Overall I gave this bass a 10 because everytime I go out to music stores to play different basses, I compare those to this bass. I am seriously thinking about buying the 4 string version of this bass just for kicks and giggles. They are just that great.
First off.. wow. Got this bass about 5 months ago, and its one of the best basses I have played through. I have played many basses including the famous Rickenbacker 4003.The tonal control on this bass is stunning. I play usually metal but if you want a funk sound, or a jazz sound, this bass can do that just as well. This bass has a really nice bottom end and a nice growl to it which I love. The neck is flawless. Very very fast neck. Not too bulky not too thin. The body shape is sexy. Its not bland like most Fender designs but nothing too fancy and rediculous like a B.C. Rich. This bass isn't neck heavy at all like a Rich either. I loved the strings it came with also. They weren't some crappy factory strings, they were Ernie Balls. Great sound and lasted me a while.
This bass is crafted like a high dollar bass. The picture doesn't even begin to tell the story of how greatly designed and crafted this bass is. It's made with the top of the line woods including Bubinga and Mahogany. I cherish this bass because I saved up for it, but I didn't have to rip my leg off to get it. This bass plays like a high priced bass, looks like one, and sounds like one. I have had endless compliments on sound, and looks.
Like I said before, this bass is my baby. I have sold a few of my instruments because of lack of assets, I will never let this bass go. Ever.

I just exchanged my Fender bass (Jazz Deluxe) for this bass about 5 months ago and I'm happy with this one, except when I got it there was a problem with the volume knob (the Pot was dirty),but Schecter solved that problem (2-weeks later). This bass feels so smooth, sounds and looks great and it's light weight too. Bottom line, you'll never go wrong choosing this bass for the price and quality. Now go get it !!!

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-5 Bass:

    What can I say that hasn't been said already, this bass is great. Unless you're looking for some specific vintage Fender tone you will not be disappointed. I've played basses that cost twice as much and weren't as enjoyable to play. String spacing is perfect, not too wide, not too narrow. Beautiful tone with lots of clarity and sustain for days.

    The black satin finish is gorgeous. If I had to nitpick on anything it's I wish the Schecter logo on the headstock was the same as on the Hellraiser, which I think looks cooler.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-5 Bass:

      We just booked studio in September. I bought this to bring some game. Uh.... and THEN SOME! Within five minutes of opening the box I knew that I will someday be buried with this axe. "Wow" is all I can say. There are about to be some lonely sticks in my arsenal, because I seriously doubt that I will ever put this bass down. Roll tape, track one!

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-5 Bass:

        This is a very good quality instrument. It is well built with great hardware and electronics. The see through black finish is absolutely beautiful. Looks grey in some light and slightly green in others. The visibility of the wood grain is awesome. The fretwork is very good for an instrument of this price range. Low action with no fret buzz right out of the box. It has a very growly, angry tone, but is also very bright, which may be due to the Ernie Ball strings loaded from the factory. I'm not a fan of Ernie Ball strings, so I will probably replace them soon with GHS. Just my preference. This is a high grade instrument at a mid range price.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-5 Bass:

          I ordered this bass w/o ever having a chance to play or lay my hands on it, strictly based on the many positive reviews here (See-Through Black Satin, although it looks more like a stealth fighter). Now I join the choir of praise. The bass is beautiful and high quality is immediately visible. It came with excellent strings (Ernie Ball). The sound is incredible, the low B is well sustained and gorgeous deep. The neck is easy to play. The slapping requires more accuracy, but it is still easy due to the string spacing. The EQ can be dialed in to many styles. Overall I could not be happier with this bass.

          Amazing Bass, Great price for a great looking guitar

          By 

          from Pennsylvania

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-5 Bass:

          This bass is unique for its vaule and price. Its a work of art and will amaze anyone that sees it.
          This bass has the standard 4 nob controls that most basses do. The option of changing the pickups is nice because you can go from a jazz sound to a lighter sound with more action. The emg pickups sound great and can have very diverse tones. Although this bass doesn't have the amount of features and controls as some fenders, it delivers on the ones it has.
          Needless to say this is a beutiful looking bass so when you have it people will ask if it was well over this price. The paint may wear off after years of use but I have had mine for over a year and a half and it still looks great. It has great action on the neck and you can move very quickly.
          As I said it look as if it is worth a lot. The craftsmenship is absolutley amazing for a bass of its price. It is hard to find a bass of this caliber for this price. The body it amazing and looks great because it is one solid peice of wood.

          What a Bass

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-5 Bass:

          This bass is really a steal at the price it markets for. I have had mine for about 4 years now and it is a workhorse with a brilliant tone. Plenty of onboard eq options , high quality pickups , a solid bridge , excellent hardware , and supreme finish. The Stilleto shape is unique but not wierd or quirky. I have received many compliments on the sound of this bass. I want a musicman and another fender but I will never let go of this bass. Hopefully more people will discover what a fantastic instrument Schecter produces.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Studio-5 Bass:

          I have owned this bass for almost 2 1/2 years. It has never let me down once! Very solid feel. The action is excellent. When I first got it, the strings were slightly closer together than what I was use to. However, now I love how close together they are. It has excellent tone and really goes BOOM! Good for both live and in the studio.
