    I went to Guitar Center last Wednesday and while I was watching their drum competition, hanging on the wall was this.
    An Ibanez SR500 it was used for 119....so why not, played it, loved it, bought it. The 4 holes are from a thumb rest that i didnt like so that was the first thing to come off. That now makes 2 basses. I love this bass its great. Gotta love getting new gear

    Thats a hell of a deal, did the case come with it? Because if it did, you robbed them

    Dang, IMO I'd go at least 200 for em...heh.

    Nothing good like that ever at my GC...

  4. +1. That bass for 119 used it good, but the case would make it even better.

    the case didnt come with the bass, man I wish it did for 119. I got the case for 50 bucks so around 170 total with everything which made me very happy.

    $170 for all that is a STEAL! Are those EMG's or Ibanez pickups, can't tell from the pictures. They're great basses, don't worry about the holes ;)
  7. wow...cool...

    The pickups are EMG's. This bass plays great the holes dont bother me at all. I love playing with this bass
  9. That's definately a different SR500 then I'm used to seeing... You have any clue as to what year she is?

    The year I believe is a 2004 model, but I could be wrong with that the only numbers I can find on the bass is on the back of the headstock it says SR500 C401622.
