    Hey,
    as I mentioned earlier, I'm a bass newbie who got into a band (actually got another bands tryout next monday :) ) and they "forced" me to play bass. Therefore I was looking for bass and had a lot of options what to get. Main goal was easy to play bass and five strings. Well one half of my quest for bass & amp has ended...
    Behold the Ibanez Sr-505 :D (just let me know if this is too many pics.)
    And yes, those are instructions still attached on what does which knob do :p
    Small ding on the headstock brought the price down 110euros and ~45 euro string set :D

    Now all I have to do is to learn how to play the damn thing.

    You just happened to get an excellent first bass! That SR505 should really serve you well. Get to practicing!:bassist:

    no joke. I sat with this model at GC and was really pleasantly surprised at how well this thing played. Nice neck profile. Sounded great with lots of useable tones.
     
  4. hey, that's a pretty nice bass you got there! i'm digging the barts :)

    Are those the stock pickups? Bartolinis would be a big upgrade over the usual Ibanez pickups.

    Yes, those are stock pups on it.
     
  7. Congrats! I started out on an Ibanez, and bought 1 other since. Solid, reliable, very playable bass. Nice choice!

    Seems to be very comfortable bass to play (after one hour playing at home :p ) and it sounds really good to me. The Eq give so much tone variations. Now for choosing amp for this one begins :)

    Ok, first of all, you can NEVER post too many bass pics out here! :D
    Second; don't you just love "dings"? Maybe I should start bringing a pocket knife when I go bass shopping....;)
    Nah. I'd never bring myself to do it.
