I really like the look (Zebrawood). Have no idea about the quality, sound or feel. Price is high (for me), but I might consider selling some things to get it if it is actually a decent bass. FWIW I've been playing an Alvarez AEB5C for about 5 years now, in church bands and been quite happy with it (other than how it looks) and it was only $400. No way I can afford a Ken Smith BSR 5PE. http://namm.harmony-central.com/SNAMM05/Content/Ibanez/PR/Limited-Basses.html Opinions? Sarcasm? Flames? Encouragement?
