I think I can say with a degree of confidence the schecter isn't for sale anymore :-)

Paul.

Congratulations on your new acquisition  (and helpfully one less temptation in my path!)

What you want is to start with that 8-string, then add some octave courses...

I bet damping strings on that's going to be challenging!

He has a roadie whose full time job is tuning his bass :D

That guy is a world class tool. I hadn't been aware of YouTube idiots as I never really watch things like this, but, a tool who plays variations of the same 5 slap licks is nothing more than he is at least on cursory glance. I'm happy to avoid it.

However on a lighter note as he's known as Davie504, it does conjure up images of science fiction dystopia where people don't have full names and have bar codes tattooed on their arms. 

I seem to have went off reservation there, but seriously, if anyone uses that idea, I want royalties.

Thanks - sounds and plays nice. 

How's the Schecter 8 holding up? Going to be a keeper or too soon to decide on that? Can you see yourself using it live or will it be just for the bedroom?

Love it thanks - tweaked the setup  a fair bit - reduced neck relief, adjusted action a little. Mainly going to be a bedroom toy - I don't really have time for being in a band for the next couple of years. My repertoire is also such that local dep jobs would be awkward too! once the kids are old enough to get themselves around and be left unattended I might start looking.
