I bought this bass sight-unseen. I had heard people rave about Schecter basses before, but had never actually seen one up close. I have always played passive pups through a Sansamp DI which I love... I decided to give this one with the 18v preamp built in. BOY AM I GLAD I DID! I love this thing. First off, it's beautiful. Best looking bass I have ever laid eyes on. Also, straight out of the box it was in tune, and set up perfect for me. The action is great, the neck is smooth and fast, the bass is balanced and lightweight. All that said, the best feature is the SOUND. I love the active 3 band EQ. I believe you could take any plain Jane amp and get a tone straight outta the bass for any genre imaginable. I am totally sold on Schecter. I plan on getting a Schecter guitar next, and a few more of their basses on down the road. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.
