Vintage vibe and tonal options galore!

The Stargazer 5's classic body shape gives it a distinctly vintage air, but its electronics deliver a wealth of tones from across decades and genres. EMG MMHZ and SJHZ pickups with a push/pull master volume control give you both single-coil and humbucker sounds. Along with a Master Blend knob and active 2-band EQ, you'll never run out of tones to play with!

Stability and resonance come courtesy of a Schecter Custom string-thru-body bridge, and Schecter tuners ensure you're on pitch. Mother-of-pearl block inlays, white binding, and 2-piece pickguard round out the Stargazer 5's classic styling.

Obviously resembles a 4003. Well built, good sound, was well Set up. Just got one from right here. No tags ect. Also BEWARE!!!! There is NO coil tapping feature on this bass as it states. Does not have a push/pull pot. Is in full humbucker mode which is no big deal to me.

it is a schecter, so it means even though it is an import they actualy pay attention to detail. the sound is great,the finish awsome, the set up needs a little work. the sound is nice and fat, with crisp bottom end with nice not over the top highs. Also the older models do not come with the coil tap as do the new ones.


Very versatile perfect tone

This bass sounds like a rickenbacker 4003 but a little bit warmer and a low B string grafted on. It is dynamic, and has a very vivid and colorful but not too warm or bright tone. Sounds great with daddario chromes.This bass can play most genres of music well, the B string does not sound too flabby. The string thru bridge and 35 inch scale both help to eliminate this flabbyness. The pickups are high quality, and the bridge and tuners are above average quality. The frets are placed with precision, one good adjustment to the intonation was all I needed to get the pitch perfect on all the frets. The neck has a nitrocellulose finish, the inlay and pickguards are mother of pearl.The screws on the pickups needed adjustment because the foam underneath must have contracted. One of the knobs must have fell off during shipping, I will probably get schecter to send a replacent with its lifetime warranty.I contacted Schecter and they said they are discontinuing this product as of the beginning of 2011.

This bass is beautiful. I just recieved it and I love it. The string-thru bridge is a bonus that I didn't know about when I bought it. The Color of the bass is even more magnificent than it appears in the pictures. The pickups sound great (to be expected from EMG) and someone said it doesnt have a push/pull knob but mine most definately does.


5 string heaven

By Pope-2U4Hk

This 5 string bass the Shecter Stargazer (Crimson Ghost)is absolutely amazing. I have had problems with the B string being loose and floppy on other models. This paticular instrument doesn't have that problem. Doesn't fret out anywhere on the neck. the neck is comfortable and fast. one feature that stands out is the blending knob that blends the two pick ups..after you work with it for a little bit, you can get ANY sound you want how awesome is that! The picture doesn't do this bass justice..absolutely beautiful..weight is about 37 lbs. i like heavy basses though might be a problem for some. action is set low and was ready to go right out of the box upon arrival. Do your self a favor and get this bass..another great thing you can do with the blending knob is if you play with a pick the blending knob can make it sound like you are playing with your fingers. pretty cool if you ask me. BUY IT!!
