after weeks of doing internet research looking for a new bass i had decided to order my botique elrick bass....after playing one however i wasnt as impressed as i thought i would be....i think that is mostly because of the neck setup and type of strings on the bass....over all it was a nicely crafted instrument. but over the weekend i went to my local music store to get a feel for what im looking for in my new 5 string....believe it or not i found it in an ibanez sr755....this bass was so comfortable and so easy to play and it was only $699... although i eventually want to order my "botique" bass this will save me not only alot of money for now ...but also i wont have to wait months for my new bass. the guy at the music store also suggested i look at the schecters if i like the sr's...he says they run a little more expensive but said the style is very similar.....my question to you guys is am i making a wise decision? should i just wait for an elrick? and what are you opinions on the SR's and schecters? any feedback would be appre3ciated?
