    I just bought a Schecter Custom 5 string bass, I think they sound good. I was just wondering what everyone else thought? My only gripe is the fairly thick neck, kinda like Spector.

    i have a schecter devil bass and i use it as my main bass with my rock band...i also own a n/t thumb 6 string and a usa curbow six string, so it sits well with it's bigger brothers.

    I have a Schecter model T five string I think its a good bass.
     
  4. I have a stilleto 4 and absolutely love it. I think they make quality equipment, at least from what I've seen.

    I tried schecter stilleto 4 elite a couple of days ago in Guitar Center. The bass was sooo awesome... the tone was very versatile, the neck was great, and I liked the action. I think I'm gonna save some more money to get the stilleto studio version, cuz it looks cooler....
     
  6. I think this is cool! (see attachment)

    Oh yeah, I have a early 80's schecter P-bass type thing, and it rocks

    Schecter is a breath of fresh air in the "mid-level" market. They put out a 35" scale 5 string bass with 24 frets, neck thru, EMG (though midline, easy to replace) active pickups, and a feel that's amazing. They made sure that they play well out of the box (used to work at GC and saw every one that came in fresh... all very good). Then, they made it $600 or less (at the big stores)!

    I have a modulus and a warwick. I spent an hour whacking one of those basses around and had to restrain myself from buying one on the spot (BTW, dealer cost is super low, so feel free to haggle). I had to think very hard to myself "No! You have 2 other great basses!" If I lost my basses to a horrible tragedy, I'd grab a Schecter Stilleto 5 like THAT! Those are sweet basses.
