Ibanez SR705This is the best bass that I have played., totally blown away by the tone this bass produces. If you're looking for a top of the line sound then this one is it. I'm very happy with this bass and wouldn't hesitate to recomend it to my friends. Top of the line sound and looks great too.

Ibanez SR705I am a very particular consumer, but I liked the price point (as this is a backup for my magical Sadowsky 5 string.) How often do you use a backup after-all?
Anyway, it showed up (with an outstanding fit and finish). While I prefer a flatter neck to fit my hand, this C shape neck was doable and the tone was very, very good. I run it thru GK heads and amps.
Bandmates were quite impressed with the overall experience and it is a keeper. I would buy the unit again if this one went walk-away. I would love to have a high-end Lakland or a second Sadowsky, but I live in reality. For experienced and picky bass players, it will get the job done.
I am old school (P-Bass use for years), but I rolled the dice to have a second 5 string ready to go to just in case. Moreover , it works for me in rehearsal as it has nice balance and weight. I just wish the neck was more to my liking. Otherwise, it would have a top grade rating.
