I bought this bass at Long and Mcquade for $700(Canadian). I bought it cause I wanted to get a better bass than the one I had.
I liked the overall sound. You can change the sound to more muffled tones to thumping kick drum tones. The feel of the neck was great too. The neck was very thin considering it is a 5 string bass.
The active pickups are awesome!!!
I didn't disklike it at all....
The construction was very good. The neck is a bolt on and the body is made of luthite.
The quality was very good and I am happy i bought it.
This bass is great for beginners or experts.
I strongly recommend it
I got this bass from a local used music store for an amazing $350. I personally thought this was a good deal, consitering the fact that at the time, the list price for one of these was nearly $850. So, i bought it asap!
THIS GUITAR IS AWESOME. i would recomend it for anyone who can find it, and has the money. It comes with 2 nice active pick-ups that are GREAT for slap-bass. Everything about it is great. The neck has no fret buzzes at all, which is something i'm very picky about. I don't know if it came this way, or adjusting was done, but it is nice. It's a 24-fret. it's got a REALLY good tuning system on it. i tune it for 15 seconds before a gig, and i'm good to go for the whole show. my own personal touch to this ax was to add an extra higher (c) string to it, instead of the conventional extra lower (b) string like is found on most 5-string basses. this enables you to have a better range for slapping, which i'm quite fond of. The design and color, and play-a-bility of this bass are amazing. everyone should defenetly try one out!
Theres nothing i don't really like much about it. when i bought it, it had a big crack in it in the back, which i didn't care too much for. Let's see here.. um.... nope, not really a whole lot wrong with it. you can play just about any style of music with it, it has a total of 6 knobs, 4 of which are for tone, and you can do whatever u want!
The construction was good, everything was nice. the only downfall is that if theres a chip in it, the color under the paint is a yellowish color, and it's hard to cover up.
This is a great bass, from beginner up to expert, i recomend it for anyone. try one out!
Origin: Made in Taiwan
24 frets 2 Soapbar pickups type of ibanez
cot electronics: volume, balance, treble, mid, and bass SETTING THE frquence the cutoff mdium.
Ibanez 5 string handle driver
Channel enjoyable and fast ... despite being a little too round (I prefried handles fairly flat)
Access in good shape thanks acute
good ergonomics despite the use of luthite it is heavy but not as a Lespaul.
great versatility in the sounds ... big sound metal to slap his grace electronics.
I chose it for its versatility (industrial rock to metal and rock)
I used to play the Police as well as paradiselost.
rglages are my bcp mdium and few acute. ibanez micro resents the grave if not too serious !!!!!!!
I have been using versatility 2001.Look gnial sounds but I think a change of pickups by EMG might be better because the pickups are Ibanez but the minutes of the 5th string could be better.
it is the catalog of ibanez! Snifff
for résumé, except smicros that are a bit limited for playing Death (this drool too!) is the bass that I love!

The bass is enjoyable play off set the weight that I find excessive.
The handle is accessible along its entire length aisment.
Rglages at the sound, it's not empty! There are many possibilities and it takes a while to get used to coping.
The bass has a sound trs versatile and can be used in all musical styles.
I bought "by chance" (a music store bankruptcy) 6 years ago a prize dfiant all concurrently.
I use it as low-relief concert. My main bass is a Musicman Stingray 5 so much that the Ibanez has not had a "rescue".
Personally, I find compliqueargler and use and a little heavy.
I Rasht in the same circumstances but I Achteras not new at full price.
