While waiting for the second church service to finish so I could collect my Ibanez SR300DX bass and Hartke bass attack from the stage, I was checking out Facebook and a post from Ibanez appeared with a picture of this bass in the autumn fade metallic finish. I was hooked on the color, reminded me of the color of my bike when I was a kid. Ordered this bass that night. Besides the awesome finish, the sound out of this bass is great. It's the best of all worlds. Single coil, humbucker and with the power tap, a really close sound to a p-bass pickup. With the old bass, had to use the bass attack to get a decent sound out of the practice amp, not with this bass. If your looking for a new bass and don't want shell out a lot of cash, then get this bass. If you're just looking for a bass to use in the home recording studio then get this one. Also, if you are primarily a guitar player, then you'll like the neck on this bass. Order this from Sweetwater, good service and well packed when shipped. Also, this bass is strung with D'Addario strings, so no need to change out strings and it was set up perfectly. Intonation was spot on and there's no buzzing.
