I've seen a few older Ibanez MIJ SR series 8s and 9s for less than $400, and some swear it's the deal of the century, but I haven't read much about the tone. Could someone articulate what tones one can pull from an older MIJ SR? Is it snappy and hi-fi, or old school thump with punch, or can it do both? Are they pretty flexible, or do they work better for J-bass tones? Is it more of a P-bass vibe? FWIW ... I really like the flexibility of the tones from the MIK/MII Ibanez SR series, even the cheaper 370M (though the pickups are getting changed to the new less radiused models for better matched volume on the E and D). With all the tone pots on my Max 700 at noon I can run the controls on the bass centered in the detents for a nice clear hi-fi tone, roll the tone pot up for slapping, or roll it all the way off and goose the bass pot a hair for a fat and punchy Tommy Shannon vibe. For less than $400 it ain't bad. But what might the MIJ SR series bring to the table? What holes might one of them fill?
