Product Description

The Stiletto Studio Series Basses are hands down Schecter's most popular basses. Combining Euro-High Tech looks and upper-register playability, the Stiletto Studio 5 is the perfect match for many styles of playing! This 5-string model is 35 inch scale, which yields an extremely tight Low B . These neck-thru beauties have an exotic Bubinga top, finished in a Natural Honey Satin finish. The Studio 5 is armed with EMG HZ pickups, and adds a mid-control on the 3-Band EQ (EMG active 18-volt EQ circuit with bass, middle and treble frequency with 12db cut-boost controls). Other features include Schecter tuners and 24 frets. AmericanMusical is an authorized dealer of Schecter products.

I gig occasionally and have a full time day job, so I guess I'm a semi-pro musician. I'm 60 years old and have been playing music since junior high. I played guitar until I switched to bass about 14 years ago. I've owned 3 Fenders, a Squire 5-string, a Steinberger style Hohner, and this bass. All except the Squire were 4-string basses.
I liked the sound of the 5-string Squire, but didn't like the loose, floppy B-string. I wanted a longer scale bass to tighten the B-string up and was originally considering the Carvin XB75. Howevery,by the time I configured the Carvin like I wanted, I couldn't afford it. So, I was stuck.
I was browsing my local Guitar Center and stumbled upon this bass. The 35" scale really tightened up the B-string. I liked the way it felt in my hands and on my shoulder (with a 3" wide strap). The neck is relatively thin and narrow for a 5-string bass with easy access to the 24th fret. The EMG pickups sound great and the tone (bass, mid, high) and volume controls (one for each pickup) allow for a lot of different tone variations. I've gotten numerous compliments on how pretty this bass is.
I've tried a number of different strings and have finally settled on DR MR5-130s (nice tight B-string, and great sound). The intonation and string height of this bass is difficult (trial and error) to set because of the bridge design, but once it's set, you're done. This bass is very stable and only occasionally needs to have the truss rod adjusted (due to changes in humidity).
I play mostly classic rock but sometimes play some jazz and country. I REALLY like to play this bass. It handles well, sounds good, and looks good. The hardware is very good quality. Even thought it's time-consuming to adjust, the bridge is rock solid.

I'm primarily a rhythm guitar player at church, but fill in on bass when needed. I borrowed basses prior to buying this one and have played several different models. That said, this is the second best bass I have ever played coming in right behind a modded Peavey Millenium 5ver that was old and USA made.

The Pros:
This thing thunders! The B-string is tight and has great resonance and/or punch depending on your tone selection. The dual active humbuckers take 2 9 volts to power them and they have a decent range to them. They are EMG pickups, so they have their own sound. When I can afford it, I will likely replace those with some hotter Seymour Duncan HBs. The EQ on the guitar has fantastic range and three bands. There is a knob for bass, mids, and treble. All knobs are nice heavy textured brass looking things with a detent so you can tell where "unity" is. The volume knob lacks the detent, but who would want that? The finish has no hard coating which I count as a pro. I believe this allows the wood to resonate more than if you lacquered it up. Some folks think this is a con because it is definitely easier to damage the instrument. Lastly, the instrument is simply gorgeous. The woods are beautiful, and the neck-thru construction is striking.

The Cons:
Good Lord this thing is HEAVY! I usually gig for no more than an hour and it's not pleasant afterwards. I know I know, this is why it sounds so good, I just needed something to whine about. Truly if I have to give it any cons I would say maybe adding a string-thru bridge vs the hardtail MIGHT increase sustain. I say might because this instrument seems to be able to hold any note for well over a minute as is. The pickups don't really "pop" when you slap it, but that's EMGs IMHO.

This is a fine instrument for the money. Action is low and clean. Very playable for people with average-size hands. Tonal flexibility is decent. Upper registers play well and sound in tune. It has a middle-of-road sound, not Precision vs. Jazz extremes. Tuning gears are good quality and hold their settings very well. The instrument is attractive with an oil-like matte finish, very pretty.

This is the PERFECT bass guitar. I recently switched to this from a Fender P bass and have not wanted to go back. The soap-box pickups are premium, without a problem and sound like heaven. The fretboard is smooth beautiful and plays quickly. To keep the scale down the frets on this bass are somewhat smaller, but that also helps and makes it easier to play. And improves accuracy. This bass really does play faster than any other bass I have played. The only downside is that the pickups are active and require a battery. However, I play heavily and don't barely have to worry about changing the battery. Its an awesome bass and 100% worth the price.

I own this sweetheart. And I have heard nothing but RAVES about it. Not only is it simply beautiful, the techs that I work with have even gone so far as to say it's better than a Carvin bass costing twice as much....(And these guys are PICKY!!!) AND my music store pals have told me that these have been back ordered since,I think,November or December. The demand for them is so great. So there MUST be SOMETHING about them that people are lovin. I would say that you can't go wrong with this rig.. (I've played a 6-string as well.......TOO SWEET)
