So Santa was cool enough to stop by my house last night. He brought a B stock ibanez btb1406. It was only 950, including case. I adore this bass! It's beyond anything I thought I'd ever own. The finish is perfect( can't find the flaw that made it b stock). The sound is way "cleaner" than my fender jazz, or I suppose modern is the right term. The set up was just fine out of the box. If you ask me, it's one of the most beautiful basses I've seen. It's been way easier to adjust from 4 to 6 than I thought it would be. I'm still finding myself slip up every now and then, but I can play the songs I already knew with little to no hesitation. I've been really into tapping lately, and this thing sounds amazing for it, I actually prefer the passive tones to the active. With the 17.5mm spacing I find myself moving way faster up and down across the strings. Anyway, sorry for the jumbled up thoughts, in just excited about this bass! I hope everyone has a merry Christmas.
