I always liked the look of those basses, but the specs on anything but the Elite and Studio models seemed pretty mediocre.


If this is your first bass, then good purchase, and you're going to have good intonation by learning on a fretless.

^ Don't double post. The "Edit" button is your friend.


Also, are those "Schecter" logos on the pickups stickers or permanent? They're horribly ugly.
#6
I really like the colour of it! It's too bad that the headstock doesn't match the body, but it looks sweet how it is. How does it play?

looks pretty good from where i am
"Whats that noise??"

Damn dude. That thing looks amazing. I love Schecters, too.

Can I have your address and a copy of your house key?
#10
Ahh I have the 5 string fretted version, they are VERY good basses, should last you a long time. The perfect bass for people who can't afford the Warwick/Rickys and what not.
#11
The body looks sick.
But I've never found a use for fretless
And I've never played a shecter that had decent tone...
But that looks more higher end than any shecter I've played sooz good luck with it

I didn't even know Schecter made fretless basses. Good find.

Is that active? Gotta be honest, I cannot understand active basses with flatwounds.

Looks good. Nice colour. How much did it cost?

$350

And the pickups are actives

Me neither, it's like putting marmite in rice pudding.

Good choice on the bass anyway.

Huh, can't say I have ever seen a Fretless Deluxe, much less a Stiletto of any kind coming in a natural finish that dark. Where the hell did you dig that up? The Studio is the only Stiletto I have ever seen as a fretless. I even just checked their website, just in case. Nothing in that color, no fretless deluxe, nothing. Wherever you got that, either its a fake, or you made a great find, I really couldn't say which.

Oh, and they're PASSIVE pickups with an active EQ. Every single Stiletto has passive pickups with the active EQ, none are active. The only difference is whether they're EMG or Schecter. And the Schecter is directly on the pickup, just like the EMG logo on their pickups.

Still. I don't know where you got that thing, but one way or another, good find. Wish I could find something more about it. I mean, it looks all right, just the color is what is really bugging me. Ah well, you probably just made a good find.

^Yeah, the vast majority of basses that are "active" have passive pickups and active preamps - I just think flatwounds on an active bass are back-asswards.

Wow! What a coincidence, I was thinking of buying the exact same bass! How does it play?

Eh, so far as active pickups I would agree, but the pre-amp doesn't really detract from the sound any so long as you don't go nuts with it. I will say I prefer my all-passive fretless Jazz, but I wouldn't hold it against a fretless if it had an active pre-amp.

I've found active preamps to be naturally brighter at a flat or boosted EQ, and that brightness to me really brings out the limitations of flatwound strings. That thumpy percussiveness starts to get clacky simply through the clarity of the preamp, and that really brings out the "flatness" of the string for me. Active fretlesses are great, assuming they had "proper active strings."

I know it! Never seen that kinda finish. The Pups, Bridge and Headstock point to it being a Deluxe indeed, but the finish and the fretless neck seem odd. Fett, did you also look on the Schecter Pages for Europe? Since I don't think you can get the Deluxe in the US.
Anyhow, Schecter rocks, I hope you enjoy your instrument TS!!
