    OK, so i started playing in December with a Peavey Zodiac + Amp combo and I've really enjoyed playing and am now looking to upgrade. I need suggestions for a new amp and Bass within 250- 600 dollars each. I'm really thinking about a Schecter Stiletto any suggestions?

    G&L Tribute L2000

    Very diverse bass...lots of tonal possibilities. Nice low end and it growls!! Very good craftsmanship. Swamp ash body, maple neck, same exact electronics as the American made G&L. Here is a youtube demonstration.....

    I got mine from americanmusical and I am very happy with this bass.

    Don't know much about Schecter basses, but I agree with the guy who mentioned a G&L Tribby. They're about as good as it gets for a new instrument in that price range and would be perfect for classic rock IMO.

    Yeah, G&Ls have all the best qualities of the classic rock staples (jazz, precision, rickenbacker, etc).

    The other thing to consider is your preference in neck size.

    A used MIJ Fender Jazz is a good choice for rock and a good condition model can be had for around $450.

    Definitely try or buy the Stiletto Elite. (Trying = buying). You will not be disappointed. Very fast and smooth neck, sweet sound and looks. I love mine.

    I can't urge you to stay away from the Studio's enough. The Schecter Diamond series are really fake sounding and are very one-dimensional. The EQ is really cheesy as well. IMO, of course.

    If you want a great sounding bass, the G&L 2000 is your man. Built like a tank, with a REAL preamp and good pickups.
