    Its not a great pic, I took it with my phone cause its the only camera I have, but soon this will be mine!! :hyper: Its odd too cause I really dont like Ibanez SoundGears, but the price was too good to pass up. Only $275 for a SR506 in excellent condition.

    Remove the HTML tags and you'll be set ;). Not a bad looking bass from what I could see, which wasn't much :p.

    I guess he thinks it looks like a spector.

    Thank ya fellas. Its not exactly the bass I really want. Like I said, not an Ibanez fan. But right now Ive got nothing at all, so Im pretty excited.

    About the sound clips, i dont have the capabilities of doing it on this computer. :( its a dinosaur

    Cool! I have one just like that, Mama C.

    It plays great and has a very good B string. But it does need some new electronics. Pretty weak sounding.

    But you should be able to tweak a decent sound with your amp.

    Yeah, i totally agree with you on the electronics section, I think the pickups could be better too. I was thinking about in time, having a set of bartolini's put in with the bartolini preamp that they put in the lakland usa and 55-02 models. I figure that'll soup it up and make it sound somewhat professional.

    Very good bass IMO. I own one of the 2004 releases with the Bart's. Amazingly well built, great bass. I'm sure those are good, sans the electronics. And hey, you can always send it my way if you really dislike it.
  13. I exchanged the pickups and electronics on my SR400 for EMG(BQS System). The difference was like light and day, it does the trebly modern sound extremly well now. Definitly worth the hunk of cash it cost me.

    Yeah, that will do it. With an electronics transplant, these would be a true pro quality sixer on the cheap. If mine had Barts or EMGs, I probably would have never bought my Cirrus.
  15. somehow, I think there's more to it than just that. The logical thing for you to have done was to slap in the Barts..

    Face it, Jeff, you wanted the Cirrus... :cool:

    He would have been a fool not to buy the Cirrus that he got. That is one beautiful bass.
