The latest news in my search for my perfect bass is that I may have found it! ... aaaand it was evidently discontinued, blown out of every store around for a lousy $200, and all around forgotten about as of last Christmas, one dang month ago. Alack! for the Schecter Raiden Special 5 See-Through BlueBurst that might have been! If only my quest and my tax refund were five weeks quicker, doggone it. So now I'm wondering if you old heroes have any knowledge about ,"Well, they SAY they're gone, but you can still find one if you contact [...] or check the [...] or ask your music shop to [...]" or any tips you may have about finding just-barely-eliminated models. Or has the ship sailed forever, and my only hope lies in waiting for a GASser to eventually get bored and sell one?
