    i found one of these in my local pawn shop. looks almost untouched. they are asking 350 for it so i was wondering what the going rate for a used schecter rob deleo 4 string would be. and i know they are discontinued so that will make it a little harded to determine but just shoot me some prices that i should try and get the pawn guy down to. thanks.

    oh and if it matters its the old gold coloured one with the p+j emg's.

    hmmm
    Does the import model have EMGs? Seems like an average price, maybe a little high but for some reason I thought only the USA models had EMGs.

    I'd try to talk them down to $275.00 or $300.00 max. I've seen brand new 5 strings go for $250.00 on ebay. I bought one for $225.00 on ebay.

    it says schecter USA on the back where the battery is. i am not sure how to tell the difference. (it dosnt say a country on the headstock like a fender). and the pick-ups said emg on them. hope that helps. shoot me some prices to throw at the pawn guy.

    i cant find anywhere that says if there was a mia version of this model or if they were all made in asia. and i attempted to email them but their email sever is down.

    i know there are occational finds down in central Ga, where i am, because nobody here uses the internet so they dont know what things are worth. ex. i saw multiple mim's basses cost more then squires because the squires were shinnier and newer. there was a mia tele that was going for like 450.

    on that note, i saw a fender musicman/jazzman/something man in the pawn shop and had never heard of a ___man fender. (i am new to the scene as you can tell). if these are good i might consider this as well.

    THere are MIA versions of it....they come out of the California Schecter custom shop and would be quite expensive. Say maybe $1600.00.
     
  8. If it's not from the custom shop it was made in Korea. If it says Diamond Series it's made in Korea. They are all set up in the USA and have a sticker that says Schecter USA on back plate. It's still a good bass try to get them below $300.
