Heya folks, my name's Dimity, 20yrs old, I'm no pro but hey..... Anyhow I play mostly 5 string basses....Jazz, Metal and a little bit of softer stuff.... I've been playing for only a little while, but I'm in a band called MuvBloated and another forming band called PiG...anyhow enough about me. So hey, nice to me ya. Oh and to break the bread, like I said I'm still in my early playing years, so take it easy on me...... Okay, here's my question....I'm thinking of getting a new bass soon, what do you think about the Ibanez Soundgear line? I'm not a big guy so the smaller neck is of interest to me, what about it's sound. I'm looking into the SR305 and SR405 models, and not looking to spend a big deal of money. Any advice on other brands or models in the $400-$600 range is welcomed also. Later.
