well... iv wanted a(n) (epiphone) thunderbird for sooo long but could never offord one... recently i purchased an ibanes sr405 + hardshell case off of ebay for a total price of $314... what a great deal right? the bass alone would have run me arond $400 for a used one and the hardshell case another $80... iv had this bass for about a week now and i cant quite feel a groove on it.. iv been playing my P bass for so long i cant groove on anything of a different scale(right terminology?) the ibanez is just too small for me... im 100% sure that the ibanez is a better bass but if i cant feel the groove on it. is it worth having a great bass? what would you guys do?
