Hi Guys and Gals I'm in the market for my first bass - after having played others' for a few years and a guitar for even more. I'd like it to be a 5 stringer and I've played a few at my local dealer. What I've played is: the Squier Deluxe J Bass V SR205, SR305, SR505 and SR605 Ibby Yamaha RBX375 And I'm completely in love with the Ibby's! Especially the 505 I've fallen for...though the price tag is not my favourite. I have, however, found a bloke at a local ebay'ish who has an old SR885 up for grabs at a reasonable price (the 505 is about 850$ and the 885 is marketed at 620$, whereas the 305 is available from the retailer at 500$) Is the 505 worth the additional 230$ over the used 885 (if the 885 is near-mint) - I certainly think it's worth the extra 350 over the SR305! What other brands could I check out when liking the feel and sound of the SR's?
