    I have to say I am not a huge fan of Fieldys bass playing stlye. But I tried his bass out and I have to say I liked it very much. Has anyone here at TB ever tried it out? :)

    Seriously, it's not a bad bass. Nice neck, punchy sound, ability to dial all the mids out so you can get Mr Arvizu's sound. But I'd rather track down an original Ibanez SR1305 (the old Ibanez model it's based on) than to pay more and get the same bass with the crappy 12th fret inlay.

    Ive played the Fieldy bass before, it is a pretty cool bass, Not too crazy about that inlay or the pricetag, but its not a bad bass
  6. As most independent thinkers/non-Fieldy bashers have posted about it, it's a nice, well-made, well-constructed bass of quality wood and parts (and I even think the price isn't too bad considering the above.)

    I also agree that if Ibanez took off the huge K5 inlay and left the headstock signature as its "signature marking" they'd sell a hell of a lot more of them. Most g*itarist friends of mine also agree on the K7. Who knew they they had taste? :smug:
