Amazing bass sound and comfort!

By Jordan Owens

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Elite-5 Bass Guitar 2008:

I have been playing bass for about 3 years now and this bass is so awesome I just have to write this review! I love how the sweet spot is conveniently close to the body and neck is comfortable. The tone is just as great because of the passive pickups and active EQ. Amazing bass and really awesome!

Schecter stiletto Elite 5!!!

By Boss Beats

from College Station, Texas

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Elite-5 Bass Guitar 2008:

I have been playing this bass for about four months now and I have to say it is the best bass i have played yet. Warwick, Ibanez, LTD, Squire, fender etc. this bass blows them away! The preamp on this allows you to shape the sound to make "YOUR" sound. I did have to raise the action a bit on the lowest string to keep from fret buzz but that was simple. The sustain on this baby is awesome and still has the punch from a bolt on neck as well. Given the right set upthis thing will keep people's eyes on you. I always get complmients when I pull the bass out of its case. All in all this bass will get the job done and make you look good doing it.

outstanding value

By J.C. Johnson

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Elite-5 Bass Guitar 2008:

About three years ago,while playing a gig in West Palm Beach Fl. Between sets, someone made off with my guitar players late seventies Telecaster,that was two feet away from my mid sixties Thunderbird.Needless to say the T-Bird hasn't seen the public eye much after that day. Soon after I purchaced a Schecter C4XXX four string to play at gigs with.The fit,feel and sound of the C4 rivaled that of basses of well over twice the cost. Fast foward the clock a few years. After borrowing a buddy's Warwick 5-string for a couple of weeks, I went to Guitar Center fully intent to come home with a Warwick 5, however, on the wall next to the Warwick was a Schecter Stilleto Elite 5.With my past experience with my C4, I gave it a go. After playing it for nearly a hour and a half, I was very impressed by the sound and playability of it. After a week of much self debate, I purchaced the Schecter and have no regrets. The EQ allows me dial in any sound I've needed and the punch of the EMG's is fantastic. In the future I will likely tweak the electronics a bit. The only beef I have is very minor and cosmetic. The pickup recess into the body is a little rough but only noticable up close. In the end,I would challenge anyone to find an equal value bass anywhere near the Elete 5's price range.

NICE BASS!!!

By Jordan Owens

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Elite-5 Bass Guitar 2008:

I got this bass for christmas and I've loved it ever since. This bass has EMG dual humbucking pick-ups so it has a great sound! Another good feature is the bridge because it's designed to make your strings sound even better than they would normally sound. This is the best bass iI have ever owned and I hope it will be yours too.

I recommend it !

By Ken Burns

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Elite-5 Bass Guitar 2008:

I have been playing for 30 years and most of that time was on a '76 Precision. I bought a 4 string Ibanez in '07 for a change and just recently bought the Schector Elite. I was impressed by the feel and tone of this guitar. I went to purchase a Fender Jazz 5 string but after playing this guitar,it played better.There are probably better guitars out there,certainly more expensive,but this guitar fit my personal taste and budget. I recommend it.

Amazing bass

By Wes

from Colorado

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Elite-5 Bass Guitar 2008:

I got this bass last Christmas and i was completely blown away. This was a step up from my horrible warped starter-pak squire. The blend knob on the bass was a little dirty, a little spray took care of that. I love the wood on this bass, it looks awesome and the neck is surprisingly strait for Coloradan climate. The EMGhz pickups are amazing and the tone control is really powerful so you can get a very unique sound. I also still have the battery it came with. An amazing bass for the price compared to a lot of other brands like Warwick and Music man. I hope i never have to buy another bass for a long time.

Awesome bass

By victor wooten

from houston

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Elite-5 Bass Guitar 2008:

Man, i bought this bass on Thanksgiving and i've been playing it without missing a single day. I like it and it sounds the way i like it to be. The only thing is, i wish it was a passive bass. I guess it's just me that i don't like the idea of changing the battery and all that kindda stuff. But overall, it's a great bass!!

AWESOME BASS

By James

from Mississippi

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Elite-5 Bass Guitar 2008:

Had this bass for about a week, and I love the sound quality. I've been playing for about 3 years, and this is my first good quality bass. The emg's have a hard hitting punch that I had never experienced in any other basses I had played. Love the flamed maple top and the awesome amber finish. I can't say I've ever seen a better deal on a bass of this quality.
