    Played one a few times. Lots to dig. Why they put those cheap wanna be Barts in there really irks me. Neck is great to play on and the 33" scale sounds and feels good. If I jumped in a would probably swap the pups, which I know there are not a lot of options for that monstrous size. I'd like a pup and the ramp to be closer to a J bass pickup which is what I am most used to playing and anchoring on. I feel like I am a mile away on these. Also rather then E-C tuning would probably go D-G-C-F-A.

    Anyone else score one of these recently?

    I've got one, love it. A little on the heavy side and 100% agree about the electronics. Great idea from Ibanez though.

    I like mine too. Curious I don't see this model mentioned much in the "short scale" threads,
    but I never was that bright either...
