    I have had a very good month bass wise. First I got a G&L M2000 GTB:
    IMAG0495. IMAG0496. IMAG0498.
    Then this week I scored a G&L M2000 GTB:
    IMAG0510. IMAG0513. IMAG0512.
    And then yesterday I ran into this:
    IMAG0515-20181026-12363855. IMAG0524-20181026-123520101. IMAG0529-20181026-123516387. IMAG0526-20181026-123518916. IMAG0527-20181026-123517692. IMAG0522-20181026-123521298.
    I'm still getting to know these basses, but as of right now I can say that the Ibanez SR670 is beautiful and sounds really nice and punchy with a nice amount of low end while the G&L's are just plain authoritative.

    I'll be gigging these basses tomorrow night and should have a little more feedback on the Ibanez. I already know from gigging the G&L M2000 GTB several times that it is one great sounding bass loaded with growl and musical sounding mids.

    Now I need to stay away from music stores and Talkbass Classifieds for the next year.

    Thanks, but no I don't see myself selling these. I actually found both G&L's online with Las Vegas Guitars and Studio Gears, which are sister companies, and if you call them you can haggle the price down which I did. I am not affiliated with them, just lucky enough to find them.

    I got the white one from the classifieds here and the trans black through Las Vegas Guitars. I really like the 2 G&L's a lot, the 18 volt preamp and those pickups really do make a difference. Honeymoon period and all, but after I gigged the white one I had to look for the black to go with it. They are that good IMHO.

    I had no plans on buying an Ibby, but I saw it hanging next to a purple Guitar Center Limited Edition Schecter and it looked great under the lights. After I tried it out along with the Schecter, and a couple others, I knew it was coming home with me. BTW that Schecter was also nice, but money doesn't grow on trees unfortunately.

    The Ibanez looks nice on pictures, but it looks fabulous in your hands plus it helps that it really does sound nice. The mid selector switch reminds me a bit of the Mid selector on the Genz Benz Streamliner where you can vary the tone quite a bit just with a flick of the switch without changing the volume. But again I'll know more tomorrow after I gig with it.
