    Guys,

    Several colors of the Schecter Diamond P & Diamond J models are on a pretty deep discount on Amazon right now. You can get the Black or Metallic Blue P's and the Diamond J in white for $308.47 each with free shipping!

    Also the 3TS J is $387.24.

    The Black J and White P are regular price- $499

    Just as an update, I took the Amazon price and went to Music123 for their price.
    They quoted me $274.15 with free shipping on the metallic Blue B bass/

    Both the P and J look cool. I cant find many specs like nut width and if they J has humbuckers or single coils. I think its buckers because the tone knob has a push pull coil tap. I emailed Music123 to see if they can do a 123% price match, which would make these about $238.

    I think the tap on the J changes wiring between series and parallel while the tap on the P changes the bridge from humbucking to single coil.

    The quality of those basses are outstanding even at their regular price let alone that insane M123 match price. My Diamond P is every bit as good as my Fender American Std Jazz in build and finish quality.

    I am a P/J guy all the way, and I've yet to read a bad thing about these basses. I wish Music123 would give me a price match quote already. Tired of waiting.

    What does the 123% guarantee mean? Do they beat the lowest price by 23%? I emailed about a different item and they replied by beating the price by $.50.

    I'd keep sending requests until I got a response and the price I wanted. If the price isn't what other TBers got maybe see if one would be willing to forward you a copy of the quote so you can leverage that instead.

    They beat the price by 23% of the difference.
    Amazon price $300
    Music123 price $400
    Price difference equals $100
    Price match price would be $277

    OK that makes sense. I got a quote of $265 or so. Your explanation makes sense with the quote I got. So why did kjpollo get quoted about $9 more?

    Outcomes are totally unpredictable with this.

    Totally.

    I've come to the conclusion that the process is simply too complicated for them to reliably calculate in real time.

    Finally got them to match the Korg Pitchblack, but when I got off the phone, I see that they totally effed up the discount they intended to give me.

    :rollno:

    Would more seriously consider it if it DIDN'T have the EMG Pups.

    The EMGHz's concern me a bit but I'm hoping they will be acceptable. I just bought the Schecter 8 and a Warwick Rockbass Corvette Active 4 in nirvana black for a total of $712.
     
  15. +1. I just can't find a taste for EMG's anymore. What can I say, Joe Zon ruined me with Bartolini's!!! >=]]

    Yet I find myself drooling over the DV-4 on Amazon for dirt effin' cheap!

    Is the DV-4 schecter SG/Ripper looking sunburst on Amazon?At least with the DV-4 you can easily swap in an MM sized pickup. Is that the case with the schecter 8? I dont recognize that size pickup. Then again, the Humbucker in the Diamond P custom looks proprietary too, so it better rule :)

    The schecter 8-string has EMG HZ humbuckers; the same size as active EMG 'buckers, and a pretty easy size to find replacements for.

    $350's not that hot of a price. They were that for ages on MF and they also had the nicer 2-pickup custom for that. I passed on $350 -20% on these because I didn't want another EMG HZ bass and Schecters are a hard sell locally if I wanted to get out from under it.

    The custom was sort of a joke as it had a regular HZ neck and the MM HZ bridge -- and these are internally identical pickups in different shells. :rolleyes:
