    Hi all,

    I found one of these in a local music store:

    http://namm.harmony-central.com/WNAMM04/Content/Schecter/PR/Model-T-2004-lg.jpg

    It's was the sunburst one, and looked to be one of the newer, updated ones with the Seymour Duncan Basslines. I quite liked it, and it looked to be solid and well-made. I felt the tone was quite aggressive, similar to my Geddy.

    Any opinions on this bass?

    Thanks,


    Lyle
     
  2. Depending on the price,I would go for it. The BassLines pickups give a good growly P/J feel.

    I had an older one, before the Basslines. Mine had a white pickgaurd and Duncan Designed pups. It was a nice bass. Got it used for around $185.00

    I modified mine. Changed the 500K pots to 250K

  5. I had a black one with the Basslines pickups. My complaints were:

    1. I don't like glossy necks.
    2. There was some buzzing (not typical 60-cycle hum), which might have been a grounding issue.

    When I bought my Yammy I really didn't need the Model T anymore, but the Model T did sound pretty good, and it had solid hardware.

    I had the yellow/butterscotch model with rosewood fretboard. That bass was amazing! I wasn't huge on the glossy finished neck and if you ran just the J pickup it would buzz a bit, but other than that it was great. A great bass for little cash (when bought used).

    I really like the look of these, and I've read really great things about them, but I just can't get over my dislike for the headstock...

    I purchased one of these used online because I'm an avid Schecter fan. The truss rod had bottomed out and the neck still had to much relief in it for my tastes. The washer trick helped a mm or two, but still not enough.

    The store took the bass back... and in reality they should have payed me for improving the bass they sent me as I had shielded it and did a fret leveling on it. It was back up for sale on ebay the day after they got it back. Sold two days later.

    The bass was nice though. Just be 'aware' of a possible truss rod issue.

    Thanks for the responses everyone!

    What would be a fair used price for that bass?

    Thanks,

    I bought what I believe to be a 2002 Model T (sn0204810) for $245 on Ebay and just received it. It needed an afternoon of setup work, but I got the action lower than I can my P-bass. It's had some pickup mods I'm still trying to figure out, it's no longer active, nondescript passive pickups in place. It's got great tone, though, and a very nice J-bass sound in the higher registers. I'm going to do some work with the electronics, but all in all I'm very happy...very solid bass.
