So I've decided to finally upgrade/switch back 4 strings. I went to my local GC and played around with their basses. The Ibanez felt and sounded the best. I tried everything else in my price range (Schecter Studio 4, Fender J and P and etc) and I kept coming back to the Ibanez SR700. I was hoping to find it used, but it seems SR700s aren't very common. I found used SR500s. I was wondering if they are the same bass with the only difference being the finish.
