    I didn't weigh it but the first thing I said when I picked it up was that it feels about the same weight as my jazz, so somewhere right around 9 lbs, which is ok with me.

    I am waiting for mine to come today, I’m really excited to try it out. I’ve only read good things, and some great sounds from YT..
    I’m really hoping that I get one on the lighter side, and also good fretwork. That’s the main thing. I’m so used to my US lakland that has impeccable fretwork, if I get any buzzes it’s probably going back. I do great set up work, but frets are something I don’t screw with. Have any of you guys had any schecters that had shotty fretwork?

    I have no problem doing fret Jobs if needed and none of my 7 Schecters needed anything but set up to my liking. 3 of them are newer instruments and my 4 Model T's are the Old style/non Session's. One of the older used Model-T's that I have, the only one crafted in China, has had fretwork done on it. I can tell because whoever done it didn't do a very good job of re-crowning the frets but, I'm not going to do anything to it because it plays and sounds so good as it is. The Bass is pretty road-worn so I suspect someone played the frets half off of it and did some fretwork before the sold it to the previous owner that I purchased it from.
    All the recent reports I've read on the Model T Session have been really good. I really believe you'll be very impressed with the Craftsmanship. Unless Schecter changed something, the stock strings SUCK, IMO and others also. So be prepared to get a new set of strings to enhance the tone once you check everything else out.

    Thanks for your response Ed.unfrtunately, this ones going back, it had a one inch long scratch on the neck. It’s a shame, It sounds and plays and feels amazing. It is on the heavier side around 10 pounds. Hopefully the exchange works out a little better... but as far as the playability and sound, wow!! Also this first one they sent me, it had a strange imperfection in the grain pattern, looking at it from a few feet away at right angle it looks like a four inch jagged scratch. I’ll try and post a pic later.
