    So its been a long time since i've been on talk bass! like.... many months! But i figured this would be a good time to update!

    So first, a while back i bought a Ibanez BTB 5 string on CL for $100. Its a nice bass! It was all grody when i first got it, but i took it all apart and cleaned it up good and it plays to my liking! :D
    There are my 3 older basses

    And heres my new one! Its an Ibanez SR706 (as you probably guessed by ye old title of the thread). DAYUM, i love this thing. The guy who sold it to me had really light strings on it (~ .120-. 25 or something) so I restrung it with some heavier strings when i got it (.135 - .030) and it plays really well. I think it looks awesome too haha. I ended up buying this for $350 from the guy. I would try to write more about it but i'm still really busy playing it because it plays... well... really well haha
    I'll have to find a way to record a video of me playing and take some better pictures!

    Congrats on your new bass! Does it have the Bart pickups and preamp? I tried out an sr700 not long ago and it was very good.
