Ok, so i've been playing over three and a half years and i finally ordered a new bass.(link below) I was wondering if there's any sort of flaws that schecter commonly has that i should be looking for to return it. This is just to make absolutely sure i didn't waste $600 just to find out it has a flaw and it's too late to return it.

So if you have heard anything bad about schecter basses or have found something out first hand please post and let me know.

BTW: I didn't order it from that site but a local guitarshop that offered same price. I like to support local business ya know.

Well, its not quite what usually comes up, but I think you'll get the idea.

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.

I have a Schecter Stiletto 5 and it is practically perfect. My only complaint is that when changing the strings, the saddles that the string rest on in the bridge can fall off sometimes. Other that that little nit-pick they are flawless.

Which bridge does it have, the Diamond plus, the S-tek or the Diamond Custom. I don't personally know much about the diamonds, but if you have the S-tek (Eiltes or Customs) that shouldn't happen. The saddles are integrated into the indvidual bridge segments. I couldn't take the thing apart if I wanted to.

The S-tek on my Elite is the most solid bridge I've ever laid my hands on. This is one of the reasons I recomend it even over the Studios, that bridge is amazing. It has individual segments for each string, so that the changing the tension on a string barely affects the other strings, if at all. Also, combined with the neck-through construction, it has so much sustain I can't even begin to describe it.

So, once again, GET THE ELITE (in black cherry >_> ). I am so happy with mine, that I can honestly say, there is not a single other bass I would play a show with. The only other bass I would even buy is a Rickenbacker, but thats a Ric, so its in a class all on its own. Given a choice between my Stiletto and any other bass in existance (without exception) I would always take the Stiletto.
