This bass is awesome.

I have a SR1405. This bass feels better than the SR... It resonates in my chest. It's beautiful and sounds beautiful. My bandmates can't believe that it only cost me 300. If you're looking for a 6-string, this is badasss.. Don't let the Gio fool you. Ibanez figured out something special with this one. I never write reviews but I had to on this.


I have owneded 6 strings basses from Ken Smith, Fodera,Fender,Prat,Yamaha and others and found this to be as comfortable to play as any of them. While certainly not as boutique for $271.00 it handles all of my occasional 6 string needs.

Absolutely Gorgeous for the Price

I bought this recently with the intent to practice/track on, since bass really isn't my primary instrument, but I was interested in learning, and I was beyond impressed. It plays and feels amazing, the sound is awesome for the price (the active boost knob is a brilliant addition) and this is overall a great instrument for those who want to get into extended range bass. I honestly can't put it down.

Surprisingly good instrument for the price

I was septic at first since I bought it on line. The neck is very straight, the strings heights are low, the sound is nice. Very good buy for a first 6 strings.

Nice bass for price.

I needed to raise the action and have a local guitar repair shop lower some frets to stop fret buzz. The bass now plays nice, but I cannot get the intonation perfect on the "B" string after many adjustment attempts. It arrived from Sweetwater one day after I placed the order. That was great!
