"The Stiletto Studio bass is built on the Schecter philosophy: take a simple, straightforward instrument made with quality materials, and deliver the goods with premium components and accessories. In this case, it's a mahogany body with a maple-walnut ply neck, plus EMG 35Hz pickups and house-brand hardware. The result is a rumbling golden tone, and a bass guitar that feels alive in your hands. Construction and Build It's not just about the materials, it's about how they go together; good thing Schecter has that covered. The body is mahogany with a bubinga top layer, and the neck runs through the body for a rock-solid and connected feel when playing. The neck itself, made of layers of maple and walnut, is just another solid piece of the equation, providing phenonemal resonance and tonality for any style of playing. Accessories and Hardware EMG bass pickups make the most of what this guitar brings to the table, and the guitar's internals are active, powered by an 18V battery that slots into a rear compartment. The on-body controls include master volume, blend, and a 3-band EMG tone controller. All hardware is satin gold, and it's all made by the masters at Schecter."
