    I don’t really know anything about dUg or his music but I absolutely loved the sound of that bass. That was great!:thumbsup: No chorus?

    As the octave strings are above the root string does that mean it’s to be played with the fingers then? Does the bridge allow for them to be reversed if the player wishes to do so? I guess then the tuners would need to be rearranged too.

    The icing on the cake for me is that Schecter is making it in lefty too.:D I was going to buy a gorgeous white/tort Diamond J fiver a couple of years ago but then they discontinued it.

    This is going to the top of my post-shoulder replacement surgery GAS list. Too heavy for now.

    How do I link this thread to the lefty club thread? The word needs to be spread.:)

    I own one. 20 pounds is about double what it is.

    I owned one that was substantial but nowhere near 20 lbs. A friend owns a newer one and if anything it is much lighter than I expected

    In the link specs as 10.5 lbs.
    I was responding to @ElectricBass72 unfounded claim of 20 lbs.
    They’ve been selling it for just over twenty years now which to me is pretty amazing for such a niche instrument.

    Yes, I was agreeing with you. My friends new one is super nice and plays great.

    Serious neck dive, I'm a lot younger than dUg is, but I'd struggle if I had to play this baby for more than 4 tracks live... Anyone have any idea for a strap to counteract neck dive... is there such a thing?

    Oh and weight is just under 10lb, I weighed it the other day.

    Somehow this slipped past me. I'm wondering if that bridge is a Sung Il like on the Schecter/ESP 8s. If so, I imagine some folks like @Basvarken and @Dadagoboi might be interested to know about it. I couldn't find it on the Sung Il site.

    The bridge set looks exactly the same as the one that Dean uses.
    I used this bridge set too for the first 12-string bass that I built.
    But I must say I'm quite happy with the ETS bridge set that I've been using the last three 12 string basses that I built.

    The ETS looks pretty special for a XII, that's for sure. ;)

    I've got the chance to buy a used USA Hamer B12L locally, priced similar to a new Schecter DP12. I can't try any of them. Which one would you grab?

    I will play them with a pick, and I slightly prefer two pickups full on tonewise.

    i personally like the wider string spacing on the dUg compared to the my Hamer, but i know for some the wide necks arent good.

    Thank you for chiming in, I was waiting for your opinion.

    What about neck dive? Is any of them significantly worse than the other?

    Are there more tone options with the Hamer?

    Some more info about strengths and weaknesses of each one, please? I'll be very grateful for your answers.

    i dont play the hamer much anymore, but i dont think the neck dive is much different between the two. youll always have more tone options with 2 pickups, but i was never a fan of the pickups in my hamer so im not the right one to answer that for you.

    Thank you. I also slightly prefer the tone of the Schecter from the very few clips available. The EMG's of the Hamer sound a bit harsh in the high end, don't they?
