Yeah.. well Ive been looking for a 5string bass recently. Right now I have a Yamaha RBX760A (forest green... im lookin to sell if anyones interested), but I really need a 5 string for my band. So far Ive been looking at 2 basses in particular, the Yamaha RBX765A and the Spector NS-2005. However, recently Ive come across the Ibanez SR485. Ive not been a fan of the SR series of Ibanez in the past, but this one caught my eye. Active PU's, Mahogany Body, Wenge in the neck.. it looks great too. what are your opinions on this bass? Is it worth it, or should I stick with either the RBx765 or the Spector?
