Info on 1996 Ibanez SR505
I have played acoustic guitar for a few years have started messing around with Basses. I just bought my first bass, but I don't really know anything about it or if it was a good purchase.
After looking online and going into the local store to play some basses, I decided I liked the Ibanez sr505 because of the versatility and good quality bartolini pickups. I did not, however, have the $650 the store was asking, so I wanted to see if I could find something used that I could get sooner.
I found a local used sr505 on craigslist and went of to play it. It needed new strings, but it seemed to be gently used and have good action so I bought it for $270 with a strap and hard case. The serial number is C6031296, and from what I found researching online, it is made Korea in March 1996. I had no idea it was that old and have had no luck trying to find a manual or any info on specs and electronics etc. I am beginning to wish I had saved up and purchased a new one.
If anyone has any experience, info, or advice on this bass, I would appreciate a response. Did I overpay? Will I be happy with this bass for amateur recording and recreational playing? Should I try to sell it and save up for a newer one?
Thanks in advance
