    i'm sure they are similar in feel, seeing as how they are the same series. i like the 500s feel. i didn't even pluck a string, but i picked one up and it was nice.
  3. The main difference is that the SR900 is a neck through and string through body design, where the SR500 uses a bolt-on design neck.

    There are a number of other minor differences as well, like the wood used.

    Personally, I own a SR905. Great bass!

    Have you checked out the SRX700 ?

  4. Okay, this one's for you...

    SR90X... Maple neck-through, maple wings, 'figured' top.

    SR50X... 5-Piece Wenge/Bubinga bolt-on neck, Mahogany body.

    Those are the only differences... Both have rosewood fingerboards, Accucast B20 Bridges, Bartolini MK-1 3 band eq's, and 24 medium frets with abalone oval inlays.
