    Picked it up used. I can't find any information about it online really but I assume it's the fretless version of this:http://www.musiciansfriend.com/bass/schecter-guitar-research-stiletto-deluxe-4-bass
    Anyone have any experience with it? I'm very much a newb, and know absolutely nothing about Schecters. Is Diamond Series their low end line? Does anyone know exactly which knobs do what? I know the one closest to the pickups is volume. The other three click to a stop in the middle. I play out of a teeny little crate guitar amp at home so it's hard to really hear the nuances of it. Any feedback/experience would be much appreciated.

    Schecter diamond series are fine basses- I think they are Korean made

    You need a bass amp. Check your local Craigslist or pawnshops.
  3. Center-detent knobs likely control active, boost/cut EQ; centered would be flat.

    If its anything like my schecter, the knobs are volume, pickup blend, treble, and bass (not sure if the terminology is right). My Schecter is great, a bit more expensive than that, but im sure its a fine bass. It doesnt seem right, however, to have a fretless bass when you are a "noob" and are still playing through a small guitar amp. This isnt your first bass, right?

    No I have an epiphone Allen woody and another fretless frankenbass. I'm a newb in that im still learning but I'm doing ok. I'm doing fairly well with fretless, I think and I have a good ear for intonation from my trombone playing back in the day. I really prefer the feel and tone of a fretless anyway. I'm in no rush so I'm taking my time learning technique and fundamentals. I do need a proper bass amp though.
