Having heard of some mates who have used Soundgear basses along many years, I decided to trade my current basses for a couple of SR´s. Very excited I got a new SR705 and a used (in very good condition) SR700. The 705 already arrived. Very nice bass, excellent ergonomics, and quite light for being a 5 string. Excellent fit and finish...until I arrived to the cable input... There´s a lot of gunk, left from the polishing process, so a thorough cleaning of the cavity is worth the time. Ibanez basses are a delight to play. P.D. These 2 and the incoming SR700 will be held on for a long time, I hope.
