Product Description

The Stiletto series basses are hands down Schecter's most popular basses. Combining high Tech looks and upper-register playability, the Stiletto is the perfect match for many styles of playing. This 5-string model is 35-inch scale, which yields an extremely tight Low "B". These neck-thru beauties have an exotic Bubinga top, finished in a Natural Honey Satin finish. The Studio is armed with EMG Hz pickups, but adds a MID CONTROL on the 18 Volt 3-Band EQ. Other features include Grover tuners and 24 frets.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (77 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Yeah, baby"
Sound: One important that sets this bass apart from so many others is the ability to boost or cut the mids. The one problem I had is that when I plug it into my SWR Super Redhead, I get a buzz when I boost the highs. I believe the fix is to shield the well that holds the components. Overall, it's an excellent instrument at a fraction of the price of ones with similar features and playability. Feature: The bass comes with elixer strings, which take some getting-used-to, because they feel slippery. Once you get your hands around them, you find they sound great. The hardware is top flight, the tuners -- terrific. I love the look of the bridge and remember, this is a neck-through bass -- again others makers want a lot more for this feature. Quality: This is an extremely well made bass, in my opinion. It's got a solid feel and is easy to handle. Value: I actually negotiated a price below the sticker in many of the ads I've seen for this bass, which adds to what I consider an already excellent value. Manufacturer Support: I found the people at Schecter to be quite responsive. They answered my e-mail question about the buzz promptly and suggested the shielding. The Wow Factor: It's hard to get too excited about a natural finish. It looks great, but not sexy. Let's face it -- it sounds wonderful and if you're packing killer guns and have been doing your crunches, you'll get all the attention with this that you need. Overall: This bass is tight -- no flop on the low B, great range of sounds -- I would not hesitate to recommend this instrument to another musician. (I'd also love to try this baby in a fretless. I'm sure that would be killer.)

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Love this damn thing!"
Sound: Tons of tone. Deep, smooth. Highs where you need them and those heavy lows that's called for in today's music. One of the best, if not THE best, sounding basses I've ever played. Feature: This bass is beautiful. I really don't see anything else that would be needed. But it still looks sleek... Ease of Use: Like a breeze... Within 20 minutes of playing, had it adjusted just the way I like it. Quality: Haven't had long but this thing feels like a tank. Quality is Grade A. But with Schecter, quality has NEVER been a worry! I'm gonna have this Bass for a long, long time... Value: Worth every penny if not more! And the 4 installment payments take away every excuse for not owning one of these babies. Manufacturer Support: Never Needed. The Wow Factor: Here's where I'm confused. I've read reviews where people have stated, as far as looks go, there was no real WOW factor. My opinion could not be farther from that. I love the See Thru Black Satin! Absolutely Beautiful. I don't like lots of colors. This is a sexy, mean looking bass. And the look is really intensified by the sound coming out of it. Overall: Just got this Bass today and couldn't wait to dig into the box. Was the longest 3 days waiting for it to get here after ordering through zZounds... I got the See Thru Black Satin and it is Gorgeous. Played perfectly right out of the box. Set up was great, can't really see any adjustments needed as of yet. I've played guitar for about 35 years but started playing bass about 25 years ago because the group I was in needed a bass player. I've played Charvel, Ibanez, and Warick Basses and I would put this up there with all of them if not above all of them. I am a Huge Schecter fan. I had a Schecter XXX 4 string that I loved but wanted to move to a 5 string so I got this. I also have a Schecter Hellraiser FR, a Schecter Classic, and a Schecter Damien elite. I record at home through my Delta 1010LT Sound card on my computer using guitar rig 5 and was hoping this Bass would sound ok through that and WOW, was I blown away. This Bass is worth EVERY penny! The passive EMG Hz's are quiet and don't make a sound you don't want. Something I look for due to recording straight into the computer. If you're on the fence about buying this bass, jump off now and run to the computer! ORDER THIS THING.
