    Schecter DeLeo sig Model T. Had one years ago, miss its big EMG sound. Kinda a rare bird, had to bid on it. Hoping when it arrives it will be a bit lighter than the previous one.

  2. I've wondered about those. Is it U.S. made?

    True that. If I was still married, I'd be sleeping in my car tonight! Just snagged that one-off green custom from Drum City, as well. Oy.

    Korean made (the green custom too). The USA Schecter stuff can be kinda spendy.

    I've been to Drum City when I lived in Denver. Tiny, jammed store but they are supposedly the largest Schecter dealer in the country. They get protos and one-offs regularly.

    Must be, but I wouldn't know.

    Ask Munjibinga.

    Isn't that $200 more than a standard Model T?

    Pretty sure you're right.

    Thanks, I thought so too. They answered a buncha questions I had about it, and weighed it for me, 9lbs, 4oz. (not bad).

    If they are anything like the early 80's Fender clones, these are top flight. My main bass was a lawsuit headstock jazz for years.

    glad to have helped you spend your money.
    be sure to post a thread when it comes in. the bound neck and body are pretty killer looking on it.
