Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (24 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.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Stiletto's arn't just high heels"
Sound: So far the sound is clean and bold and with all the punch you could ever ask for. It sound as good through my Fender 100w practice amp as it does through the big rig Hartke 7000. I still play my Jazz bass but not as often as before. Feature: I really like the active EQ. You can make as bright or as deep as you want. What I really could have used was a tech Manual of any kind, the bass came with nothing but the box. Ease of Use: again the manual would have helped figure out the controls. Quality: The Schecter Stiletto 5 is solid as a rock, I am worried about the finish it feels like it will be easy to damage, but I still love it. Value: I got a great deal! Thanks to zZounds for that. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to deal with the company yet, but I'll be looking into getting the manual. The Wow Factor: the Stiletto looks good. The active EQ sound great. What's not to love about it. Overall: I'll keep this bass untill it or me falls apart.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
