    I bought an Ibanez sr300dx a few weeks ago, and am not happy with it. I am within the return window, and only paid $210 for it. I have another $400-500 I can put with it, and am looking for a better quality bass. I am a newbie at the bass, but am not happy with this ibanez.

    Any suggestions. brand, model.

    for reference, I play country, blues, old time Rock.

    Thanks

    A Jazz bass would do 'country, blues & old time Rock' great.

    Thanks,
    I'll give them a try tonight. I love the Ibanez for looks, and from the 5th fret up it is great. but on the low end, it has a lot of rattle, not fret buzz, but rattle.

    I have an '82 Ibanez blazer That I love, an ovation celebrity and a Squier deluxe. so I am not new to guitars, but basses are a different animal to me.
