So I'm stuck between getting two basses:
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/bass/schecter-guitar-research-stiletto-extreme-4-bass A Schecter Stiletto, or
http://www.dcmusicstore.com/Washburn-T14-Bass-Guitar A Washburn T14Q. They both have pretty good reviews from what I've seen, I love both Schecter and Washburn, but I can't really decide which one to get. Does anyone have any insight?

go with the schecter, the quality will be far better and i think the tone will be loads better. I love my stiletto and i am thinking about buying the 5 string version.

Statistically, the Schecter is far better. Plus, if you're like me, you'll love that active EQ.

I'm gonna be the naysayer.

I am not a fan of Schecter, or active electronics. I say go for the Washburn, seriously under rated company.

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

i would say play them both for a good half an hour at least and decide for yourself.

the shecter looks alot higher quality

when Moses brought down the plagues upon Egypt one of them involved Behringer amps


Dont be so humble, your not that great....

Completely off topic but this just made me think--

You know, I'm the same way about active basses and, on top of that, I know most people hate the sounds of EMG HZs, but I bought a parts-bin schecter diamond elite 5 (I think it's the older equivalent of a stiletto elite 5) with a blown preamp, and proceeded to tear it out and wire the pups with a passive jazz configuration.

I can't believe how much I love the sound of it. I think absolutely everything that rubbed me the wrong way tonally was because of the preamp. The bass is also pretty darn comfy and perfectly balanced even though it's beat to hell.

I used to work in a music store that dealt Washburn and their quality seemed to be a little inconsistent. Most of their instruments played very well and had a lot of value for what they cost, but sometimes the QA department was asleep.

The T14s are actually really nice basses, but in my experience, Schecters are more consistent in terms of quality. I vote for the Schecter.
