New arrival

After what seems like an eternity ( a few days really :joy:) the couriers have delivered my latest member of my bass family this morning.
Horrified my wife and probably the bass by ripping out the beginning of a Glen Campbell tune and then settled in to something a bit more fitting.

Damn all-black beauty with the black headstock. That’s a lost brother of my two blacks sitting next to me. Very nice.

It’s a Schecter DV4 devil custom @PamPurrs.
Owned previously by Leeno Dee of Dept of Gloom previously bass for Jerk and Candy Harlots.

Pop round when you want @TNKA36. Kettles always on :+1:

Just had a little while playing about on the bass. It’s tone is to die for and a real joy to play. I’ve bought a set of Fender flats to put on it but ( and I’d never thought I would say this) she sings with these rounds on so they will be staying atm.
The neck is not dissimilar to my Rickenbacker and the custom pickup is great.
Can’t see an awful lot of anything getting done today :joy:

Beautiful! Congratulations!

I’ve been eyeing a Schecter P-4 (as below) on Reverb for a while now (I have a strong and sudden urge for a passive P. Maybe I should see a doctor :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:). But I can’t find much information about whether it is good, bad or indifferent (seems also to be a discontinued model). I’d be interested to hear your review of your new (albeit very different) Schecter in due course. You might push me over the edge!

Edit: just read your second post with your glowing initial review.
I might well pull the trigger …

I’ve been itching for a p bass, and have been looking at the P4, which is still in production. But jamming on my C4 GT these days, I really like Schecter

Thanks. Good to know that I’m not alone! (I can’t find the P-4 listed on Schecter’s website any more - that’s why I thought they’d stopped making them.)

maybe they have, they have a few p bass models out there, like the Banshee and P4 Exotic. Bassporn did some vids playing some Schecter p basses

Yeah, problem for sinistral old me is that there are no lefties in the Banshee or Exotic up (plus, I think the Exotic is an active bass).

Edit: anyway - apologies due to @mac. We’re off the subject of the thread (my fault).

Not being able to leave well alone and not wanting to waste my new strings I eagerly unwrapped the package that arrived days ago only to find that they weren’t Fender flats in it but GHS boomers !
I remember changing my mind now and thinking I’d give these ago.
The verdict…I like them.
I’ve restrung the bass through the body and not just to the bridge as it was originally done and I’m very happy with the results.
I will attempt a cover in a day or two

Sweet bass. I really like Schecters, every one I have ever picked up just felt RIGHT.
Enjoy.
Looking forward to the cover.

Rounds are Awesome strings. My Heavily Calloused finger tips will tell you the same.

They somehow hide them in the Retro section :sweat_smile:

They don’t seem to have the lefty in production though :unamused:

Thanks @Jazzbass19

I’ve not long since put it down and I must say I really like it.
Only complaint is the lack of anything to rest my thumb on when playing E but that’s soon remedied.
I’ve also found a few little fancy bits of embellishment on eBay which will no doubt be winging their way to me at some point in the near future but that’s a little way off ( if I can resist :joy:)
Strap locks are on their way and I have begun the hunt for a suitably gothic strap .
