    Greetings all! Time has come to upgrade my 5 string from my Yamaha BBG5s to something a little better. Just not a huge fan of the super thick neck compared to my Lakland Skyline 44-01.
    I'm really interested in the Ibanez BTB 845sc and the Ibanez SRSC 805. I really like the single cut look on both of these models. I do a lot of slap work so a wider string spacing would be better for me I feel. Both models have the single cut, neck through design, and mono rail bridges so the sustain is amazing from what I hear. What are y'all's thoughts on my dilemma here. I really don't live close enough to a store that stocks these regularly, so I'd probably order one from sweetwater or something and set it up and give it a really good test drive before the return period is up.
    Thanks a lot folks!

  2. I only played in a store the SR Single cut.
    A well made instrument. Gorgeous top-wood. Great playability and sound.
    I did not buy it because the SC design is not appealing to me.

  4. Very smooth, the neck like all SR’s thin, but not too. Sound-wise I was also impressed.
    Great value for money, even if it was a few hundred more expensive.

    Nice. Did you slap at all? If so, how did that feel?

  6. You gotta slap :). The string spacing is not uncomfortable to me, but I can understand it could be for some at first if you are not used to it.
