    What are the Diamondback series? The picture of the c1 elite on guitar center says diamondback series but on schecters site they dont show anything with diamondback series.

    I have a Schecter Diamond Series bass, never heard of Diamondback Series though.
    edit-
    Is THIS what you're talking about? Diamond Series, not Diamondback.
    But anyway, it's just a name they gave a series of guitars and basses, certain body types I guess.

    Aren't almost all new Schecters called "diamond series"? I know my Elite 5 string bass has it.

    WTF are you talking about? They still make and sell Diamond Series basses, I own one, Slapnpopbass owns one. I saw a bunch in Guitar Center literally 2 days ago.
    I'm still not 100% sure what the title means (it's the body style or anything since they put it on a lot of different models), I can't figure that part out, but I do know they still make them and they are good basses/guitars.

    I was saying they dont sell them anymore because if you go on Schecters site they dont have one picture of any guitar that says diamond series on it.

    This is from guitar center
    [​IMG]
    It says diamond series on it.

    This is from schecters site.
    [​IMG]
    It doesnt say diamond series.

    So I thought that guitar center just didnt update there pictures... but idk whatever. I just thought there was a difference since its not on schecters site.

    Edit: wtf I put image tags around the links how come there not working.

    "Diamond Series" is a euphemism for "made in South Korea".

    Unfortunately (sp?)

    The sticker on my Elite 5 reads "Set up to play by Schecter- USA" On the back of the headstock says crafted in South Korea. I wonder what "set up to play" exactly means...

    It probably means the body, neck and hardware were assembled (or "crafted") in South Korea, but the neck, bridge, intonation and strings were adjusted in America before they were shipped to Guitar Center or wherever they end up. There is a LOT of setting up to do to a bass neck and bridge when it's first put together.
