    SR490 actually is on the Ibanez website, nice description too, I'm looking to get this bass actually. Anybody else try one or have any thoughts on the 490?

    Dude, I don't see the SR480 on there, lolz. I have the Ibanez SR3005 Prestige, and man, its the ****. I love the SoundGears thin ass necks, they are quick as hell, and sound awsome. These things are pretty built too (SoungearS), great for live ****, and great period, highly reccomended man... _-soto-_

    I had a SR485 (which is now discontinued) and I didn't like it besides the looks. If I were you I would go and try out the SR490, and make sure you hook her up to an amp cause the pickups on mine sucked. I think they were called DX5's. Anyways, try to find one somewhere and play it.
