    I haven't gigged that particular Ibanez but have owned 7-8 Ibanez Premium basses that have the same neck, body, and Electronics. Very roadworthy bass that sounds great with the Nordstrand Big Single pickups. Cut's through the mix nicely.

    I've had my SR 1305 for just under 6 months...

    I'm yet to gig with it but as stated above... wonderful solid construction, with nicely voiced pick ups, the options to bypass the active EQ and play it passive is certainly a nice option, though the 3 band EQ and the 3 way mid selector switch offers quite a lot of tonal variety!

    Well built, versatile, and quite nice to look at too! If you're considering one they're certainly reasonably good all-rounders as long as you're okay with the slimmer neck! :bassist:

    One of the best gigging basses I've ever owned was my Ibanez SR1805. It was so punchy and clear in the band mix. Had onee of th best B strings I've owned in a bass to.

    I bounce between passive & active basses depending on the gig/band/material.

    My SR1305 (modded with Aguilar DCB pickups) is the only active bass in my current collection and it is a monster in that role. One of the finest playing and sounding basses I've owned, period.

  8. dave hollingworth from dorje uses a 1305 as his 5 string...probably find some YouTube videos of him playing it...as far as the different premiums go, I think I like the ash one the best, right up there with the rosewood one
