    We're going down to the factory soon to pick up some guitars. I have very little experience with Schecter basses, so I was wondering which models are good quality basses that can stand up to rigorous touring. I'd like to pick some out that I would actually want to play live and that would sound good. (I currently play Fender P-Basses but I love mine too much to be destroying them on tour). Thanks guys.

    i love every schecter bass except for the omen series.

    i would really recommend trying to find/get a California Custom Jazz.

    Yeah that's what I figured, especially since the similarities of the bodies are so close. I was just wondering if they are quality enough to actually want to play in place of a P Bass.
     
  5. Your sponsored by an instrument company, of which you have no experience with..and you are going to endorse anyways?:bag:....sweet.

    And assuming that their stuff is suspect enough to ask us how durable it is.

    I think they still make custom MIA models. Check one of those out if you can. They may have a Model T custom.

    Your closest to fender would be the Model T or Diamond J.

    I test drove one recently. Very impressive. I'm surprised you don't hear much of them.
     
  13. Schecter makes excellent stuff! You get a lot for the money. I recently sold my Schecter Stilleto Custom 5. I sold it to make room for an MTD. My only complaint on the Schecter is the narrow string spacing. had it not been for that I would have kept.
    Anyhow, you will love them.
     
  14. I was thinking this, but I'm glad somebody else said it first.

    Dude do you think I care? They are free basses. It's not like I'm stuck playing them for life if I accept them. I can just continue using Fenders if I'm not happy with them.

    you have to admit that it sound kinda funny...

    and besides most of the time people endorse brands they love, you have no experience what so ever...

    Doesn't sound amiss to me...he's got a chance to get a free bass, he's doing it.

    I thought Schecter was making a straight-up P, too. Or was that a Robert DeLeo special?

    No doubt. Be nice if they'd throw some gear towards those of us in the trenches who actually already use (and like) their stuff. :p
