    I was thinking about getting the Ibanez Mikro 5-string, but how good is it? How will last in the long run? If I buy it what should I upgrade?



    And any other suggestions for passive 5 string basses?
     
  2. I have a Mikro 4, it’s the only new bass I have purchased that had good factory strings. After a setup, no issues at all,I will buy a Mikro 5 soon. As for a suggestion,look at Schecters,I have a Diamond 5 and it’s a killer but the 35” scale isn’t for everyone. Enjoy the day

    In one word, it's terrible. Ive had both the Mikro and the Mikro 5. The 28.6" scale works for a 4 string but not a low B string, at all. It sounds awful, very boomy and unusable. Nearly impossible finding strings for it too. You definitely need a 34" scale for a 5 string bass.
