    Kind of stuck in the middle
  2. Get both, play both, return the one u don't like. I did the same thing but went for the SR705.

    Ibanez. The Schecter is way too thick everywhere and the SR500 sound is hard to beat
  5. I vote Schecter, but also suggest you spend adequate time with any bass you are considering. I have a Stiletto custom5, and a Stiletto extreme5. Been my main axes for about 5 years now. Both of mine are bolt ons, as the neck thru versions just didn't do it for me (and I really wanted them to). Basses in this price range can vary quite a bit in quality, and tone. You really need to lay hands on them to know if you've got a keeper. Best of luck, and enjoy your new bass!

    Love them both, but my vote is Schecter. Just plan hard to beat in the price range imho.

    Honestly that's a tough choice to make. I own 2 schecter stiletto basses and an Ibanez soundgear bass. they both sound awesome and they're great for hard rock and heavy metal music.
