Schecter Stiletto Elite-5
Purchased from Guitar Center. They matched the lowest price I could find on the internet at ZZSounds for an "out the door" price of $599.95.

There are four characteristics of this bass that make it stand out from others I have played. First, it is a neck-through design, usually only found in high-end models, or at leat models starting several hundred dollars above this. This allows easier access to high notes on the fret board, without needing to reach around a bulky bolt-on neck. The second is the binding on the neck. Schecter calls this a "creme" binding that transitions the maple neck to the rosewood finger board. This makes the termination of the frets at the edge of the finger board smooth with a high quality feel and finish. Third, the finish on this is great. I have the "honey sunburst" which should be called "orange". The flame maple top is a $200 option at Carvin. Finally, I like the longer, 35 inch scale which makes the action a little softer and easier to play without buzz. It seems to be very forgiving.

My only dislike is that the strings are a little crowded. I think that with more playing time, this will actually be a benefit in the long run.

Construction and quality seem to be top-notch. Time will tell.

I've only had this bass for one week, but I don't see ever selling it. This will be the only five string fretted bass in my arsenal.

Schecter Stiletto Elite-5
Purchased it from American Musical Supply when i was looking for a new Bass in the internet, paid $599.00.

This Bass is a killer deal. It looks beautiful, plays like a dream, you can put any sound you want from this bass. Most important: a very low action and slim neck. i've been playing for about 15 years diffrent kind of styles, from rock to tropical music like salsa. I have have played diffrent basses. fender, lakland, mtd, warwick, and the schecter elite compites with all of them, the diference is that you only paid $600 for a Bass that looks ans sounds like a $1500 plus bass.

Just love the Schecter Stilleto Elite, there nothing i dislike from the Bass.

Very Well made, Mahogany, Quilted Mapple Top "AAA" grade", awasome finishes, very low action and slim neck. simply Awasome.

i'm amazed by the quality of his instrument, seems like Schecter really knows what a real bass is. I recommend this bass to anyone.
