NBD - Ibanez SR705

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Solarmist, Mar 17, 2013.

  1. I've been wanting one of these for quite some time, and finally got one! I got it from Sweetwater on a no interest payment plan.

    In recent thread there was a question on the neck joint looking a bit crooked on the bass side, and it's simply body contouring with the new extended neck joint.


    I really like the new easy access truss rod plate - it just rotates open ... no screws to remove.

    Tiger striped beast! Congrats on your new bass. How does it sound and play?
  3. It has a super nice slim neck, 3band Bart EQ w/mid freq switch, and weighs 8lbs - 14oz.
    I love the sound of Ibby SR, and it comes stock with Elixir strings.

    Gorgeous bass man. I love Ibanez's quality on those 500+ models.

    How are the pickups for the E and B? I had an SR700 for a while, but ultimately got rid of it because the pickups were HUGE and BOOMY for the E string, but the A, D, and G basically just sounded pingy and percussive. It was kind of frustrating because I loved the feed of the bass.
