Schecter started out as a company that made components that many used to upgrade their guitars and basses (pickups, etc.).

They decided to make their own stuff in whole clothe.

Pretty good performance/price point.

I picked up a CV-5 from the place I was taking guitar lessons. They were merging with another place and their inventory was marked down a bit.

Based on the advice of our esteemed bass expert, I'm picking up a Fender Noir Limited Edition P-bass tomorrow.  I currently have a Washburn XB100, which (IMO) is an excellent low-cost starter bass, but it's time to upgrade.  I've been playing more often at church and very frequently at school.  I'm startying to think I'm a bass player that started out on and plays acoustic most of the time.   :lol:

Kudos. Looks nice. Time to strip it down and give it a good waxing with some canuba wax on the body and some lemon oil on the fret board.



I got this when the shop I was taking lessons at merged with another. I'm rethinking the 5 string though.

She's home.  Neds a setup though.  Literally like new- the plastic is still on all the bits!  It came with all the new paperwork and stuff.

Played it on Rocksmith for awhile.  It's fun!  Sold my Washburn to a buddy who came over tonight.  The guy is selling me the fit Fender case as well.    :thumbsup:

Fourstring is always reading Talk Bass listings to me.  It's incredible what people buy then never use.  But then again, this is a motorcycle forum.  I should be used to it!
She's got a worm in 'er belly? That's disgusting! That's interesting, but very disgusting.

Installed Shaller locks on the Schecter. It's a heavy bastid and gives the Les Paul a run for its money (weight-wise).

Easily swap 1 strap between guitars without multiple straps or messing with o-rings/washers.

For all the people that reside there, the center of the universe must be awfully crowded.

That is a nice find! Can you say how much they were asking?

He was asking $495, then $450.  I jumped at $450 and got it for $450 with a fit Fender case.  It really was brand new and had not been played other than plugged in and checked at his house.

I remember seeing that live (first airing). I was in tears from laughing so hard.
