http://www.ibanez.co.jp/japan/news/f_products/2013/SR2500_SR2505/index.html I'm super intrigued with this bass. My first ever "quality" bass was an Ibanez Soundgear and I've always liked the design. However, aside from a very rare/odd "Ashula" bass that I had for a while, I've not had an SR for a long time. I like the feature set listed for this SR2500 (alder body, maple/rosewood neck). In particular, I love that it's got the sonic arch pickups that were installed on the Ashula. Anybody here have one, or have played one? Any feedback would be appreciated . . .
