OVERVIEW

Big, punchy tone with five strings of range.

The Schecter Stiletto Stage-5 offers simple, useful controls paired with powerful bass tone to produce a hard-rocking axe with five strings of range. It features a mahogany body mounted to a thin-C three-piece maple neck with carbon fiber reinforcement rods, an ebony fretboard and 24 extra-jumbo frets. (Coolness point: the fretboard side makers glow in the dark so you can see them on stage.) The electronics consist of a pair of active Schecter Diamond SuperRock MM humbucker pickups controlled with master volume, blend and 3-band EQ.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Stage-5 5-String Electric Bass:

    The first one was defective, no sustain, different strings had different volumes, could not raise the bridge pickup and the G string had been replaced. Seems someone got a hold of this one and did a number. The replacement process was great. Called, free shipping back, a couple days processing and received tracking email the replacement had been shipped. The replacement was flawless. The action is super low, like playing a guitar, side markers are easily seen and are glow in the dark as well, sustain is crazy, massive tone options, the passive mode is exactly the same as active set flat. I would say with everything set flat, there's a slight bass boost. No honky mid bump or other problems. I think in the past, at least the guitar version, the Schecter Super Rock MM pickups were on the hot side. Thankfully these are not so you can crank your amp with ease and it's quiet too. The passive mode is dead quiet while the active has the normal slight noise when EQ is boosted. Nothing to be concerned about. I have passive Fender's etc.. that are noisy and this isn't even in active mode. I have a lot of basses and this is my favorite.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Stage-5 5-String Electric Bass:

        I bought this bass and within a few minutes of playing it I knew I was sending it back. I've played much cheaper basses that played better than this. The tuners were loose, the frets buzzed a lot even after adjusted the truss rod and raising the strings at the bridge, or at least the ones that I could raise. There is almost no variation with the sound even by turning all the controls to max/min. There was nothing about this bass I liked.
