schecter cv-4

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by chillinkittie, Aug 20, 2007.

  1. hello everyone!

    I am new here and i wanted to get some advice on a purchase... i'm looking at a schecter cv-4 at the moment and from what i've read its a great bass. But most of the reviews are from people who do a lot of slap bass and funk. I, however, play in a rock/punk band and I'm wondering if this bass will work out in that genre.... any help?


  2. btw, here is a little picture and description to go with this:

    I have a C4, it has EMG's as opposed to the Duncan designed. Other than that it looks like the same bass besides the Music Man style cover. It stays in tune, sounds good, It's a bright sounding bass. For slap it isn't my favorite, I prefer flat top basses rather than a curved top for that. You can get a good slap tone out of it though.

    Overall, Schecters are a good bass for the money, they're solidly built and use good components. A buddy has a Stiletto 5 string and he loves it.

    Here's my C4 so you can see the differences, it's a fast bass!

    i would test it out first because even though it's a schecter, it could still have some buzzing sound to them. i have a stiletto custom 5, it's pretty neat nothing was wrong with it. but 4 days after, i went to a local gear store and tested out an identical bass that i own and it sounded terrible. it was buzzing, and the tone was really bad, but they were still selling it for $600. i also tried the CV-4 and it buzzed lots , but i guess it was the store's lack of care which leads to the poor quality of their equipments.

    testing them first would be best, but i would say 90% of the schecters are awesome, and the remaining 10% is what people sell on ebay for $200

    Mine is very quiet.
  8. thanks everyone for the advice!
    I have heard a lot about the low action and fret buzzing on Schecters[I have a Schecter Omen 6] and I had adjust the truss on it. unfotunatly the only store that has a CV-4 in stock is about an hour and a half away from me, but I'm gonna make the trip anyway.

    oh and CapeBass- That C4 is beautiful. Maybe thats what I should be talking a look at.

    I'll let you guys know how it all turns out.
