    So I played this bass today for a few minutes.
    Seems like a nice instrument. Action seemed good, and it looks great. Suprisingly, I really like the satin gold hardware.

    Schecter must have discontinued it because I can't find anything on their site about it.
    Does anyone have one of these? What can you tell me about it?



    I think I'm jonesin' for this bass... ;)

    There used to be info on those. I remember they came out maybe a few years ago to go along with the 006/007 elite guitar models, but I don't think it caught on at all. Thay are not bad by any means, and a good value for what they cost. Is it the red one or the more natural looking model? I think that's all it came out in.

    Oops, hey, it really is there. Go to the past models section (bottom right on the main menu section) and select 004 Elite from the drop down list, it's all there.


    The natural one is real nice.

  5. I was testing a studio elite the other day...it seemed rather nice....but it was in a **** store that only sold laney amps, so cant really tell :p ...but i managed to get a catalog and their j-basses, called the california custom, looks rather nice, rear routed control cavity makes it look rather sweet
