    salutations, i found a ibanez btb 405qm bass in purple for a bad ass price, 480$ on musicians friend. only one catch, its purple, but i dont care. has anyone played this bass? is it a good buy?
     
  2. That's a big fat pile of.....YES!! It's a very good buy, IMHO. It's one of the few basses of it's price range that I can actually stand to play (or hear). The long neck and individual bridge slots make the B very clear and none-clackity (a la Fieldy). You will need a good amp, though. This baby has power--and using a crappy amp is abusing that power ;) :D
    Of course, go to Guitar Center (or any other music store that carries Ibanez) and play it for yourself. You can't go on just my opinion :) If you like it, go for it. Me, I spent the original $600 so I could get a transparent black one. I didn't like the transparent purple that much. But to each his own.
