Im currently playing a black Ibanez ATK 100, which i bought used with an amp for 200 (a steal, i know.) The bass has treated me very well, but im thinking about upgrading to a new SRX 505. First of all because I want to go 5 string, and secondly, i like most things about the srx. The only problem is the thinner neck (which dosent seem as bad on the 505 than on the 500 ( 4string). My concerns are that i dont know if I just have really bad GAS, or if it would really improve my play. And on a lesser note, the color i want (translucent blue, on the 500) isnt available on the 505. I play punk rock, alt rock, and classic rock ( think staind, rhcp, thrice, jimmy eat world, van halen, led zep...) My rig... 98 ATK 100 Avatar 210 Neo ( 4ohm ) Hartke 7000 By the way, i dont want responses from naysaying ignorant ibanez bashers (however, if you have good suggestions from other companies, im open to suggestion) Thank you.
