OUR PART # STILETTO-CUSTOM-5
The 5-String version of the Stiletto Custom bass. All of the HZ bass models feature solid bar magnets that cover the entire width of the strings so any string layout can be used. This model uses an extended housing that is 4 inches (102mm), perfect for five string spacing’s. From classic rock to heavy metal this pickup performs.
Schecter Bass tuners provide high quality, precision tuning with minimum weight. Details include a 17:1 gear ratio allowing for precise fine tuning adjustments, removable knobs, threaded peghead bushing, and a 13.6mm diameter peg hole.
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.
The neck is made from 3 pieces of maple and 2 center strips of walnut. This well balanced combination of select wood takes the bright tones of maple and adds a dark tone from the walnut strips. Often used for Thru neck construction giving the acoustic tone of the instrument a perfect string vibration transfer to the body.
The high tech looking S-Tek bass bridge provides extra long string travel for precise intonation and the individual bridge saddles eliminate string 'cross talk'.
