Hot looking, versital, light weight, and fast neck.
The Look - Everyone who see this bass is impressed with the hots looks. The purple flame top paints job, and parallel stripes on the back of the neck, get endless compliments.
The Sound - The 3 band EQ and active pickups give great versatility, If I need deep tone or punchy pop and slap, I can get what I need.
The Quality - It's an Ibanez, so it's a well made guitar. I have an Ibanez ST50 guitar that over 30 years old and still plays great, and I see no reason why this is not just as good. I did have a problem with one of the EQ pots, but Sweetwater replaced the guitar quickly, and the 2nd one was mint. They stand behind what they sell.
The Feel - It's has a thin body, It's light weight, with a thin fast neck that has 24 frets and it's so easy to play on. It has become my practice bass because of how thin and light it is, I take it everywhere. I also use it on all songs with lots of riffs especially high on the neck, the 24 frets, great cut away and thin neck made it perfect for those songs. I still love my Sterling Ray 34, but that bass is beefy and heavy, but has amazing sound quality. This bass was a great addition and sounds almost as good, costs less, and has a great comfortable feel.
