    Mouse85, why do you want to start an anti Ibanez campaign? Esp. when we have no clue what you play??? Do you have a grudge against them from prior experiences? I may not care that much for them, even though I own one, but I wouldn't go bad mouthing something that might offend other Ibanez users here on the board.

    Well, buy yourself a GSR...friendly price. I hear the 200's play somewhat nicely, too.

    Ok, Mouse, you talk about how bad my Ibanez 506 sucks and I'll talk about how Fender cannot make a good 5 string, except for the Roscoe Beck.. every Fender 5 I've played, Squier, MIM, MIA or MIA Deluxe has a floppy B string, a bowed neck and a weak sounding B string.. OTOH, even the crappiest Ibanez 5 made, even though they have LOUSY pickups, has a better B than ANY Fender I've ever played EXCEPT the Roscoe Beck model..

    The low B on my Ibanez 6 blows away ANY Fender 5 except the RB, and it's damn close to that one.. do I like it as much as my Pedulla? No, but not even the Roscoe Beck can touch THAT B string..

    It's a shame the company that invented(actually, Leo did!) the bass cannot make more than 1 good 5 string, and NO 6/7/8s..

    Leo, OTOH, made a pretty decent 5 at G&L before he died.. L2500, I like that one almost as much as my Rapture..

    Before you start a small riot, most people on TB aren't very fond of Fender basses (including me). Ibanez is a good bass depending on what you play. Every bassist likes a different tone. Be respectful of what other people play. Also, not everyone can afford an $8000 bass like you have.

    I'm willing to play on basically anything, but I just like the feel of a Fender. Granted, they aren't the most awesome basses on the market, but I certainly don't need a hugely fancy, expensive bass. However, the other bass I like is the new Cort 6-string Curbow. Really comfortable, nice sound, and almost cheap. But, that's just me.

    I have an Ibanez bass, I think it's great. And not just for the money either, I think it is a good overall bass. Sure companies like Pedulla and Warwick make more expensive basses, some of which I like better than my bass, but I really have no complaints about my Ibanez.

    Embellisher! Comparing Fender and I****z is like a ´61 Dodge Phoenix vs a ´93 Suzuki Swift. (Fender being the Dodge of course...)

    You still never said what you have against them. So I guess I don't have the facts. I personally don't have any problem with either bass.

    I nominate this thread for "Silliest Thread Imaginable." For crying out loud, if you think a particular brand of bass sucks, don't buy one. The Fender-haters are a total crack-up. Fender basses are played on more recordings than any other brand. Maybe more than all other brands combined, who knows? Virtually every pro bass player has at least one Fender in his arsenal. As for Ibanez, I've seen some mighty nice ones lately, and I'm sure their sound is usable in the pro arena. From what I can see, it looks like they're shooting for the teen market by getting endorsers like Fieldy to play 'em. This means that they have to hold the price point down so that their target market can afford the product. If you want a high-end bass, you're not going to end up with an Ibanez, most likely. So what? SOMEBODY out there likes 'em. That's what keeps them in business.

    What is accomplished by ranking on a particular brand of bass? Why don't you tell us why you just LOVE the brand you use (which, by the way, is not universally loved by all, no matter which brand it is).

    I'm definitely not a Fender hater, their 4 strings are great, I just happen to think that they only make 1 good 5 string, and that's the Roscoe Beck model.

    I own an Ibanez 6, a Pedulla 5, a Fender 4, a Peavey 4 and a Westone 4, so I definitely think all of those companies make good basses..

    Matter fo fact, I don't think that ANY one brand sucks, people who do are pretty narrow minded IMHO..

    I could say Warwick sucks because they don't make a model under $2000 that I like, but I have played their Streamer Stage I and II, and these are awesome basses, albeit very good ripoffs of US Spectors [​IMG]

    Hehehehehehee...i'm tempted to move it now...i mean, it IS talking about basses...and...well...hm...this is off-topic...but...oh jeez, what to do? You sure ya don't want this insane thread, GM? I'm sure the basses section dwellers would LOVE it!

    Maybe i'll give it to Wheel.

    Actually, i'll just keep here, seeing as it did incite a riot. Yay.
