See previous article, very good and very complete.
The Elixir brand strings.
The "scale length" is 35 ".
The neck is truly a revelation.
I am not an expert bass player, I have not tried many basses and this is only the second that I buy in my life, but frankly, the comfort of the handle speaks for itself.
It is very playable, so even in the last frets, through a deep cutting of the body.
The weight is quite big, normal to the solid mahogany, but it is well balanced.
I'm mostly in neck pickup with an adjustable on bass + +, and midrange and treble means.
My style of music these days is closer to what may Massive Attack for example, with rhythms somewhat slow and low "heavy" although this,
I go into a Boss Dr. Rhythm DR-880 "which has some simus bass, and then I go into the Zoom B2.1u used compressor, multi-effects, amp simulation and DI Box.
From there I returned to the table XLR balanced mix Xenyx X1622USB, which has preamps with adjustable compression.
I use it for four months.
What I like most is the comfort of the handle, and the look created by the burr walnut.
What I like least is the bridge pickup, not bad, but it is less my style of music and gaming
The price / quality ratio I think is excellent.
This bass is comfortable, beautiful, well constructed, with a good variety of sounds.
Its finish is neat, although it may be noted the inconsistency of an incision in the neck through the cavity to create dedicated to batteries (low active), and the fact that the door of the housing is fixed by two small screws that unscrew it each time you replace batteries.

niais's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made in Indonesia.
Neck through 35 "in 5 parts (Saddle / bubinga), rosewood fingerboard, mahogany body, poplar burl table.
2 microphones and electronic active Bartolini MK2 (Volume, Balance, Bass, Mid, Treble).
24 (best large) freight.
Lutherie excellent hardware too, not electronic height.
Book well some rule, with good strings.
The neck is wide (like a DB) but not pais, very very very fast.
This bass is more comfortable and faster than a Jazz Bass.
Slap it very naturally.
CASC to treble is perfect.
The interface is really good think is the most comfortable bass that I played on (Fender JB, PB, MusicMan, G & L, Thunderbird, Gretsch).
The EQ is against evil thought: the treble volume pot gives breath-stroke, the range of frequency drives medium rather too broad.
In acoustic sounds dj norm. Any bass rson and projects a powerful sound.
It sounds really full: good bass, low-medium rather that growl, attack presents and shine. Then the style of play and promotes the attack of its kind.
The microphones transmit correctly but does nothing more.
However I found dja all the sounds of my Jazz Bass, others more rock and also more modern sounds with the medium rather creuss.
Buy stroke heart after you try some low mountains in seeking a more rock. It is completely my expectations (which may be made lean my opinion).
I love its ergonomics, the fact that rson, its acoustic sound.
Due to its quality manufacturing it is worth more than 800!
Without EXAGRES I find better quality than Fender U.S. Deluxe, or the 3 MusicMan I've tried. 700 1000 for less!
At least Ibanez does not care about us.
But the choice of MK2 seems dictated solely by the economy, the bass deserves better and it is no longer MODEL micro to the same dimensions.
I would do even when this choice (for model DX with EMG).
