I put together a video demo and review on the bass. It's really something all together different for Schecter. The neck is noticeably slimmer and the the weight is cut down from series like the Hellraiser, although they weren't back breakers to begin with. The Fluence are a beast unto themselves. Really different. I'll give them a round of applause for having their own distinct tone, rather than being a "our version" an already existing sound. They have more options than I was able to get my head around right away. I'll be following this one shortly with a video just on the Fishmans. I give it a 10 on looks. Really just a beautiful instrument.
