    No. As far as Ibanez goes, any SDGR under the 885 is a poor bass, IMHO. Save up and go for something better. For goodness sake, please don't sacrifice quality for cheap price. Like they say, you get what you pay for. Keep looking fella.

    I've got the SR480 and I seem to like it just fine. But then again, I may be one of those people who has a fondness for cheap, junk basses that no one should even consider playing, let alone buying. Maybe I should have saved my pennies for a few more days and bought a $2000 perfessional bass geetar. Then I could be headlining at Madison Square Garden. Maybe I could get Ozzy and Metallica to be my opening acts. biggrin.

    It's not a bad bass if you're playing metal or hard rock imo owned one for years currently selling it but not because it's bad it just currently doesn't fit my musical needs
