Help me figure out what I bought. I rolled the dice and picked up a nice Schecter PJ bass. I'm trying to figure out what exactly it is.
It's a Fender P clone with the older Schecter/Fender headstock. Easiteach Next Generation Keygen. All hardware is stamped Schecter, and it has the old simple Schecter logo on the headstock. Serial is A-79XX stamped on the neck plate. I haven't disassembled.
It would be interesting to look under that pickguard and see if the body is routed for more pickups or not. My '80's Koa number has a pickguard but only the single hum route (and no serial on the plate= 'kit?' ), so my options are limited(as are the tones available B) ). The trem used on our Ebay subject is a. Aug 18, 2007 The serial number stamped on the Schecter branded neck plate is four digits in the format 80** or 81** can't remember which.

I do have a question out to Schecter to see if they can confirm it's lineage. Any help from my fellow TBers will be greatly appreciated. I've owned a lot of US Schecter stuff and the ones like yours are really hard to tell. I passed on a bunch just like it because of that.

All early Schecter stuff that I've owned has Schecter burned into the neck either on the heel or on the back of the headstock.
These parts were of the highest quality and they feel like you have a product from Sadowsky or U.S. Lakland in your hand. I've often seen the necks paired with Boogie Bodies bodies.
