    Pay close attention to the string spacing on the Schecter before laying down cash for it. I thought my Studio 5 would be the best bass for me to learn on, and within a few months of owning it I found that I do like a little bit of pop/slap and that my 5'er is too tight for my preference all around..

    Maybe the Studio 4 has better string spacing, I don't know.. But looking at the pics of it I'm guessing it's a little tight as well..

    Personally, I'd rather have the Cort. I've never been a fan of glossy finished necks, which is one thing that turns me off about Schecters. Plus, the Cort has the 3-band Bartolini MK-1 preamp and pickups. The preamp isn't that great but I like the pickups fine. The Schecter only has a 2-band pre.

    This last weekend I picked up the schecter stilletto at guitar center and maybe the battery was dead And it was set up poorly by gc. But It sounded terrable and the low b string felt floppy. Even though I have no experience with the cort I would recomend that one

    Active basses use "active' electronically powered pickups from a 9v in the back) that auto pre-amp your sound cutting out hum and other crap.

    Passives just use magnetics

    ok, so would a fender deluxe active bass be a good option as well?
    and does anybody know if the fender 24 v is a mexican?
