Thought I'd give this bass, an Ibanez Ergodyne 900 a second chance. I had a 5 string version (the 905) not too long ago, but wasn't too happy with the floppy B string - overall not too impressed by it. Skip ahead a couple of years and I saw the four string version at a price that was worth taking a chance on, intended to flip it. Wouldn't you know it, the four string was incredible to play. It has the slim neck of the SR300, but with a wider sound capability and best of all, no chemical smell to it! The bass did not reduce to a pile of sawdust as some have predicted, it was solid sounding polyp shaped bass! Going to keep it and buying another one as they're no longer being made. At the price point, I'd take it over a SR300/SR400 anyday. That story being said, what bass do you have that took a second look to fall in love with?
