    I just got an Ibanez SR905. A great Bass at a great Price, I'm really digging it!! It's a neckthru with Flame maple wings and Korean Barts pickups and preamp. An excellent variety of tones and the neck plays like butter.

    The B is nice and tight, The tone can be very bright to very beefy. It really is quite versatile.

    Those are sweet! I tried one at GC. If I were looking for a mid priced 5 with narrow string spacing, they would be on my list.

    They sound like anything else with the MK1 pickups and preamp. Some people don't like that setup, but I like it a lot. My wife's Lakland D55-01 has those, and on some days, it is my favorite sounding bass.

    Yes, I was kind of concerned about the string spacing as I don't usually go for such narrow string spacing but the more I played this one the more it persuaded me that was not going to be a problem. I really dig the MK1's p/u and pre. For a mid priced Bass it is really sweet! :)
  6. nice how much was it? Can you get a very low action on it?

    I picked it up new at Sam ash for $727.00 and it was set up already with low action right out of the box. I did not have to do anything to it, it was setup perfectly!! I've been cranking on it all morning, the more I play it the more I LOVE IT!! Wahoooooo!! :bassist:

    Those are really nice Ibanezes. I usually don't like Ibanez Soundgears, but when I played that one I was really surprised.The B String is very tight, and it had a great punchy slap to it. And the carved top is something to behold.
