I believe I have finally narrowed it down to 2 basses. Unfortunatly guitar center has neither in stock at the moment so I can not play them to finalize my decision either a Schecter Stiletto Custom-5 or a Ibanez SR-495. The Schecter is a 35" scale bass but I am not sure they make it in a "natural" wood color I want. The Ibanez is 34" scale and come in brown mahogony that I like. I am looking for people who have played one or both of these that can give me some opinions.
