  1. Sale fell through on my SR496. EMG's sold and taking out of this bass and there going into another TB'rs SR506. So, Stock pups are going back in (DX6). Still a great 6 string bass for the money, don't buy a new SR506 until you check this bass out. This bass is very well built and is almost identical to the newer SR506 but with some minor differences in the body contour (SR496 is slightly larger), but the neck is the same Bubinga/Wenge and fast feel with low action, mohagany body, narrow string spacing 16.5mm, and same black chrome hardware (34" scale). I've A/B this bass with an SR506 b/f I put the EMG's in and they sound very similar (which makes me think about the SR506 Bartolini "labeled" Korean pups???), but the stock ibanez electronic's sound is decent enough for just about any style of music, except this bass is probably not the best for slap happy folks.
    I bought this bass new less then a year ago (and still looks it) from a friend at the east coast Ibanez factory, I think its a 2004 modal right b/f they switched to the SR506. Its a really fine well built bass (which justified putting in the high end EMG electronics), especially for someone who wants to get into the 6string bass realm. The necks action and feel is almost identical to my high end Japanese made SR3006e! The sound is incredible with the EMG's, but I dont think a lot of folks here want/need the high end electronics in a mid-level bass, so thats why I'm willing to sell separately.

    Bass options:

    with EMG pups and BQS pre-amp= $500
    with stock DX6 pups and stock pre-amp= $300

    + $25 to ship in the lower 48 US states.

    Also let me know if anyone is interested in buying the EMG 40P/40J pups and BQS pre-amp?

    BTW the MIJ Fender bass P bass is SOLD.

    the EMG's,
    are those emg 35's?
    I have a set of Bartolinis,and a bartolini preamp as well,
    but the Barts are EMG-35 sized.
    34" scale?
    narrow neck/spacing?
  10. Your 35's are 3.5" the 40's are 4", the 40's are designed for wide 5 string spacing or in this case narrow 6 string spacing. Yes, narrow and fast, typical Ibanez SR neck! Yes, 34" inch scale (sorry I'll edit). The stock Ibanez electronics sound very similar to the Bart MK-1 in the newer SR506. The EMG's in it now bring out another animal with this bass. I could email more pics if you like?
