    theres an add on craigslist for a schecter c4 for 200 bucks at a local shop add just came on today

    gonna go up there 1st thing tomorro and try to trade it for my epiphone eb3 (its in like new condition barely played it and dont like the tone soo much) :bassist:

    soo anyone got any advice or expiereance with the c-4

    does it sound like a fair trade (i think so considering they usually sell used for 200) but i figured they wana make money off of it so ive considered trying to trade in and pay a little extra 50 at the most

    my friend just a schecter 5 string hellraiser or damien cant remember which but i loved it . he dosent he's plannin on taking it back and getting the stilleto and that's how i came across the add for the c4

    i currently have a hofner b-bass hi series that ive fallen in love with. super thin neck, awesome (twangy tone unplugged).
    a cort curbow 4string i'm very fond of that i plan on refinishing .
    a squire pj special (dont care what anyone says that is a solid bass.)started playing on that one when i was younger (it's techniquely my dads but ive had it for years)

    and the eb3. i love the look and feel.seems well constructed but i just dont feel the tone

    i think the stilleto would take its place well please let me kno what yall think

    I have a Schecter C-4 XXX from 2005. It's totally unlike any of my other basses, but it plays great and gives me that totally different sound when I need it.

    Go try it out for yourself and see what you think.

    Funny...I had the same model for a year! VERY nice bass, lovely fit and finish. Play it and see what you think - I was impressed by Schecter.

    i played it for about 5 mins it was awesome. super thin neck. soo low action with no buzz and nice tone. even if their just the emghz they beat the hell outta my mighty mite pickup ha. gotta love the soap bars tho

    i'll post pic after i pick it up. verysimilar to the red one mogpipe posted.CANT WAIT TO BRING IT HOME:hyper::bassist:
