This bass retails for $899...Guitar Center is selling it for $599.

Is there anything important to know about this bass that may contribute to that?

Or, in anybody's experience, is there anything negative about this bass? I've only really heard good reviews and, personally, I LOVE it. I'm looking forward to the purchase.
Cant sspeak for that bass itself, but i have a Schecter and stand by them. Quality basses IMO. Buy it! And then post pics!!
well, i don feel like typing it all out again, so i'm gonna copy+paste this from the last Schecter Stiletto thread to come along. that one was about the custom, but its the same idea, I think my point will get across.

Well, I own an Elite-4, which is essentially the same thing, except its a 4-string the Elites have neck-through design instead of bolt on. Also, I personally think they look a lot better (mmmmm.....black cherry and gold hardware........).

But back to the topic. Schecter makes great basses. I have yet to play another bass that I would rather own. I'd gladly take my E-4 over any of the others I've played. The only thing that I've ever heard anyone complain about concerning the Stiletto line is the neck width. Personally I like a thin neck, but not everyone does, so they gripe about that. I played an E-5 just a few days ago, and even though I don't much care for 5 stings, I must say it was a very nice bass.

As for versatility, this bass does a lot. You can get a great multitude of sounds out of it, and from what I've seen/heard you can do pretty much anything, from simple finger picking to slap (though I can't say for sure on the slap part, I personally don't slap at all).

Personally the only thing I would recomend is to take the Elite over the Custom, but that's more personal preference for neck-through and for the color than anything else. The pickups/electronics are all the same between them. If you like the sound, go for it. Its a great bass for a great price.
