    Well it's a bass, which makes it the best kind of guitar!

    I'm not too familiar with Ibbys, but it looks like one of the intro models. I've heard great things about them, and I loved my SR505 when I had it. I'm sure someone will jump in with more useful info, but it looks to me like you have a pretty nice bass there!

    Looks like a mid 90s or late 80s Ibanez Roadstar Bass. Not a bad one at all.
     
  7. I think you got a nice Ibanez SRX series dropped on ya. Have fun with it!
     
  8. It's a nice bass. Not necessarily "intro" but not a Prestige either.

    Some are called SRX or end with DX like SR400DX or SRX400 I think. A headstock photo would help because it says what it is on the back. It's active, probably could use new strings and a setup.

    As for worth, that question isn't allowed unless you either:

    A) Upgrade to a supporting membership status or

    B) Word the question differently. Like this: "My neighbor wants to sell this to me for X dollars. Is it worth it?"

    Keep it and play it.
     
  9. That's an Ibanez SRX2EX2. Much more recent than the Roadstars. Not a bad bass at all. I used to have one that I played for years. They're an entry level/intermediate level bass with active electronics that have decent sound to them. I sold mine a few years ago to a friend for about $200. I think they're going new for between $250 and $300, but I haven't checked a current price in a while.
     
  10. Disregard what I said about new prices. The model's been discontinued, so that's outdated info and there's no current price to check.

    Great Grandparents!

    Go give 'em a kiss -

    I tried one of these at Guitar Center and really liked it.
    Ibanez is a great value for the money and the one I played
    felt and sounded like a much more expensive instrument.
    It was no slouch by any means and should give you many
    years of pleasure without having to invest in other basses.

    Plus it looks awesome.

    Congratulations!

    :cool:

    a whole bunch nicer than my first couple of basses. My advice; Learn to play, make some money, have some fun. Oh, and try not to get addicted toplaying the bass in a band.........
