    The US Schecter Jazzes are very nice. As far as the rest of the line... dunno.

    I think the Diamond series is pretty good stuff.
    I've played a couple at Samuels and was very impressive for a $550.00 (+/-)bass.
    4 or 5 they did very well. I think they're a good value.

  4. I gotta Robert DeLeo model T.
    The sound is what you would expect outta a Fender P+L config.
    Neck is similar to a jazz, but widens quite quickly around the 7th fret.
    I'd say it weighs a little more than my Stingray.
    Nice fit and finish, but a little to heavy for me.
    Neck is also too wide for my smaller hands.
     
  5. I've said this before on here, I have a stiletto 4 and I love it, no complaints whatsoever.
     
  6. i tried out one of the new stilletto studio basses, the five string. it's an awesome bass for the money and im gonna pick one up for a backup. i recommend them to everyone

    A local shop has a big Schecter variety and I've tried a lot of them. They are beautiful and sound great. I say go for it.
