    Hi, I have a yamaha rbx170, which is my beginner bass. i am wanting to upgrade to a new bass. I want something easy to play with good action and that is well built. also want something versitile. whats everyones opinion on the schecter siletto studio 4 stringer? anybody have/played one. is there a better bass for the price range($600.00)? thanks
  2. I have a studio 5. I like it. For the price, it's a steal.

    I got a hardcase w/ mine for 5 cents at guitar center.

    Hi! I ve got a stiletto studo bass 6 since more than 8 month. It's awesome, very good finished bass, very good price, great versatility. Two of my music prof (guitar and bass guitar) said it's very good bass.

    For this price it's exellent.

    I would certainly check out the Musicman Bongo Basses and the Spector bass before I finalize my decision, although Schector does a fine job with their basses. There all in the same ballpark price wise, just some suggestions to open your scope of selection. I happen to like all of them; however, I personally prefer the Musicaman Stingray that I have. You can easily find a mint condition used bass that would equate to a new Schector.

    I picked up a modified Schec Elite 4 in excellent condition for $280 w/hsc. Had Bart M34C's and frets had been dressed and neck was straight. Very good craftsmanship. Well balanced, comfortable, about 8 1/2lbs. Low action, played great. Had a huge control bay that you could transplant any preamp under the sun into.

    I personally don't like NT's and the pup configuration limits options in terms of transplanting pup to vary tone.
