    So I need YOUR advice on what I should do to this bass:


    I want some... further modification.

    I'm going to get new hipshot tuners, a hipshot b bridge, and i'm having a new neck made I want a thicker neck with wider string spacing, p bass style).

    The vital question is:

    Rosewood Fretboard with Chrome Hardware


    Maple Fretboard with Black Hardware

    What do you think?
  2. Somehow I have a feeling you could get this all by purchasing another Ibanez bass with your specs, and you might need to pay a little bit extra but not much. But if you are really hooked on this bass... --Kent

    How about a ramp?

  5. sr necks are meant to have sexy thin and fast necks imo you shouldnt mess with it
    new bridge and since you're trying to change the fretboard why not get l.e.d.s put inside

    Then you should have thought of that before buying the bass; Ibanez (and especially the SRs) are well known mainly for one thing - thin fast necks. Buying such a bass and waiting for something different isn't wise to say the least. So IMHO the best thing you could do is sell it as it came (stock) and use the money to buy a bass that is more to your liking.
