    Let me check that spacing for you..I quoted Ibanez specs, but to me it feels closer to my 18 mm Custom Soundgear....
    Watch this space!

    Bump, this is a nice bass folks. I played one and decided on the SR905 because I couldn't afford the prestige line at the time. If I could have, this is the bass I would have bought a year ago. What he's asking is roughly what I payed for the SR905 (which is also a very nice bass).

    Wow...very cool. I played one of the newer prestige models a couple weekends ago and it had a B string that rivaled the Modulus they had there. It beat out several other basses including an MM and Warwick. They just sound so good. I was contemplating walking out of the store with it but it was too heavy for my liking. What's this one weigh in at?
