    Well i'm looking at a small price range and i've narrowed it down to 2 things:
    1.Ibanez EDB 600 [gotta love that red rock sunburst]
    2.Music Man SUB bass 4

    I love them both!!!which one do people recommend?I mean,the music man does the funk and sounds sweet,but the ibanez might be a better all rounder?I don't know,HELP

    the ibanez is nothing compared to the music man.

    I know everyone else will probably recomend the music man.... but i think its probably a lot to do with the name... people dont seem to lie ibanezs'... but, i would recomend the Ibanez everytime, i have an edb605.... and its the best bass in the world - no questions!

    Get the Ibanez - dont be a sheep.

    hmmm...The music man felt better,and had a sweet sound,played better etc.The ibanez has more frets for soloing,sounds damn cool but i think i remember the strings being a bit close for slapping...plus it's really heavy,but it looks damn nice.General quality wise,people with experience of said basses,the music man do we think?
