I need help on buying a new bass...

  1. I just started saving up my money for an Ibanez EDB605 5-String Bass for $595. But before I go out and blow my money, I want to know....is this a good deal, or am I wasting money on a piece of trash? Please help me out! Thanks!

    If you want Ibanez...it's almost universally agreed that the BTB series is the best Ibanez series in production. And for 600 bucks, you can a BTB405QM. These basses are superior in the electronics, hardware, and B-string. The 35" scale neck really helps keep the B string from flopping. Pretty much anyone would rather see you in BTB and and EDB...plus, they look killer!

    This is purple, but the Black is killer too...
