Well, I played one of their 5 strings and it was incredible. So, I'd say go with the schecter. I just think they have a better sound than a fender.

I absolutely love Schecter. I'll save you the whole essay I used to post in these threads, and jsut say I have a Stiletto Elite-4 (IMO, the best bass they make, though that is arguable) and could not be happier. after playing that and comparing it to dozens of others, I can't think of a single other bass I'd play regularly (I still want a Ric, but for fun, not really to paly onstage). So yeah, if you like a Schecter, feel safe in buying one, they sound great, look great, and are incredibaly versitile.

ill say they are good, but arent the best. they are like their guitars, great if you dont know any better. go find a washburn and then compare (t24 or force 4) and let me know what you think is better. the washburns will blow the schecters away.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

they are awesome, i have 2 basses (and 2 guitars) from washburn. i just bought a XB925, which is the high end USA bass from washburn. and it is an awesome bass. neck is very smooth, small for a 5 string neck, which i like, (not jazz bass, but pretty close) the electronics (bartolini 3 band EQ with active/passive switch) are awesome, you can do everything with them. the wood looks awesome, weighs nearly 10 pounds, which ive never seen a bass that heavy (AFAIK).

anyways, the force and tarus lines are somewhat similar, the force is active while the taurus is passive. force is bubigna, and tarus is mahagony. thats the big difference between the 2 basses. both are great, i was gonna go with a force untill i scored a great deal on ym XB925

I'm not a very experienced player but I love my Schecter Stiletto Elite-4. Feels great, easy to play and I can get the sound I want with very little effort. I also have a Washburn XB920 and a USA Jazz Bass. The Schecter is my favorite and it was the least expensive.

I live in Canada and I can't find anywhere that has Schecters. It sucks.

That Schecter C-4 is what I currently own, and play.

Its a decent guitar. Is good with slapping and popping. Just doesnt do to well if you tune it down (FCGC), or anything lower than that. but still plays fine.

wait... isn't that uptuned.. basses are normally tuned to EADG, FCGC is tuned up unless you can pull your strings like 5 inches away from the fretboard

Schecter basses are amazing FOR THE PRICE. I have the Custom 4 and i loved it to death. Then i got a Marcus Miller Jazz and the buyild quality of that makes the C4 feel like a toy. I kid you not.

Still, i broke a string on my Jazz and that night i played the C4 and the tone is awesome on it.
#15
I love the C-4. I will also say that they are the best for the price. I have never been impressed with Washburn's woods or tone, though. To each his own.
#16
Washburns kill schecter. I'd rather have a good ol fender jazz instead too. But yeah i'd get a washburn.
#17
I say go with the Schecter. I have played a bunch of Washburns and while they were not bad, Schecter is better is all aspects

I've played some of the higher end XB-series (I even own an XB-100, was my first bass, and it was great for what I needed at the time, but a starter bass and nothing more) and taurus (sp) Washburns, and while they are good basses, I just don't care for them. They don't feel right to me. I feel the same way with MusicMan and Fender basses, I'm not saying they're bad, I just don't like them. With the eccentricies of my playing technique, I have trouble playing on them, and the sound of them isn't quite what I like. I find I can get far more variations in sound from my Stiletto Elite (which I think is far superior to any other Schecter bass, but this is once again just my opinion). I prefer the sound, look and feel of them to any other bass I've played, with the sole exception of a Ric. The only reason I don't have a Ric and I'm not in much of a hurry to get one is the limitations on the sound. I love the Ric sound, but I can do far more with my Schecter. So a lot of what I say is opinion, but I still think that you can't go wrong with a Schecter.
