The SR shape is fine. What they need to do is change to neck-thru builds. If they had that I probably never would have bought two BTB's I like them ok but the SR is far more comfortable to play. If you want boring and never change get a P-bass. ( I loved my '75, but that was then.. way better options now)
I had an old SR in here for some repairs, it reminds me of my Tune basses. Small, light body and comfortable neck.
I don't think they should change this model, it's really good as is.
I had a sr900 in flame Maple that was neck thru...I regretfully sold it and still miss it.
Yes ,that was the model #....I knew there was one but could not recall it. I can't understand why they didn't expand on that one. I found one on Reverb now, but not it the market right now(or so I'm trying to convince myself)
Never! It would be New Coke all over again.
there are way more than one
Here’s a list of all the 4 string 34” scale fretted neck through soundgear models that I know of
2010-2011 SRT800DX i posted a picture of this one on the previous page
i left SRX models out
The Soundgear Club
Left out the SRF also?
are all neck-thru Soundgears.
are they fretted? at the top i specified fretted for my list.
my list does erroneously contain a fretless though. can you spot it?
Yeah, I'm aware you wrote fretted. That's why I wrote left out in question mark.
The others (which are guaranteed fretted ) are the SR Cerro series:
One thing I noticed on the neck-thru Soundgears is that the necks are thicker than their bolt-on siblings', which even thicker than the necks of BTB neck-thru.
That's the SR2040E right? The available online pictures don't seem to show it also has a thick neck. Does it?
Wow thanks, never knew there were so many ,came across the 900's before. A thicker neck would be a negative if thats a consistent thing. I have a SRF705 portamento which has a thick neck. I thought that was related to the extended fingerboard. The BTB's are more manageable(1825 and 845V). I don't know why a neck thru would need to be thicker since they are more stable than bolt-on. When I contacted Ibanez about a current neck-thru, they referred me to only the BTB and SRF series...guess I need to look to the past(?)
since there are so many soundgears, i focus on the ones that aren’t fretless, multi scale or single cut.
The SR bodyshape is probably my favorite. I love how it's smaller & lighter than most bass bodies. If only I could adapt to the 16.5" spacing on the 5-strings.
In case you aren't aware, Ibanez also has a couple of 18mm spacing SR 5ers. First, there's the single cut SRSC805. And, for those who prefer regular dual cut body, there's the SR2405W. More for this year, they are adding the SR1605DW, which is about to enter the market in a matter of months.
Hmmm....lets see. Lightweight, superbly ergonomic, looks great. Quick! Change the body style! Look how well that turned out for Fender, anybody remember the Performer?
I didn't know about those. Unfortunately (or fortunately since I'm broke anyway) I'm not a fan of the finishes on those basses. I like more plain "boring" stuff.
Idk. After gigging all week on the the sr2600 Premium. I am sold out to it. At first I struggled. But then I Put Roto 66’s on her. She pussy whipped me. Done deal.
Anyone else think Ibanez should change their SR body?
Sure. They've only sold 10's of thousands of them in every flavor imaginable and remains probably their best selling line today. Makes perfect sense to change it . . . . .especially since Ibanez makes so few other bass models . . . . . .
They made a neck-through SR. SRX? I think. And some of the older Prestige models were also neck-through.
I don't get the calls for "changing" the SR. Don't Ibanez release enough new models every few years or so? Why not play one of those.
I have the SR655 (picture at left) and the only thing I don’t like about it is the body shape. Everything else is great.
