Great bass, Great service
After playing starter and mid-level Ibanez bass guitars every week for 20 years, I finally bought my dream bass. Now I wonder why I waited so long. This bass is beautiful, but the sound is remarkable. The ovangkol top and single coil pick-ups of the SR1205E give a full, fat tone right out of the box. The bridge isolates the strings to minimize cross-string noise while maximizing sustain. The weight is well-balanced so your hands are free to just play. This was my first experience with Sweetwater and I was impressed with their personal level of service. There were pictures of this bass in their gallery so I was able to see the grain and finish before ordering. My experience with Sweetwater was so pleasant that I ordered the Boss GT-10B from them the next week and they make an excellent pair.
