Schecter Stiletto Studio-6 or Ibanez SR706??

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by newfie_hardy, Aug 2, 2008.

  1. I'm saving up for a bass, and I want a 6 string, It should be good for tapping, I like to pop and slap a lot, and I know how hard it could be with so many strings. Anyone have any suggestions, anything to contribute here? I would like to jam a lot of Red Hot Chili Peppers. Both basses look nice, so I'm not talking about looks. So here I am Stuck betyween the Schecter Stiletto Studio-6 and the Ibanez SR706, and I don't know much about them. halp!

    Sorry, never played either. I'd suspect they're probably pretty comparable as far as quality and sound goes. Try to play both and see which one you like better.
  4. I have the schecter, and I love it. I remember having to choose between the schecter and an Ibanez BTB. I have never played an SR though.

    If you get a low action on the schecter, it is amazing for tapping. It also has a good slap tone, but I don't use it for that much(that's what the Warwicks are for:bassist:). I have mine tuned to E-A-D-G-C-F. You can hear me using it on all the Bach stuff on my myspace(in my signature)

    ive played both. The only thing i dont like about the Ibby is the tight spacing, though i dont recall the spacing on the schecter so it may be the same. They are both pretty good basses though. The schecters, to me at least, always felt like if i dropped it, it would break in half. ibanez could break your feet if you dropped it.

    I am facing the same problem!
    Geez, I don't know, maybe I should go for the Schecter.
    I already own an Ibanez GSR180 (yeah, I know...) so I don't really feel like buying another Ibanez. What am I, married?

  8. I was really close to buying a Schecter Stiletto Studio 6, but couldn't find one in my area to try out. I didn't want to order one without playing it first. It seems like a really nice bass, especially for the money. I say go for the Schecter.

    I'm now in a band with a guy who had a 5 string, and he said it sounded and played awesome.
