    Which is odd, because I'm not partial to neck-thrus.

    I think for the money the Schecter basses are great deals and they play very well, not that fond of the electronics but at there price point they are better then most others.
     
  4. I really like mine (Stiletto Custom 5). The EMG HZ are sort of love or hate, but I like having a variety of different sounds, so it makes a nice addition to my collection. The build quality and playability sold me on mine - I feel like it's built well above it's price point - and it doesn't hurt that it's really light.

    Downside is that the finish is pretty delicate, and the control layout is a little weird - the blend being where I'd rather have the volume. My band like it better than my Alembic. :shrug:

    I think it's well worth the $, and if you played it and liked it, go for it.
     
  5. I love my Schecter custom 4. Great axe for the money.

    However, I hated the Ampeg it was plugged into. Don't like toob heads. :D
     
  7. Schecter's are great. My band loaned me a CX...something....with 6 bolt neck. On those basses, u can get zero relief without buzz. astounding really!

    anyone know how it compares to the elite 5? there about the same price
     
  9. Schecters are an awesome value! Yes, the EMG HZ's are not the greatest and I am not a fan of the narrow string spacing. But, I still love my Custom 5.

    Im the reverse, not a fan of neck throughs. Although I recently bought a ESP F255FM and love it.
     
  10. I absolutely love my Custom 5. Buy it. You won't regret it.

    I hate those basses with a passion. They feel like toys and sound even worse. I've never held a bass I felt less comfortable with or could find more unusably bad tones from.
