"For the price, it's outstanding"

I start this review with the caveat that I am a guitar player... pretty much solely. I've been tracking some demos out and have been using a couple of different plugins for my bass... and they're fine... BUT there's just something about a human playing a bass that is just "better" to me. After debating over a few different models, I bought the Schecter Stiletto Extreme 4. It is absolutely insane how nice this bass is straight out of the box. I literally tuned it, plugged it into my Kemper, found a nice patch, hit record, and off we went.The neck feels great. Again, I'm a guitarist with not much experience on bass at all in four decades of playing... so the thin, almost Rickenbacker-style neck is great. Very smooth and consistent. Doesn't tire out my hand at all. The knob setup/electronics allow you to dial in just about any kind of bass tone you can imagine.Cosmetically, it's gorgeous... the top is ridiculous, the inlays, the general aesthetic of the bass is top-notch.The sole "complaint" I have is that it could use a separate battery compartment for the (very nice) Schecter active pickups... the battery is under the main backplate. Having to deal with taking off a plate that is screwed into the wood instead of just flipping a latch open... not a huge fan, but it's honestly a rather minor deal.Overall, if you are in need of a bass... this is a CRAZY good deal for the price.
