Ibanez SR 496, what do you think?

  1. Hello Fellow TB'er's,
    I'm looking at getting a 6-string and I've seen the SR 496. It looks pretty decent and I was wanting to see if anyone has had any experience w/one. Should I shell out the money or wait for something better? Any input would be appreciated.
     
  2. Seems to be the "Middle" of 6 string heap for Ibanez. I was really interested in the Sr1306e but my local shop only has the 406. I think the 496 is basicly a 1306 without the Bart pickups.

    The 406 played real nice, I'm sure the 496 is better.
     
  3. Thanks for the input man. Any input is helpful. Thanks again.
