    Between these two, I picked SR, but the Groovelines are the best-looking Ibanez to my eyes.

    First, I voted SR. BTB and SR are both good models of the Ibanez brand but when picking just one it really depends on the budget the you have b/c once you get into the neck thru model SRseries basses, you really cant go wrong with either. As a bass player, I'd say get both if budget isn't an option. All bass players have to have more than one bass. :bassist:

    But if you are in the $700 or less range, get a BTB if you can find one. At that lower price range BTB has a better bridge, better tuners, better input jack, and in my opinion better sound. I also think that it contours to you body better than the SR, but remember once you get up to the SR905 model and up, you really cant go wrong.

    With that said the number one rule is pick the bass thats best for you regardless of what everyone else says. you have to play it and not us, so here are a few areas for you to judge what is best for you 1) sounds best with your setup/rig 2) what feels best. I would go to music store and test them out. Good luck and happy hunting.

    I have always liked the Soundgear bodies ever since I bought my first one in 1993, a 93 SR 400. I still own 2, a 94' and a 95'. Both are SR 500's. I have also owned a 95' SR 800, a 2010 SR 500 limited edition and a 2007 20th5 20th anniversary Soundgear bass.
  20. My favorites are the 2006 and onward Soundgear bodies. I like the SRT, too.
