More than Bass

Before manufacturing its own electric and bass guitars, Schecter made spare parts for other renowned guitar manufacturers. Those times are long gone and now Schecter makes high-quality original models at affordable prices. Today, we will test a bass guitar called the Stiletto Extreme 4... read more…

Audiofanzine FR's review

By Audiofanzine FR, 06/12/2008
(Originally written by Cyrilbass/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
The top and the inlays look wonderful. The guitar is quite gaudy looking and that's the reason I bought it. Its main problem is that it feels very fragile (I actually fear I might break it! I already broke a machine head, I had to service the frets and the hardware has rust marks, which I sort of like ^^)

UTILIZATION

Perfect neck! The frets had to be leveled in order to allow a proper neck adjustment but once I did that it's simply the best neck for me!! It's very slim (really fast) and doesn't make you tired not even after several hours. This neck is really a wonder. I think my next bass will be a Stilletto but a class above because this bass guitars have wonderful necks! It's very slim (and not very sturdy) so it's possible to make some SMALL dive-bomb effects pushing the top of the neck! Easy access to the upper frets but the heel is quite big!

The bass is perfectly well balanced and it stays in the right position, which is a good thing when you play very high notes.

It weights the same as a 5-string Rockbass Corvette.

As a summary, this bass guitar looks very nice but seems to be too fragile.

SOUNDS

A turnoff!!!

Lousy sounding pickups! The sound is poor, it has no punch and is quite dark.

I needed a long time to get a good sound.

I plan to upgrade them.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been playing it for one year.

It's a good bass guitar and it's the only one I use because it's very easy to play, but it needs to be accurately adjusted!

The main problems are the sound and the sturdiness.

Start by upgrading the pickups, then the hardware and you'll have a very good bass!

Excellent

See below.

UTILIZATION

The neck is super nice, I left a PB and I loved this one.
A real beast of ergonomics, not heavy, would be straight when you play with ... the top, although the body is a little small.
Access to acute simple, and just trouner the knobs to find his sound.

SOUNDS

We can make the sound you want, I play on the Fender Rumble 100, and I quickly found with the EQ EMG very effective.


OVERALL OPINION

I have been using ... 2days
I love the finish on the plan is unbeatable, it is absolutely beautiful.
Then I have not really enjoyed the little body, I'm pretty big and it's a little ridiculous ...
The back of the neck painted in yellow, it's not terrible either, but still, it was the back so we do not see it.
Excellent value for money, being the price it's hard to find better.
I would do this choice, obviously.

Jumbo Frettes24
Pickups: 2 Bass Schecter Humbuckers w / Active EQ circuit
Electronics: 2-Band Active EQ with volume, tone, bass, treble

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, very good access to acute and it was a pretty incredible playability.
This bass is quite light. Is obtained very easily thanks to its one seeks the active equalization very effective.

SOUNDS

Ideally suited to metal, rock.
I play with a pod xt bass and a Fender Rumble bassball on a 100 and it sends really.
It is not easy to make a very heavy, as the very air and deep.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year, I love its finish, its lightness and the ease with which we get the sound you seek.
Level value is taken very, very correct, bought € 600 at the time it now costs about 440 € new very good deal.
I would definitely do it again this choice to play metal or rock.
