    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.

    This isn't baseball.. its "Basses" :D

    when it comes to 5 strings.. ALWAYS try them, especially if they are from a "mass manufacturing" company. The B strings on these companies vary from bass to bass. ALWAYS play the bass before you purchase unless you know for sure they will come great on delivery

    I know, it is a typing mistake rather than a "spelling" mistake. As I did type it correctly in the message. :) Unfortunatly it is in the subject and I can't change it.
