    I'm seeking a replacement SRX705 for my busted EDA905 from Ibanez. I hope they give it to me. Anyways, I used to have an SR400. It just had no balls. The E string had no oomph. My friends Fender Standard P blew it away.

    So how does the SRX705 compare? I hear it's grindy with a ballsy low end. Opinions?


    Just for the record, the EDA ruled, I just want a more meat and potatoes kind of bass.:bassist:

    I can only comment on the four string models, the SRX400 was ugly as anything, played almost as good as my SR400, but it definately sounded ballsier, more like a Stingray, though it seemed a one trick pony.

    And yeah, SR400 pickups are kinda weak, but once I swapped them out for EMG's the thing just kicked major arse. Shame the neck is too narrow for my taste now.

    Ive played an SRX700 and an SRX400. They both sound SOMEWHAT similiar to stingrays. They have a beefier tone than SRs. THe SRX pups are LOUD, compared to the rather weak pickups in Sr's.
