    Well I walked into my local musicsotre to try out some 5 string fenders and walked out with this [​IMG]

    What first suprised me was weight I belive its under 7 lbs around 5.5-6 and its solid mahogany The neck is also seriously thin and the pickup is nice and agressive and punchy , although not as fat as Id like. All in all a steal for 250 I liked it way better then the SRs I played and the american standard 5 P just wasnt worth the 1400 they were asking.

    All in all a great bass to go with my fretless .

    Im thikning of adding a neck pickup possibly a quarter pounder jazz or precision

    Can you get a smoother less aggressive sound out of it it?
    I love Ibanez. I've got an SRX300 and an SRX400 and was thinking of getting one of these to have a passive bass. They look really sweet for the price.

    Well right now the strings are pretty zingy but a roll of the tone knob mellows it out quite a bit almost too much but its got a nice hard attack too it and the pickup is super loud.
    Im thinking of throwing an EMG/bart soapbar or a seymour duncan MM
