The Stiletto Studio-5 features a maple top with a gorgeous transparent purple burst finish, neck-thru construction for superior sustain, and EMG active pickups to handle any musical situation. Rock-solid lows, punchy mids, and crisp highs—this Schecter bass has it all. Musicians seeking a reliable, flexible bass that makes a visual statement need look no further than the Schecter Stiletto Studio-5.

Neck-Thru Design Provides Exceptional Sustain

The Stiletto Studio-5's neck-thru design, with mahogany wings anchored to a 5-piece maple and walnut neck, produces deep, resonant tones and sustain for days. The 34" scale length keeps the low B tight and focused, while 24 jumbo frets provide ample room for expressive, melodic playing higher up the neck. A fast, thin C-shaped profile makes navigating the 20-fret ebony fingerboard a breeze.

EMG Active Pickups Deliver Versatile Tone

Dual EMG 40DCX active pickups, controlled by a 3-band active EQ, yield massive versatility. The neck pickup provides a warm, round tone perfect for fingerstyle and jazz, while the bridge pickup delivers an aggressive growl suited to rock and slap styles. With the ability to scoop mids, boost bass, and add top-end sizzle, you can craft your perfect tone for any genre.

Premium Components and Construction

From the contoured mahogany body to the black-on-black hardware, the Stiletto Studio-5 exudes a premium, professional-grade feel. Grover tuners keep each of the 5 strings locked in tune through the most punishing practices and performances. The sleek control layout, with volume, pickup blend, bass, mid, and treble controls, provides intuitive tone shaping on the fly.

A Showstopper, Inside and Out

Commanding looks meet exceptional build quality and tone in the Schecter Stiletto Studio-5. The transparent purple burst finish, with its deep purple edges fading into a vibrant maple top, is guaranteed to turn heads. Beneath the jaw-dropping esthetics lies a bass ready to handle any musical task with power and finesse. For players seeking to make a visual and aural statement, the Stiletto Studio-5 delivers in spades.
