I originally purchased this bass the last time it was on sale, I was actually looking for the Deluxe Model but it was not available. I've been playing a Fender Precision since 1963 and a Fender Jazz since 1995. Both wonderful instruments. I first tried out a friends Schecter at some jams and liked the growl I was able to get from it. I had been using a Yamaha as a backup bass, but it was my daughters and I gave it back to her when she was discharged from the service. I was seeking a back up bass for stage and rehearsal use, something a few cuts above the Squiers I started using for this purpose. My jazz was my main bass and I no longer take the 62 Precision out of the house -it's too valuable. I must say, I love this bass. The sound is stupendous . I currently play in a 60's band and also in a country band. I like a big fat bottom tone and what I get was far beyond my expectations, and certainly had more oomph than my Jazz. The bass is well finished and beautiful to look at. Mine is a see through Red. The weight and balance of the bass is very good. The neck is superb. People come up to ask me about it and always comment house great it sounds - and I've used everything from a 1000 watt Carvin Rig to a 50 Watt Laney and numerous in-between amps. This bass sounds great with every amp. It has become my MAIN bass. I would recommend this to others in fact urge you to consider it. You will not be disappointed. I've yet to meet a Schecter bass owner who isn't very happy with their instrument. I even like how it sounds more than my Jazz. Get this bass, you won't regret it.

I bought this bass expecting a really punchy tone for slapping some funky deathfunk! But, when I unboxed this beast, the tone was EXTREMEly creamy. Now I know why it's called extreme. They should have specified it so hard working Americans like myself will not waste our money on creamy tones. Another problem I found is that the bridge description said "diamond bass." What in the world does that mean? It was just a hunk of junk. I wanted real diamond. And it wasn't shaped like a bass. What were they thinking?Now let's get on to the body. There is something seriously wrong with the knobs. I plugged in and played but I had to adjust the tone. When I grabbed for the knobs it was just a 3D hologram instead of a knob! I think the vector inlays have something to do with that but I don't even know.Overall, this bass is crazy. Really crusty. Only buy it if you are planning to take the pickups out and put tin foil ones in their place. The tone might get really funky for some slapping instead of that cellogrind cream.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Extreme-4 Bass:

        I bought this at a pawn shop for a bass in the studio. It's turned into my go to bass. I have several other bases including an American P-Bass. The Schecter is the one I've been using almost exclusive since the day I got it. I may have been very lucky to get a pro quality bass on the cheap. No fret buzz and I do like the active electronics. I replaced the battery with a lithium so it'll last longer because it is a pain to take off the backplate just to change a battery. I still have no complaints.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Extreme-4 Bass:

          I'll begin by saying this is my first bass. But I own many acoustic and electric guitars so I understand and appreciate a high-quality instrument. And this Schecter sure does hit the spot. Let alone a great price and value.

          The fit and finish are excellent. Hard to describe the Black Cherry finish other than, awesome! I love the look and feel of this bass. Inlays are way cool too. Oh and the sound... yeah, it delivers the room shaking thuds plus beautiful deep thru higher tones. A very full sound range.

          Overall I could not be happier with this purchase. And as usual, MF came through with a super coupon. Thanks MF!!

              The strings that it came with were tinny sounding(Ernie Ball)I replaced them with a heavier gauge Fender, which produced a rich deep sound, which is why you have a bass guitar in a band.

                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.

                  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!
