    None of the links work!

    But I would get a Ibanez anyday over a SX, IMHO!

    I would have to disagree...my preference would be the SX over an Ibanez. Good stuff, good quality, and easy on the wallet.....but I've also never ever been an Ibanez fan......just my preference though

    If you're in the Boston area I'd definitely recommend going to the Burlington, MA store. The store manager there is awesome to deal with.

    The Ibanez over the SX - hands down.

    BTW, the Aeb appears to have been bought.

    All three are polar opposites. You've got a fretless, an acoustic, and a fretted. Better sort out your priorities first.

    I dunno, I haven't played SX, but I've only heard good things, and I know first hand that Ibanez SRs are quality basses. You new to the instrument? If so, the lined one would probably better facilitate the learning process.

    and how to you know that the acoustic one hasn't been bought?
     
  12. hey well you could say im new to the instrument but not really. Ive been lpaying electric bass for about 6 months but ive been playing upright for several years so i guess you could say im new to fretless electric basses but in a way im not. :meh:i know that the ibanez a/e isnt sold because i looked and the link was still up there which means that it most likely didnt sell yet. also, what was making the decision between the 2 fretlesses tough was the fact that the ibanez in good condition comes with a case in fair condition but the SX is in very good condition for a less expensive price. what should i do?

    Well, if you're been playing upright for a few years, then you should have much less trouble than most playing an unlined fretless..

    Anyways, what style of music would you be leaning towards?
     
  14. well id be playing both rock styles and jazz in a jazz band... possibly funk as well but mostly jazz and rock for my school and just for jamming... thx

    Well I've personally experienced that ibanez sr series aren't so great tonewise for traditional jazz or blues (though good for pretty much everything else), whereas a fender clone should be, and like the ibanez, they should give you a very nice rock sound, too.

    So i suppose I'd recommend the SX.
     
  16. thx for the advice i really needed it... ill get them shipped down to my local store and try them out and see which one i like best... thx again...

    Wouldn't a new SX be cheaper? Is there anything particularly special about the one that Daddy's is listing.
