Studio quality sound; onstage eye-appeal.

The Schecter Stiletto Studio-8 Bass Guitar is a sleek, sexy, sharp-looking bass loaded with features that count. Its doubled strings give it a unique, rich sound while maple and walnut neck-thru construction gives it excellent sustain. A mahogany body gives it tone and resonance. EMG-Hz pickups and active 3-band tone circuitry deliver the output and sonic selectability you need. The neck plays fast and smooth, and satin gold hardware adds a touch of class, perfectly accenting the beautiful bubinga top.

  • Awesome little bass

    As reviewed by JEFFREY TRIBBY on 7/29/2013

    The write-up just ahead of mine was obviously for an 5-string bass. This bass is definitely an 8-string. I saw it on the store floor recently and just had to check it out. when I picked it up and began to notice the craftmanship and the features, it started calling to me - by name! The neck-through-body construction and finish are impeccable. It has two active EMG pickups that give this baby a very wide tonal and voice range. The neck isn't very wide, so there is not a lot of excessive space between the string sets. I like the strings close together anyway, so that made it easier to play. The action is low like I prefer it. The wood - mahogany and maple - is beautifully finished. Schecter outdid themselves with this one as far as I'm concerned. I now have five bass guitars, all different. This 8-string rounds the collection perfectly and is just so darn pretty! It sounds even better than it looks. Another reviewer was spot on - pictures don't do it justice. Trimmed with gold colored hardware, it ranks right up there with high-precision pro-grade instruments. The price was very good and affordable, too. I got a lot of bang for my buck.

    when i saw the features that came with this price,my first thought was whats wrong with this bass? but the craftsmanship is spectacular. the emg active 3-band eq gives you more tonal options than you'll ever need (unlike those that come on other cheap basses), the wood working is flawless, and this bass is even sexier in person than a picture could ever show. only problem is not made in the u.s.

    I wanted a 5-string bass with a reasonably narrow neck and a tight, good sounding B string. The Studio 5 has all that, and more. All the hardware is top drawer. The EMG-HZ pickups sound great with no B-string volume drop off (due to 35" scale?). The active pick-up controls turn smothly with no noise and allow the player to dial in his/her desired sound, whatever that may be. The neck feels good and plays easily. The truss rod is easily adjusted, as is the bridge for height and intonation (VERY solid bridge). The action can be set pretty low without fret buzz. And, it's a very handsome bass. You can buy more expensive basses, but none significantly better, in my opinion anyway, regardless of where they are made.
