Step Up Your Bass Tone With This Well-Heeled Schecter 5-String!

Schecter's Stiletto Custom 5 5-string electric bass will hug your front like a tailored suit. That's because this axe's maple-topped mahogany body is cut into a super-comfortable curvy shape, with a cool carved contour that also gives it an alluring modern look. A multi-laminate maple and walnut neck in a cozy C shape allows all five of this stylish Stiletto's strings to rest comfortably in your hand, and a pair of EMG 40 HZ pickups dish out clear, articulate tones from each string right down to the low B. Sleek golden hardware adds a pleasant flair, catching eyes as well as ears. And the Stiletto Custom 5 puts volume, blend, and EMG active two-band EQ controls at your disposal, delivering a wide span of tonal possibilities.

Modern-Looking Resonating Mahogany Body

The warm alluring sonic nature of mahogany will keep your mids and lows firm through every note, and you'll never be short of depth and sustain. The maple top brings in just the right amount of snap and brightness. This body has a distinctive asymmetrical cutaway that'll give you plenty of access to this baby's higher frets, and the outer edges follow a modern-looking sleek curve that rests comfortably against your front.

Two EMG 40 HZ Pickups

All five of your Stiletto Custom 5's strings will find clear and warm articulation through your two EMG 40 Hz pickups. These babies pack a ton of sonic punch, dishing out earth-shaking lows and tight, snappy highs with just the right amount of brightness. These EMG pups boast a dual-coil design that keeps unwanted noise or hum out of your signal. Both pickups are protected in a cool black shielding that keeps dirt, dust, and sweat at bay.

Tone-Crafting Controls

To give you the exact tone you're looking for, your Stiletto Custom 5 bass offers volume, blend, and EMG active two-band EQ controls. Your blend control determines the mix of each pickup, and your two-band EQ controls help you shape the right amount of darkness or brightness you want to roll into your output.

Secure and Attractive Hardware

Keeping your strings secure and in tune is your gold S-Tek bridge. Your strings will harness longer sustain and maintain their intonation for longer sessions of playing, and this dependable bridge offers an attractive shine against the maple top of your Stiletto Custom 5's body. Secure gold knurled metal tuners add a nice final touch of sophistication.

Maple and Walnut Neck

Harnessing the melodic span of your Stiletto Custom bass is this baby's cozy C-shaped multi-laminate maple and walnut neck. Maple brings in a rounded brightness to your playing, and walnut, a dense wood, exhibits similar tonal characteristics to mahogany -- plenty of mids and lows. The rosewood fingerboard on this appendage features 24 jumbo frets with tight and comfortable action.

- Resonating mahogany body with modern looking curved contour

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (25 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Ingenious"
Sound: This bass has a very versatile tone. I particularly enjoy the clean, articulate voicing and it has become a staple of "my sound." I find myself using this bass effectively in prog. metal, rock, and jazz situations. Feature: The hardware is solid and pleasing to the eye, although I did find that the paint wore off of the knobs after excessive use. I ended up creating my own wooden knobs as replacements, purely for aesthetic value. I was able to buy it directly off the shelf, and thus, the accessories included were of my own choosing. A hard case is worth buying to protect the soft finish. Ease of Use: This bass felt almost fluid beneath my fingers. The neck is nice and shallow, and the cutaway allows for easier exploration of the higher range. I have never picked up a bass I enjoyed using as much as this. Quality: This product is extremely well made. The quality of the bolt-on neck is great enough to make it feel like a neck-through. I can depend on it to take a beating without anything breaking, although dings and scratches are very easily obtained. Value: This bass was offered to me at around $500. Way too cheap for a piece of art of this caliber. Manufacturer Support: I have never had to ask for support for it directly from the manufacturer, but the retailers were very helpful in assisting me when i purchased it. The Wow Factor: My bandmates refer to it as "Sex on a Stick." Enough said. Overall: I believe that I will keep this bass for the rest of my life. I have no plans whatsoever to replace it anytime soon.

"Lovely bass"
Overall: Not a lot of variety in the sounds from this bass. But that is not a bad thing, it sounds very good. Not as crisp as a P-bass and lows are a little thin. But right in the middle, luscious sound. The good things: Great easy playing neck. Light. Thin body. Looks beautiful. Active pups. After all is said and done. It's a keeper.
Style of Music: rock, country, Christian
