    Sweetwater quality and service

    This purchase worked smoothly right from the start. My phone call to Sweetwater and my experience with the associate. Everything went as planned. Quickly arranged payment through PayPal. I received the instrument(s) in just a short two day time frame and was blown away by the appearance and quality of the instrument(s). Immediate follow-up by Sweetwater to ensure I was satisfied. EXCELLENT

    Brilliant!!!

    I purchased this bass as an upgrade from my original bass (Dean Edge 10A PJ).I am still a beginner with the bass, or ANY musical instrument, having just been learning for about six months.
    My main reason for wanting the upgrade was that the cheap, mass produced Dean bass had fret ends like razor blades and I was tired of having my hands cut.
    This Ibanez SR1200 is beautiful to look at, and the neck is silky smooth on my hand. As a beginner I can't say if this bass is truly "professional grade." However, my inept fumbling with the various controls can produce a great many sound shapes from very dark and punchy to very bright and shimmering with everything in between. One thing is certain, this is a better bass than the player in my particular case, and I have something to grow into and play for years to come.
    I am not crazy about the strings that come on the bass. I am used to the LaBella Deep Talkin' Bass Black Nylon tape wrapped strings (.060-.115), and these Elixer round wounds (.045-.105) are just to bright for my tastes. Although they obviously are not broken in yet.
    As for dealing with Sweetwater itself, nothing could have been easier. I ordered the bass Saturday Oct. 26, 2013, it shipped Monday Oct. 28, and I had the bass on Wednesday Oct. 30 before noon. UPS delivered the package in good condition. Sweetwater had double boxed the bass with plenty of packing materials to avoid damage to the instrument, and it came out of the package in perfect condition and already tuned.
    I gave the bass 4.5/5 stars simply because NOTHING is perfect, although I have yet to find a flaw in my order.

    Definite steal for the price!

    I bought this bass here on Sweetwater to replace the bass I originally learned to play on, and I couldn't be happier.

    I had tried cheaper Ibanez basses at my local music store, but decided that the look and quality of the SR1200 was well worth the price. The first thing I noticed was how light this bass actually is. Compared to a Fender for example, you'll barely notice you've got it hanging around your neck while playing. Secondly, the neck is very thin and fast. As a converted guitar player this made the transition much easier.

    The gold hardware gives this bass a very sharp appearance. I kept getting asked about it by the members of the other bands at a recent gig. The built in Eq. allows for a lot of versitility and tone shaping for whatever your musical style is and the Nordstrand Big Singles sound incredible on both the low and high end, and everything in between. Just look up some reviews on them online and you'll see very positive opinions on them.

    Overall I'd recommend this bass (or any of the Ibanez Premium Series basses) to anybody looking for something different than a stock Fender Jazz or Precision, and you will definitely get the most bang for your buck with this purchase.
