So I got my Ibanez SR1015 stolen out of my car after a gig. I payed $900 for it about 5 years ago, though home insurance only payed me $300 for it (it was stolen out of my car in my driveway). So I had a decision to make being close to broke and all.. what to replace it with? I have researched many a bass in the 5-$800 price range, of which Warwick and Spector cought my eye. I have played both, and liked them, but niether of which enough to buy. Spectors are dry and warwicks are overly warm. So at a Guitar Center that had both of these, I went on my first day off work in weeks... There were all types of basses there 70-80 total I believe. I played many and only 1 stood out, the Schecter Stiletto Elite 5. Very nice, neck through, EMG-HZ pickups. Passive with active EQ (quite impressive for passive in my opinion). Its got a sweet finish and gold hardware... But ya it plays very nicely, thinner neck with close action. Quick. So after close investigation, internet research and and a good ammount of time I decided on it. It was marked $599, and nothing on the internet could beat it. I went back to the store, and was playing it one last time through an SWR Workinman's 15 (used tagged $349). It sounded baaad, and the dude said he would get me a price on a package. The long and short of the story is, I finagled my way to this bass, a case and the amp for $850. I was very happy to get to this price and bought it immediately. I also told him I needed a cord thrown in as well as I was leaving, so I recieved a LiveWire 12 footer or so for free. I had to tell somebody!! Thanks for reading, and comments are appreciated. Anyone play with this equiptment? Also I took pics, but dont know how to put them on here!
