I've played one of those beasts and I can say I was floored. It's a really cheap bass directed at beginners (costs 220e here) but it's got an awesome creamy finish, nice pickups, very resonant body and a very comfortable neck, tuners were great too, and controls did their job very well. This bass actually sounds and works quite good, why is it so inexpensive? It's the lowest tier Schecter (could be said SGR is to Schecter what GIO is to Ibanez) but it is fantastic. Is there something I'm missing?
