The Schecter Stiletto Stage-5 offers simple, useful controls paired with powerful bass tone to produce a hard-rocking axe with five strings of range. It features a mahogany body mounted to a thin-C three-piece maple neck with carbon fiber reinforcement rods, an ebony fretboard and 24 extra-jumbo frets. (Coolness point: the fretboard side makers glow in the dark so you can see them on stage.) The electronics consist of a pair of active Schecter Diamond SuperRock MM humbucker pickups controlled with master volume, blend and 3-band EQ.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Stage-5 5-String Electric Bass:
I've been playing for 10 years. But this is my first real foray into 5 string. Out of the box she's a beauty. Perfectly set up then all strings tuned down a half step exactly. To lessen neck stress while in transit I'd guess.I let it sit for 24 hr.s to let it acclimate then tuned it up to BEAD Sting height, intonation all spot on. Zero fret buzz. Great pup and the three band eq allows for terrific amount of tone shaping. Funk to punk, rock to jazz and all points in between. It's all good. I found when looking at 5-string basses that for my hand nothing other than a much much more costly Ibanez felt as good. The thing that closed it for me was prior ownership (and sellers remorse) of a Schecter Stargazer. This Stiletto Stage 5 has better balance of the two. Overall I'm thrilled to ad this to the herd.
Service and delivery comments:
The guys at my Asheville GC stepped up big time. I'd had a couple of serious problems there in the past year. They went out of their way to make sure that after I picked out what I wanted, they gave me a GREAT deal on price. I hope all the stores service is this good.
Since I wanted it in black it was shipped to my home. I bought on the weekend and in less than 4 days and it was in my hands.
