    I have an Ibanez ATK 4-string and I'm looking into getting an <a href="http://www.ibanez.com/guitars/guitar.asp?model=SR3005E">Ibanez SR3005ESOL</a> 5-string w/ Barts.

    The Barts are passive and I love the active electronics on my ATK but I've heard great things about the Barts.

    Does anybody have any experience with a SR3005ESOL? Do you think I'll be happy with the Barts instead of active pickups?

    Any advice would be appreciated.


  2. I have one of these, but with a battery at the back, hence active. Must be because it's of the Prestige line. Great tone(s), I was surprised that I feel content on how a bass sounds off the bat for the first time.

    i have a 2003 or 2004 SR3005ESOL with USA barts and a 3 band bartolini preamp for sale. I'll throw in the original vari-mid electronics as well.

    it's in perfect condition except for the usual player wear on the oil finish from slapping.

    it's really a stunning bass
