Good tidings and greetings everybody,
I recently purchased a Schecter Stiletto Studio 5 as I'm playing more music which requires the low B. I really liked the way this bass sounded originally, but I'm finding it's just not growly or throaty enough for my current interests (melodic post-hardcore). It's got a singing, sweet, warbling tone that would really fit in with a more mellow setting, like a pit band, jazz trio, or light rock.
I'm a big fan of this bass' looks and playability. The construction quality is amazing for the pricepoint. It's heads and tails above a Lakland 55-01 and other sub-$1000 "boutique-style" basses. This particular specimen is in great condition. The electronics cavity has some light scratches which could be improved with a plastics polish, and there is one 1/3" long scratch on the rear bottom, as pictured. It's not as deep or as prevalent as the photography makes it to be. Otherwise the headstock, neck, and body are very clean! No buckle rash or other dings on the corners.
The electronics sound great IMO, but the EMG-HZs and preamp are too polite and refined for my tastes. The B string is nice and tight.
I'd like to pick up my replacement bass Saturday, so I'm looking for a really quick sale at $400 plus shipping
CONUS. That's well below what I paid for the bass!
I can personally deliver this bass anywhere in the PA/NJ/DE area. I don't include a "shipped" price because shipping cross-country can really kill the money I'm trying to make back with this sale. But generally the east coast will run you about $50 and the west coast will be closer to $100. That's because I drop the bass off at a professional shipper and let them do the hard work (peanuts and double-boxing), so you know it's done right.
Bass will include a simple gig bag.
