    Just depends on what you're looking to do.

    (based on my experiences with my EMG-40 loaded active 3-band Studio Pro 5.)
    The Schecter can give you deep thumpy with Flats on it. It can give you bright and edgy with Steels on it. What I've found they do not do well is a low-mid Jazzy sound.

    I fought with mine for quite a while, then I put flats (chromes) on it and it has found a firm home as a deep dub'ee vintage sounding bass. At least for my use. I use on things like fingerstyle things like Sublime, "I will Survive" by cake, John Mellencamp, and instances where I may want a muted flats w/ pick thumpy sound. When I'm not using it I'm using my OLP mm32 which I'm extremely happy with.

    The combo of those two definitely works well for me. Everyone will have different experience and outlook.

    In a trade you'd be lucky to get $200-250 for it and I'm sure it's worth a whole lot more than that to you!

    If you can afford it I'd keep it as a second bass to support the Jazz or the P. If you really need to sell then classifieds (good one here!) are likely to get you more money than a trade. Of course a trade gives you the least hassle!

    Good luck.
