    It's an older model, so it might not have Bartolini pickups/pre, and that's the only thing I think you'd not dig too much, since Ibanez didn't used to be known for having too great stock pups.

    My SR-1206 six-string was my main (easily 90% of the time) bass for 4 years before I came to the rude awakening that I wasn't using a six-string to it's full potential, and that I ultimately preferred other methods of construction for "my sound".

    However I still own it, and it's the best bass out of all of mine for chordal and tapping work (I believe the laminated wood and neck-through construction helps in those factors). I'd agree that the preamp and pickups aren't the greatest, but they're certainly usable. Still, you might want to budget for replacements depending on how good a deal you can get (and from my tracking them on eBay, there are deals to be made! :D )

    i got an sr1200 only its flamed maple green. They gave me a hard time about the pics too. I still didn't get any posted. If your interested in a 5 string get an sr905.

    cool, freak! i am a 4 banger ,but i bet for you 5 stringers ,freaks advice its on the money ,this are well crafted ,great sounding basses ,if the neck was a little thicker it would be perfect, but you cant have everything !!! ,by the way freak, what pickups do you have on yours? carlos
