    Yeah buddy!

    Got my new Schecter Diamond Series Stiletto Studio 4 last night, and this thing rocks!

    Neckthru, dual EMG soapbar pickups, 18 volt 3 band pre, bubinga top, this thang is schweet! :D

    Less than $600 too! :eek: This is a made in Korea model.

    The folks at East Coast Music Mall were cool too. I get a free setup anytime in the next year, so I can play it for awhile and figure out exactly how I want it set up before I blow my freebie.

    Will post pix tonight.

    Later

    Very cool. I've never played on of these basses but they look VERY NICE & they are very high end looking.

  8. Wow, that is VERY nice, Schecters always look good, and are so much better then Ibanez *I would say that they are close counterparts* in every way.

    Thanks guys!

    I named her "Caramellow" because the color of the neck reminds me of caramel, and the sound is sooo smooth and mellow.

    I can hardly stand to put her down! :D

    Looks like a close relative to the Deans, DeArmonds, Corts, and ESPs that I've seen from the Cort factory in Korea. Except set-up by Schecter here in the USA. If it's as good as the other products of those craftsmen it should be a heck of a bass.

    I like that matte gold finish...it's not shiny, which I think it kinda tacky.

    Sweet bass!
