Has anyone ever played the Ibanez SR1905?

    I played one today and am wondering if I should get one. I have a Fender American Elite Jazz Bass so it is a completely different world. I am not sure what the biggest difference is from say a SR1905 to a SR5005. Any thoughts?

    I had a SR1205 and also a SR1405 and both were awesome basses . Same pickups and preamp as what the SR1905 has . Mostly just different wood for the bodys . The Nordsrand big singles and the Ibanez three band pre with passive/active switching and a mid freq. switch really give some great options . My favorite to run the pre was passive , the big singles just sound great that way . They are single coils so there is some noise when rolling towards the bridge or neck pickups like any Jazz bass but the bass is fairly well shielded and isn't overly noisy at any setting . The SR5005 has Barts so I really can't say what the sound difference would be .

    Both the SR Basses I had were great players , the B strings on both were very good . The build quality was A+. Very much high end basses .
