      I couldn't be happier with my Schecter active bass. Since (in bands) I'm a guitarist/frontman, I didn't have one 'signature sound' I needed in a bass. Therefore I don't have any ideal against which to rate this bass' sound. I've heard (and sometimes played) everybody else's bass, though, and this one manages to measure up to (and in some respects exceed) most 'high-quality' basses I've seen/heard/played. I've been playing this direct to a PA channel, but it sounds so good that I'm looking at a little Acoustic 100w combo for it. If you want to buy a bass worth about $1,000 more than you pay for it, this is the best you can do. Don't get the red one, though; I want mine to look better than yours.
      I'm a guitar player, and this is the first time I've felt like having a bass of my own (my scheme was to have a 'house bass' available when people come over to jam...). This is such a great instrument (despite its modest price) that I'm going to rate it against the same criteria I would for higher-priced, quality instruments....
      GOOD FEATURES:
      24 fret full-scale neck/board
      Beautiful flamed maple top (I took the black cherry 'black-burst')
      Silent active P/U system (vol, pan, hi boost/cut, lo boost/cut)
      Lightweight and small, with excellent balance standing or seated
      rock-solid 6-bolt neck/body joint
      VERY good work on the weird inlays (they incorporate 'mother-of-pearl' AND abalone[!],and are very closely cut/routed; I can't see ANY filler anywhere....)
      BAD FEATURES:
      6 screws to get to the battery
      Plastic nut
      It gets an '8' on 'Features'; a '10' would be a neck-through, and a '9' would not have the 2 'bad features' noted above.
      You shouldn't be able to buy a bass that plays, sounds, and looks this good for this price--so spend another $100 on the case, too; you'll want to keep this bass in good shape. All I can say about Made in Indonesia Quality is: the woodwork, inlay job, and finish are all top-of-the-line. It's sturdy, well-assembled, and it has an enormous palette of tones (wherEVER you set the knobs it has a useable-somewhere sound). Except for the plastic nut, this bass has the overall quality of one that cost at least $1000 more....
      See 'Quality' above. I never expected this great of a bass for the price. It's no Carvin or Alembic, but it outplays, outsounds, and outlooks your Jazz, Precision, or T-bird.

      This bass amazes me everytime i pick it up. its incredibly light and the neck is super thin and fast, the inlays make it more unique and look beautiful in my opinion along with the cherry finish it will get peoples attention at any gig you play! the active 3 band EQ makes it SILENT...atleast for me it is when plugged into an active port on my bass rig it also sounds super clear and punchy and is really versatile. i would recommend this bass to anyone looking for and affordable workhorse that works great live and in the studio.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Extreme-4 Bass:

        I have two other basses, a Ventura and a Ibanez. Love them both, especially the Ibanez because of the raw sound it has. I wanted a bass that I could use anywhere and had a deep, but clear sound, that's when I ran into the Schecter Stilleto Extreme-4 Bass. This bass has everything you need, the sound, the black cherry color, the electronics, the body shape, and the right weight. It is just beautiful to look at! I use Slinkys for a 5 string bass on mine. The guitar tech at Guitar Center had to groove it out a little for the thicker strings. I use the 130, 100, 80, and 45, to get the real deep sound, especially when you're downtuned. Awesome sound. This bass can be used anywhere, I highly recommend it and I would not go anywhere without it. I still take my Ibanez with me, just in case, and I have it setup the same exact way with the strings. Try it, especially if you downtune, you'll love the sound and the Schecter carries it all the way through!!

          Great bass! This thing plays even better than it looks! Fast neck, comfortable feel, perfect for just about any playing style or music genre. I used it to record the bass tracks on my professionally produced record, playing shows and just jammin' out and it has never failed. If you are a novice or experienced musician buy this bass! The price is just too good to pass up for the quality of this guitar. Grab the case as well, they look awesome together.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Extreme-4 Bass:

          Amazing! If you're a bigger person, tall or wide, the bass is small but the sound it larger than life! You wont be disappointed!
          This bass blew me away when I went into my local music store to pick it up. I opened the case and will not be looking back! The finish is 100% Beautiful! The cherry finish was pictuere perfect and pictures dont do it justice. The feel of the bass is so comfortable.
          The stock pick-ups are Schecter versions of EMGs, so they are naturally not going to be the same. I was thinking about upgrading the pick-ups before puchasing the bass, but now I dont think it would worth the time or money... At least for right now. Overall the bass is beyond what I had expected and Im proud to say, Schecter will be on my list for a long time!

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Extreme-4 Bass:

          Overall ...Good product.
          For the price ,you can't beat it. Easy to play ,the action is low smooth and is extremely light.
          I have had this bass for a year now and still love it.I been playing for 25 years on Music man
          G&L bases and it keeps up with them.It has 2 Volume pods one for each pickup ,one Mix pod
          and one Tone control pod that kicks the low end.Three of the tone pods have a home position that
          make it easy find a setting.
          The quality can very from one guitar to a another but in general not bad.
          Better to pick one up at the store if want to look a the finish and so on.
          I also have a Shecter C1 plus guitar with amazing looks and action, but again
          I had to hand pick it.
          Like I said ,for the value , you will be very well pleased .........

          Great Bass

          By Robert Bayless

          from Davison Michigan

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Extreme-4 Bass:

          I am a musician that dapples in all instruments, I am mainly a guitarist/vocalist but broaden my range in drums and bass while playing guitar. I play bass in my buddy's band and my first bass guitar was a squier jazz bass, great bass but after 6 years of having it I wanted something more intermediate, something less harder to play, like my bassist in my old band he owned a schecterstiletto custom and I loved it, It was my ideal bass that I wanted then came around the stiletto 4 extreme series, I was shocked to know that they made an extreme version for 200 dollars less. Overall great bass, the active pickups sound stellar, body slightly small but has a great feel, neck is very smooth with nice vector inlays to make her stick out from other basses, If you want the feel of a great bass I highly recommend schecter, stellar quality basses without the ridiculous price tag. Bar None!

          Afordability, Playability, and Workability make this a GREAT BASS!

          By Jason Bolstad

          from Hattiesburg, Mississippi

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Extreme-4 Bass:

          It all depends on what your looking for as well. If your unsure about getting this Bass I would go to a Schecter dealer and try a few out similar to this to see what you really like. If you think that you can handle a larger scale instrument then go ahead in that direction. Overall though this Schecter Bass Guitar will give you the tools you need to make some beautiful music.
          I usually go for a 35" inch long body for a bass, but this Schecter really caught my eye with its design. The Black Cherry look to the Bass is really hot. I get a lot of attention whenever i play this at my gigs. Schecter's pickups have been really impressive so far. Response that i get from these are extremely clear and can be tweaked to the way you want the sound to go. Having the volume, 1 blend, and 2 active band EQ really helps you go the extra mile for shaping the sound. Also one more thing about the features is the 24 Jumbo Frets...I have big fingers so this was another highlight that sold me on this particular bass.
          Its a really sturdy bass guitar from what i can tell. I prefer a solid body for a bass guitar. Gives the bass a punchier sound I feel. If it were a hollow body I wouldn't be getting the sound that I get now with it. I can do slapping with a combination of pull offs with ease on this thing and still be able to keep quality sound without it being distorted. As I've seen in a previous post as well there is no feedback with this thing, but i got a fairly sturdy anti-feedback cable to minimize that even more. Doesn't hurt to have backups with anything you buy. Never know what the Electronics Quality is going to be at the Gig place your playing at so it would be good to have your Bass Rig plugged into a surge protector. The Electronics in this Bass are top notch and you definitely want to protect that.
          Value of this Bass is fairly decent. I'm surprised this guitar is at this price to be honest cause it performs so well in my opinion. This is a great purchase for getting up there in the intermediate or advanced playing. Plus it going to last you a long time with its hearty contruction. I got the special case to go with this instrument to make sure it was going to keep it safe where ever I travel. Not many Bass Guitars out there will have the looks and sounds of a professional Bass like this one for the kind of price that it is being sold for here. Would highly recommend getting this Bass.

          By KTSquire

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Extreme-4 Bass:

          First bass I started on was a hand-me-down starter bass and even though I was excited to learn bass, I hated that bass so much. So when I looked into finally buying one for myself, I came across this beautiful piece of work. I was skeptical at the time because my mind was set on another kind but I buttoned up and bough the 24-fret. As soon as I got it, it was love at first sight. The auqa finish was amazing and the sound, perfect. Not even playing a year and I was able to pick this bass up and just go. I will never regret the purchase. I highly reoccomend this bass - espeically for it's price. the 24-frets makes it extremely easy to grasp for those with smaller hands - like me. And the tone is so easy to adjust.If you're thinking about buying it, do it. You won't regret it.

          I purchased the Trans-Ocean Blue 4 string Stiletto Bass and also the Schecter Stiletto hard shell case. This bass plays wonderfully and is of top notch quality. How do they keep the price so low?!
