I recently joined another band as a bass player, and I wanted to get a 5 string. After shuffling some gear around, I stumbled upon this at Music-Go-Round..
It's a Schecter Stilleto Elite 5, apparently an older one? Set neck, EMG preamp of some sort. It plays awesome. And it's easy on the eyes
I was quite shocked to find a Schecter without a bunch of terrible fret inlays. And I wasn't sure about the gold hardware at first, but it's growing on me.
Oh, and I also grabbed this off craigslist for 100 bones. I wasn't able to get a good bass tone with the HD500 so I figured I'd give this a shot. HOLY SHIT, this thing is awesome.
