    I have recently visited a guitar store and tried both the Schecter Stiletto CST4 and th eIbanez EDB600, they both seem like good basses,, although the Schecter tone was better. I need all the input u can give me on this seeing as this will not be a small purchase for me.

    I think you answered your own question! If the playability of both are comparable then the Schecter wins for its tone.

    Personally, I haven't played an Ibanez yet I liked the tone of. The ergonomics of them are great but the tone just blows for me.

    I own a Schecter Elite 4 and love it. The only area I see for improvement is in the pickups/electronics. They are not bad but I think full blown active EMG's would make a nice improvement.
