    I've had 2 SR500 which I loved but ended up selling because they always sounded like a strange version of a Stingray to my ears.

    This time, this SR500 was modified, with the Bartolini pups and pre-amp gone and a pair of DiMarzios and just vol+vol+tone+tone and a set of Thomastik Jazz Flats JF344 this Ibby sounds better than both my Precisions at the whole "P with flats" gig.:hyper:

    One issue is... I'm allergic to nickle and will have to replace the strings sooner rather than later. :(

    Oh, almost forgot pics!

    Once again, passive electronics and Thomastik Jazz Flats work their MAGIC!!

    Well, my best bassplayin' friend/modster of choice ever is allergic to nickel as well (I don't) and you display same taste in what's hot n'true in a bass sound! Enjoy!

    Congrats my friend

    Beautiful (and solid) bass you now got;)

    Nice bass, congrats. This makes me wish ibanez still made higher level SRs with the flat top and p/j pickups (just a personal cosmetic preference, they look sleek with that configuration IMO!).

    The previous owner replaced one of the tuners but used a "top" side rather than a "bottom".

    I need to find a fitting replacement, I don't like the way the string is sitting. Help? :)

    -EDIT: will a Gotoh GB7 (14mm or 9/16") fit?
