8 April 2013
Summary: Great bass. This is my third go around with this axe. I am keeping my latest one until it is pried out of my fingers. The EQ is responsive and easily tweakable.. Play with Flat wounds that gives this axe a definite thud/ boom. I would highly reccomend this bass to those who are looking to get a bass that is worth more than the money you pay for it.
Pros: Fast neck, great price and an excellent build
Summary: Right when I saw it, and particularly when I started playing, I knew I would fit right well with this bass. The hardware seems top rate and solid, and the neck-through design gives it a fine sense of stability and quality. The jumbo frets were a surprise to me and my forearm(!), but a few sessions got me used to it, and now it seems perfect for my style. The neck shape seems quite fast and easily accommodates my freference of style.
Pros: Full, rich lower and midtones sound, beautiful construction
Summary: I did quite a bit of research before picking up another fiver. I selected Schecter because of their reputation for quality. I seldom read a bad review on any of their basses. My reasoning for picking the Studio 5 was the 3-band EQ on the preamp versus the 2-band on most of their other basses. I've owned it for a couple of weeks now and honestly, I find it hard to put down. I probably just need to get accustomed to it, but it seems the preamp could offer a little more.
Summary: I have had this bass for about 2 years now and when I bought it I was basically a noob. I had been playin for a couple years on a 150 dollar Ibanez. So when I went looking I knew I wanted through neck and good looks. After 2 years of playing this bass and getting more basses I really am impressed more and more. I get more compliments on my tone and bass looks when I play this thing. The active eq is great and I can dail in alot of sounds.
Pros: Great looks, neck through, smooth playability
Summary: I wanted to experience owning the Studio 5 for a year before posting a review. I wanted the "honeymoon" to wear off. But honestly, even after a year, I still really like this bass. It has a wide range of tones that can be coaxed out of it, but it will always fall on the "hi-fi/modern" bass side of the tonal wars, as opposed to the "classic" sound.
Pros: Versatility, tone, a real mid-contol, looks, neck-through build, decent hardware and electronics, value.
Summary: I haven't played a lot of electric bass, but I know what I like. I have a fender V standard and that thing was CUMBERSOME. This feels a whole lot better, and the sound is decent too. For the buck, this is a great bass. They are all over craigslist, at least here in San Diego, so you can probably find one. The tone is not quite as fat as I would like, but it works in a groove/jazz type setting. Not so hot for a heavy rock setting.
Summary: I give this bass a 9 for it\'s overall versitility and price. I\'m a southpaw (thus the reason that you see the lefty bass pics above) and the 4 string righty is just a pic that I found on google to show the finish in greater detail. I play mostly \"black\" gospel and jazz so I needed a bass with a fast neck, good lows, warm mids, and bright highs without breaking the bank.
Summary: i play alot of diff styles of music,gospel,jazz,funk,punk,post-hardcore...so i need something that i could really play around with,so one day while running around i saw this at my local music store plugged it in and it sounded great!!! you can get quite a range of sounds.....i really dont like 5-strings but the neck on this was so comfortable and fast and i figured the B would come in handy in the long run, so i would deff recomend this to someone with a large playing...
Summary: ok now ya, i paid a little more than i proly had to for this bass, but it was only b/c i had to go threw a smaller dealer b/c guitar center kinda dicked me around and they lost money on that one.anyways this bass was never one that i saught originally i just kinda fell into it. i am a south paw player so it was already kinda hard for me to find a reasonaby priced bass.
Summary: This bass feels spectacular! It turns me on it feels so good, silky smooth. Action and set up was almost perfect out of the box. After changing the strings to DR Red Devils, I lowered the the E to G strings and raised the B string. No neck adjustment was needed and the adjustments I made were personal not necessary. The woods chosen for this bass certainly do it justice especially with the neck thru design. It sustains forever.
Pros: Well constructed, good set up, loud and cutting.
Cons: Not enough warmth, cavities need shielding, Elixir strings.
