Hey all, So I have a Schecter Stiletto Custom 5 coming my way here in about a week. I've always liked the Stiletto line and I found one for a deal I couldn't pass up. Since I got it for such a killer deal, I figured that I could easily justify some upgrades. Unlike many posters here, I actually don't mind the passive EMGs that come in Schecters, but I wanted to just do an upgrade on the bass so it would easily hang with some of the other higher-end basses I have sitting around. I find the construction on the Stilettos top notch and easily on par with basses much more expensive. First, I snagged a Korean Hazlab pre. I dig the Haz in my Spector, so I figured "why not?" It currently has pots for passive pickups and the diamond pot layout should work with the four knob, diamond knob layout of the Schecter. Next, my plan is to order some Norstrand Big Singles to swap out. I have a friend who has these in his Ibanez Presige, and I love 'em. From what I understand, I'll need the size that is comparable to EMG40s and I think the string spacing is 16.5mm, but I'll need to check. Anyways, I keep everyone who is interested in apprised in how it turns out.
