    I’m a little tweaked about the scratch behind the 4th/low E string unamused.png I didn’t even notice it until I was taking pictures, though, and I did get it for $200 off already 2.png I’m not returning it, but maybe I can get a little extra off eyes.png That seems like I’m being petty, though.

    I really do love the Stiletto body shape, and Schecter necks are turning out to be tu blave. And it was intonated perfectly, too, as well as being built in South Korea vs Indonesia smiley.png Allegedly the better place out of the two I've read?

    (I'm leaving the over-sized emoji lol.... hilarious XD )

    I snagged one, too, before '21 was over, luckily. Also luckily, I was able to fit a Schaller bridge on (had one on my parts shelf), so the action could be way lower than the stock bridge. I had to move the string spacers all to the left, because of the different bridge placement, but no new holes had to be drilled.

    There are blemishes on mine, of which Musician's Friend didn't spot (finishing splotches on the headstock), so they knocked off $50, taking the price down to under $670.

    After some Gotoh Resolites (also on my parts shelf) and Q-Parts knobs were put on, it's a stellar bass for the money...imo, rivals a Spector Euro I once had, and that says a lot.

    If there’s a scratch I can’t see it from what you posted while looking at it on my iPhone. I’m sure you can though.

    Worth a try getting some money off. Best of luck.:thumbsup:

    I think your S/N starts with W or WK which stands for the ‘World Korea’ factory.
    They’ve been around and have made many basses and guitars for many manufacturers.

  5. I came close to pulling the trigger on one of those. I loved the neck. Congratulations!

    Finally got a strap for it I love. Purple instruments seem hard to find straps for (almost as hard as the instruments themselves lol), either straight purple or black/grey, or it's the wrong purple, other colors, etc.

    I feel like the gothiness of this goes really well with the Stiletto, which really comes across with a gothic rock/metal sorta vibe:
