hello all! I've been searching on the net a good price for an 2nd bass, I was gasing on ibanez, a rd 600 (only 1 thread on TB, appears to be unaviable in US) when I felt down on a german webshop, an big surprise, the 600 has a great sister, the 900 . searched on ibanez.com, nothing. (maybe I neeed new glasses) I wanted to get your oppinion on what kind of sound will it give, and wich one to choose. take a look at the specs: rd 900: RD-900FM: - Flame Maple wing w/Bubinga stripe body - 5pcs. Maple/Bubinga thru-neck - Rosewood fingerboard - Accu-Cast B20 bridge (19mm string spacing) - Bartolini mk1-4-F neck pu - Bartolini mk1-4-R bridge pu - Cosmo Black hardware - incl. Case pics: http://www.musik-produktiv.de/shop2/shop04.asp/artnr/100018410/sid/!18121995/quelle/listen rd 600: - Quilted Maple top/Mahogany body - 1pc. Maple neck - Rosewood fingerboard - Accu-Cast B200 bridge (19mm string spacing) - Seymour DuncanBasslines SJB neck pickup - Seymour DuncanBasslines SMB bridge pickup - EQB-2D 2-band eq w/EQ on-off switch - Chrome hardware pics on ibanez.com (europe) question: wich one can get a full, in your face sound? is the bart mk1 a good pickup combo? off thread: take a look on the sr1000, and the btb 550... http://www.musik-produktiv.de/shop2/shop03.asp/sid/!18121995/ob_id/531/seite/12/nur_lieferbare/nein I how a mij '75 reissue with barts+ gotoh bridge+ amg bt active pre, a serious animal that ain't no fear facing the Marcus Miller signature... (smoke, no joke!) but the thin neck is not so comfortable for my big hands. would I be desappointed with the sound of the ibanezes? tone? I'm on the dark side of the booooooooooom they could give a different tone with the mm, but I like mm tones too for cutting through. I find used p and j basses too expensive for me, even used (overpriced you're right!) so I'd like to keep the thread on ibanez. thank you a lot guys!
