    Yes, people have them. They're very much like basses.
  3. Weird that you hadn't seen them before, cause they are some of the best selling basses in my many countries. I own one. So what's your question on them?

    I've used or owned the 400, 800 and 645. All good basses, great basses for the price...

    My first bass was an SR500. Great instrument to start out on. It later became my first fretless. I wish I had never sold that thing... after all, it was my first bass.
  11. Yeah, I own an SR100, not much I know, but a good cheap beginner bass. It plays nicely, although there is not much tone colour. I like the low action, though.
  12. I own a SR1000 right now and I really like it when I play heavier music... but I usually don't so Im selling it. I really don't like most SR's maybe I'm bias to mine

    Ya i have a Sr500 (although it's a four string?) it has some of the best slap sound for the price. also they have some of the skinneyest necks so if you want speed they are the ones to go with.

    Also i am thinking about selling it so if anyone is interested give me a call.

    My first bass was a SR300DX in standard Jewel Blue, i still have it,, its a good bass for the pirce but the electronics forme let the side down,but put some 40's on and lower that action and u can get some great harmonic and slapping action out of it, i found that the standard 45's didn't do it enough justice..

    my advice spend a bit more and go for a Rockbass.. they aren't WOW but they do offer a lot more for ur money interms of useability..

    I own an SR400 right now. I love it, it's done me no wrong. A lot of people are prejudice against Ibanez and might tell you different. For the price I think SR's are great.

    I have an SR506. Plays great, although the string spacing is a little tight for slap.

    It doesn't sound that good through most amps, but through my new Peavey BAM210, it sounds awesome. Almost as good as my Cirrus. So it will start getting a little more playing time.

    I own the SR800 and its a great bass. I love the thing. Has a really thin neck that makes it easy to get to every note on the neck. It's fairly light in weight, and cool looking. It will do for every type of music that you play, go for it.

    I have an early 90s 1000E with the semi-parametric EQ and the old Gotoh bridge.

    Nice bass, light and good-sounding, the semi-para will probably make it a good fretless, I'll defret it some time.

    Oh, I replaced the pups with Basstecs.
