    Anyone know what the dip switches on my Stiletto custom 5 are for? It has passive p/u w/active EQ. There are 3 dip switches on one of the pots inside the back cover.

    IIRC, they shift the frequency for the treble control...

    No prob, bud - I actually had a couple of their basses with that setup: a Stiletto Elite-5 and a Hellraiser 4... I wasn't impressed with the Stiletto, but miss the Hellraiser - I really liked it, and it was a fan favorite, but I got an offer I couldn't refuse - and down the road it went...

    Yeah, I think I got a dog - any manufacturer will put out one occasionally... Mine wasn't particularly a great player - and kinda disappeared in a band mix, whereas my Hellraiser 4 played great, and didn't disappear in a band mix...

    I have that same bass and I wasn't impressed with the stock pups. A set of EMG DCs really helped.
