Schecter Hellcat Bass / TB-1

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Matthew West, Sep 5, 2001.


  1. I've been wanting one of these for years, but no one around me stocks them. Has anyone ever played one of these, and if so, what was your impression? This is one of the American made Schecter custom shop basses, not one of the Diamond Series pieces. I think they sell for around $1400.00

    Alternately, I'm considering a TB-1. It's a discontinued model based on the Tempest body. It's also a Diamond Series model, but I already have a Diamond Series Tempest, and it's built better than most American Gibsons or Fenders. Anyone ever played one of these?

  3. One more try before I let it go.

    Actually....Deynn has an AB 1Plus...;)

    IMHO....a greatly overlooked bass. As with every instrument, it's a matter of personal choice, but I cannot say enough good things about mine. It's easy for me, to definitely see another Schecter in my bass future.;)
     
  7. Does anyone have any experience with the USA made basses?
