    Okay, I have a question about my Stargazer 5. It has a 2008 serial number, but all records say that it was only made from 2009 to 2010. It also doesn't have a push/pull pot for series/parrallel. Does that mean mine is a prototype? Or am I mistaken on the manufacturing years?
  2. Not knocking the knowledge base here, but the best way to get correct (or near-correct) answers to your questions would be to email Schecter directly. I did once about something and they responded quickly.

    I have, and they just replied that it was a factory second from 2008. It does have a 2 stamped int the back of the headstock, so I assumed it was. But, when I checked later on all the schecter records it doesn't show any Stargazer 5's before 2009.

    Shameless self bump

    I've got the same bass stamped 2008 (not B stock). No coil tap on mine either (would be cool to have though).

    I think Schecter is little funky with their 'Vault' and the manufacture dates.

    I've got a Schecter Hellcat guitar that is stamped 2003, but the Schecter site says this was a one-time 2005 model (no tremelo).
