i bought a Schecter Stiletto Studio-4 for my eighteen year old son,hoping to upgrade from the tonal limitations of his legendary Fender P Bass.when we had our first look at it, we were both stunned at how aesthetically pleasing the instrument is. The high quality satin gold hardware perfectly compliments the extremely well crafted and warm color of the mahogany. This instrument is a true looker-its beautiful and classy.Fit and finish are flawless. When he finally plugged in and started playing through his Ampeg amp, also purchased at Guitar Center,it was amazing to find that the instrument sounds even better than it looks.This bass immediately impressed with its remarkable tonal color, quality and versatility.Its also remarkably light and comfortable to play. The 24 fret,pleasingly thin neck is built for speed.When he started hybrid picking, slapping out funk lines, the sharpness and sweetness of its mid and high range matched its low end thunder. The EMG pickups and the 3 band EQ combine for a level of sound quality that exceeded even my high expectations. Just buy it- you wont be able to put it down, or stop looking at its killer good looks. More than complete customer satisfaction is all i can say about this Schecter Studio4 Bass.

Reading all of the glowing reviews for this bass I decided to buy it. The appearance is nice, but I can't say the sound matches its visual appeal. New out of the box there is a dent on the thumb side of the 5th fret. Oddly enough, the fingerboard at the 5th fret is missing the finish that was applied to the rest of the fingerboard. There are particles in the finish on the back of the neck where it joins the body that annoy my thumb. FEATURES: After playing it for a few days I'm struggling to get any good tones out of it using the EQ and different effects. Finger plucking seems to be what this bass was designed for. The rear strap button is well placed. The position of the input jack takes some getting used to. The bridge seems overly complicated to adjust. The neck is adjusted for flat tension that causes a lot of fret buzz. QUALITY & RELIABILITY: The construction feels well made while the hardware feels cheap. The truss rod cover vibrates when playing an open A because there's only one screw holding it in place. LOOK & FEEL: The overall appearance is okay, and the overall feel is a bit toy-like. The satin finish on the hardware detracts from it looking great. It feels slightly on the heavy side, but it's well balanced whether seated or standing. The finish is very smooth feeling. The leg rest is well rounded and feels comfortable on the thigh. Compared to an Ibanez SR600 I would say it falls short of the mark. Unless you really want a neck-thru in this price range I would suggest looking for a different bass.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-4 Bass:

    So I bought this exact guitar from GC around four years ago. I returned it, because at the time, I was a poor student and couldn't justify how expensive it was. Fast forward four years, and I have always missed playing it. Nothing else at the store seemed to even compare. So as a graduation present to myself, I splurged and bought it again. Surprisingly, it's actually almost 50% more expensive than it was four years ago. I'm not sure how that happens, but the thing is: it was worth it. It is just a beautiful, wonderful bass all around. I absolutely love the versatility and the sound. I most particularly love how even when playing without an amp, I can feel every note resonating throughout the whole instrument. That is a wonderful feeling.

    The only thing I consider a con is really insignificant: I just don't prefer the strings they put on it by default. They're more rough in my hands than I'm used to, so even though I play normally on other basses, moving to this one was a bit painful. That's the only complaint I have though, and it's... Definitely not a reason to not buy the bass.

    Best bass I've ever played or owned

    By Tomas Callan

    from Portland, ME

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-4 Bass:

    I usually don't write reviews, but I had to make an exception for this bass. The Schecter Studio 4 is by far the best bass I've ever had the pleasure of owning. There's nothing about this bass that isn't absolutely amazing. The warmness of it and the ease of play is unlike anything I've ever experienced. Whatever sound I'm looking to achieve, I seem to be able to get it out of the bass without any trouble. It just feels right. And as if the sound and playability wasn't enough, the bass in honey satin is probably the sexiest instrument I've ever seen and will have everyone else drooling over it, and jealous that they aren't able to play this beauty. Bottom line is that I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

    Not what I expected

    By thomas ellis

    from Alexandria, VA

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-4 Bass:

    After reading the glowing reviews for this bass I decided to place an order for one. Unfortunately, I returned it about a week after it arrived. The short of it is that it feels like a toy. I've heard similar descriptions from other people who also played this bass. They said the Omen model is a better choice if you're into Schecters. Features: I found this bass to be built for a finger style of playing only. I wasn't able to dial in a tone that I liked. The input jack is in an odd spot. The rear strap button is well placed, and it makes me want to relocate them on my other basses. Quality & Reliability: Overall this bass feels somewhat cheap. The 5th fret was missing the fret board finish that was applied to the other 23 frets. The truss rod cover is secured with a single screw that causes it to buzz when the strings vibrate. The tuners work fine. The knobs have a grinding feel when turning them. The back of the neck that meets the body has particles in the finish that were annoying to my thumb. Look & Feel: The overall look is impressive from a distance, and it looks great in pictures, but that doesn't stay true when viewed up close. The finish is silky smooth and feels good. It is balanced well for standing or seated playing. In my opinion there are much better basses within this price range.

    A lot for a little - a great bass guitar

    By Kelly Krull

    from Memphis, TN

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-4 Bass:

    I've been playing a Fender Jazz Bass and a Gibson SG Bass for a while now. They are both from different ends of the spectrum in tonality as well as playability. The Fender has a smooth, well rounded tone and full scale length, while the Gibson has a short scale length with active pickups that deliver a punchy grunt that sounds great distorted. Both are quality instruments that deliver what I expect and what I want out of them. All of this to get to my point about the Schecter Stiletto Studio 4 Bass - it easily covers both ends of the tonal spectrum, and everything in between. I can dial in just about any sound I want with the 3-band tone circuitry. The neck is smooth, fast and easy to get around. The build and finish are truly impressive. There were no flaws in the amazingly smooth satin-finished neck and body, something I can't say for my other basses. In fact, this is the first bass I've ever played that was such a pleasure just to hold and touch - well balanced, light weight, with a perfect fit to my form. That's a lot of guitar for the low price Schecter requires (something else I can't say for the other two). The only thing I didn't like, and this is a personal preference, were the Ernie Ball strings - they're a little too bright and "chimey" for me. I replaced them with Rotosound SH77 flatwounds for the tone and playability I prefer, and now I can't put this bass down. My next decision is whether to sell the Fender and Gibson, or just keep them around because they look good...

    just buy it now, save yourself the wait.

    By Bryan

    from North Reading MA

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-4 Bass:

    This is my favorite bass ever, I go to gc and play the high end musicmans and fenders, and my schecter beats all of them. Schecter truelly cares about their guitars, mine came fully setup, and still in tune. The fact that it was still in tune when I first picked it up out of the box still amazes me today. It has everything I want in a bass, and I plan on never getting rid of this bass.

    absolutly terriffic, save a few mistakes

    By BEN

    from Rockville MD

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-4 Bass:

    I bought this bass a month ago, and i instantly fell in love with it. Not even porfessionally set-up yet, it was still in tune, and with great action and everything. The only problem i had with mine was one of the knobs was broken, but an easy fix. I quickly changed the strings to rotosounds, and when i slap, it sounds fantastic. The soap bars make great thumbrests and also have great tone. Except for the knobs and the dinky strings, this instrument is a work of art, a masterpiece. I plan on playing this bass for a very, very long time. i am very satisfied.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-4 Bass:

    This may be the best bass I have ever played. The sound is incredible. Very crisp, out standing. I have only played my freinds, but I'm currently in the market for a new bass, and this is number one on my list. Buying this bass will not be a mistake.
