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 (just let me know if this is too many pics.) And yes, those are instructions still attached on what does which knob do Small ding on the headstock brought the price down 110euros and ~45 euro string set Now all I have to do is to learn how to play the damn thing.
