    I was able to score a good deal on this mint condition 1999 Schecter Custom Shop Model - T. It's a Swamp Ash - Maple/Rosewood combo. Before the bass shipped from the dealer, I had the stock Duncans swapped out for a set of the new Michael Anthony Schecter Monstertone pickups.

    As most of my instruments are green in finish, I'm going to have to follow suite with this one. This is my current refinish idea: candy apple green burst

    That is awesome! I've always loved the look of these (and Robert DeLeo playing them!). Is that MA bridge pickup a true single coil?

    Yes it is. The pair is a hotter version of their standard Monstertone pickups.

    Are you planning to cover up that awesome looking green burst with the pickguard?

    Yes. I think the pickguard gives this model it's distinctive look.

    This bass came with a set of Ernie Balls that I killed pretty fast. I just restrung it tonight with a set of SIT Rock Bright Steel, and man is it singing. So good!

    It's totally your choice, and green is my favorite color (hence my name) But I am totally digging that wood grain! I'd at least consider a transparent green finish on that!
