    A neat new 32” scale SR is on the list too! Ibanez may be my favorite bass company simply for the chances they take.

    Let’s see a Premium or Prestige Mikro next!

    Yeah the blue BTB 5 is really nice. I may have to pick one up. I did HUNDREDS of gigs on a BTB. If this one is a little lighter than my old one I'm sold.

    No affordable Thundercat sig? :eyebrow:

    ...weeeell - I will admit a full thickness, semi-hollow bodied 6-string with EMG HZ's & Piezo is probably not the hottest thing in the market, no matter what the price. :whistle:

    It sits under the strings usually between two pickups. It is designed (as I understand it) to stop your plucking fingers so that you don't dig in too hard. It sort of cleans up one's technique I gather.

    I have wanted to try one for a while now.

    Uau!

    I think I'm turning into an Ibanez fan!

    I only have the SRH 505 for a couple of months, but it's now my favorite bass!

    I'm thinking of selling my avri 64 Jazz and my Maruszczyk Fretless to justify buying a fretless Ibanez! What do I do??
     
  16. Obviously.
    It's just that I've grown accustomed to asking TB. :)
