    The marks on the electronics cover are there because the little protective film was never removed, so the scratches are on that :)









    Let me know what you think!

    Also, are there any tutorials on getting different sounds out of the bass? I am coming from a simple tone/volume control bass, and now have all of these options, but no clue what to do to get different tones. Any help is appreciated, thanks a ton!

    Nice looking bass.

    IME, Ibanez manufactures good products at reasonable prices.

    I find it amazingly comfortable, the whole feel is great. Im a big fan of the neck, its so comfy to play. I just need to mess around with the knobs to get the tone Im looking for.

    If anybody has seen Dave Chaplle's block party you get to hear that bass quite a bit as it was played by the roots' other bass played. I think is name is adam black. Im not a fan of Ibanez, but that is a nice looking bass and it sounded good in the movie.
  12. I love Ibanez gear, congratulations on the SR905!

    Interesting, thats pretty cool! I will need to check that out.

    For you guys who moved from a four to a fiver, are there any exercises you recommend to get use out of the low B? I will be honest and say I suck pretty bad at improv jamming, so I need songs to play, lol. Any smooth, easy/intermediate songs that use the low B that you recommend?

    Anyways... Thanks for the comments, I love it too, I am very glad I purchased it. Amazing instrument for $560 (thats including the case, not sure how much that is worth)
