For Years I have played on a Fender Jazz bass and a Yamaha 5 string. They are nice, but but this Schecter diamond series is light weight and the neck is thin. Easy to play sounds great with the two emg pick ups. I just bought two vintage Ibanez Musician basses recenly that I fancy. But the light weight and great neck action is changing my thinking about playing bass. I will get my Ampeg V4 head back next week and give it a shot. Anyone try a schecter diamond series? here is a picture. Aaah Let me Know ? Glenn.
