3-band EQ (low, mid, high), balance and volume controls.
The first time I tried it out the neck felt as slim as a guitar neck. It was not the first time I had this feeling with an Ibanez bass guitar. But with a bit more experience I can say that the neck is not so slim.
It's very comfortable and your hand moves smoothly along it.
The sound is its main advantage: the Bartolini pickup and electronics provide ultra-high signal level!
I previously had Fender and Musicman but I don't have enough money anymore to buy such models, and considering that I already had a Mexican Fender, which had an average quality, I decided to buy something different and I'm not disappointed because it sounds alright.
I play with a five watt Roland Microbass amp... but it's five real watts!
I get my favorite sound turning the the lows to max. and the mids and highs 3/4 of the way. The resulting sound is exactly like I like it, with some emphasis on the low end.
I like every sound this bass makes.
I've owned this bass guitar for three weeks. I previously tried out different instruments: a Mexican Fender Precision Special (very bad), A Squier JB Antique Burns (even worst),
a Yamaha BB614 (quite good but its scale was too short and it was too heavy).
I bought this bass directly at a store because I just can't bring myself to buy a stringed instrument on an online shop!
You must first play a bass before buying it! And we must support physical retail stores because they are the ones you can bring your instrument to when you have a problem.
I give it a 9 in all aspects, even though this bass guitar is worth a 10, but just in case you find a small defect!

Fendor's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Low electric force, neck-five spices Saddle / bubinga 24 frets (medium). Walnut table
Two Bartolini MK2 countrv, electronic active 3-band Bartolini
Knobs: a cut / boost bass, same sharp, same middle, a volume gnral, a micro balance
Trestle bridges individual books with elixir strings.
For this price it is hard to have the best (my opinion ...)
The finishes are nikel, not a collar that Exceeds the wood body is beautiful, you feel even the veins in your fingers ...
I put 9 because I still think they could find another place for the battery in the handle in the open driver ...
I tried a 4500 BTB dernire the Anne, and the handle had a little too much waste "tank" my taste. MODEL In this, the handle has compltement t overhauled, and it is a joy, the highs come out alone, and we dplace really easy on this little gem ...
Gnrale good ergonomics, good balance, both sitting and standing. Not heavy for a penny ...
It sounds good and not connected, and that's a good dj.
I plugged into my Ashdown MAG 300, and the beast shows its full extent ...
You can do everything with the knobs to make legalization trs great job, the pramp Barto is so powerful that it would almost afraid to bourrines the ropes .. (O of the nine, it is still a bit to dconcertante dpart ...)
The sound is round or slamming a choice, after a few minutes, you get the power of the bass, and you can easily find his son ...
I play mainly heavy rock, but I have a little test with all styles of play (fingers, slap, but not mdiator, each his own) and arrive quickly be satisfied trs ...
In rsum trs versatile without being dpourvue Character ...
I tried many before MODELS, and frankly, I would do without hsiter this choice, the only BMOL dfonce this is really for the stack in the middle of the handle through (l if someone one can explain to them what comes to mind at ibanez ...)
J'viterai however, advise the beginners, because even when it is somewhat difficult to tame dpart ...

son1k's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made in Indonesia, 24 frets, 2 passive pickups and active EQ Bartolini MK2 bridge monorail knob 1 volume, 1 Tone 1 major, medium, with an acute blocking repere normal / boost, a mechanical oil bath. Channel 5 parts maple / bubinga pitch 35, marshes frne wings for the body, covered with walnut on the face.
For me the perfect combination!
The handle?? Where? Is a handle??! A yes espce this long paper I kiffer? Yes enjoyable super, super fine, super fast, trademark Ibanez. Despite a tuning fork 35 which is a shooting gaps (I do not have very long finger is vrait). each access to acute and royal grace to handle travairsant, airgonomie good but small problem (no pun hoho! course) I wear my bass strap ass high and I hit the horn to the top m'apuis on the thorax through nothing to either. It is a bit heavy as it is better to have a good wide strap or reimbursement. 3 band EQ is great and his desire to obtain the rotation knob.
Personally, I do funk (mostly slap), fusion, soul and a bit of metal, it's a seri! It should be a delight it is to ride in style while imprssionant! I play a little of BK100 Hughes & Ketner and a multi effects me20B boss is fine a bit of a compressor, a can of medium and slap yourself! and if I remove all the I's a great round and very clean. It halusinante a power! Normal view is that both batteries in the little box ^ ^. The sound and strength.
Its must be 6 months I have purchased what is left ^ ^). Here as in weird, has a maximusic Vallor! I recommend a shop to anyone, very pro! thank you guys! I love the look, the sonic possibilities and the handle can be except the pitch 35 which is an annoying but it can very quickly if abitue. I already tried Cort (c its not the same ^ ^), the cousin of my musicman (buche sleeve too for me), the yamaha, the fender, but the bass and pure turie! Pay our friends maximusic to 600 and dust (I really know: s) ca not worth it .... its worth more for the quality and sound of the violin. But I would not make the choice ... Memme I took the 5 cord Memme but I come !!!!! ^ ^ maximusic (9.75 as there are no notes?)

What country does she makes? (United States, Japan, Mexico, France ...) How many frets, what kind of micro and their configuration and what type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...) what are the rglages (Volume, Tone s micro drive ...) and what type of race? *
Low assembled in Indonesia, 24frets I think (I admit to not having counted micro Bartolini mkII + electronic of the same name, floyd bridge, rglage theft, blc, and serious mdium, acute, race driver.
The handle is it enjoyable? Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy? Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)? Do you get good sound easy? * ...
trs round enjoyable to play well fingers gliding, bass a bit heavy going but without a xagration, you get the sound to perfection is the 3-way + rglage qie good job
Appropriate are your style of music? With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play? What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "fat", .. ..) what are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
this bass + a home in the rock or slap (hence the disign) but few go to jazz also has a design even if it is not silent conus in this sense, the I have nothing to say its the ngatif must say that before I try to buy it with a lot of MODEL fender mex a real stew.
How long you use it and what is the particular feature you like best and least? Have you tried many other models before acqurir? How do you report qualitprix ? With the exprience, you do again this choice? * ...
I use it for January 09, what I like about this bass is beautiful and has the mouth that you'd almost want to hang on the wall dco!
yes I would at ease again if I had the choice of a 4 c buy another
