"schecter hit a home run"

I had a Fender american pro jazz 5 bass and had a hard time playing it. I have short fat fingers and my Fender would just wear me out.I found this bass and tried to buy one they had none. Finally zZounds came up with some and I got my hands on it. Cut the strings off and put a set of low tension LaBalla on her the B string is a .118 they are flats and fun to play.With the narrow nut and the thin C she is more like playing a 4 string fast and smooth and sweet and a growl better than the big Fender. Yes I said it Schecter has hit it out of the park on this one. Thank you so much Schecter and zZounds!

"A beautiful bass with a major flaw."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This looks like a nice bass when you look at the specs but I would like to know who was the genius who decided to install pickups without covers. Pickups are so sensitive to the open environment. Why would anyone decide to do that?That's like shooting yourself in the foot. If you get one of these basses, expect those pups to last for no more than four or five years, if you are lucky.Everything else is perfect on this bass. The playability is excellent and the sound is incredible.
