    Sustain .... you need to sustain?

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    The full description is available on site ... google is your friend! (At least for research in this sense ....)

    Fabroqué asia ... but with a quality finish which suggests that quality control is done (we Ibanez anyway)

    In this regard the holding of agreement is im-pe-ca-tion!

    UTILIZATION

    In any pickup configuration, we get almost any sound that is sought, thank you to the electronics that boost what you want.

    The only things missing even

    The handle is very nice, rather late for a 5 string, as everyone does not have hands the size of those of a lumberjack ...

    SOUNDS

    Resolutely modern, this coffee has an almost infinite sustain so it resonates, it forces the palm muting but what happiness in the long notes ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I prefer to sustain the variety of sounds and punch for the price!

    I do not like .... nothing o)

    Bought it in Greece at local Ibanez dealer for 320 Euros... Great price for a bass like this! Really liked an older one from Ibanez (765JM). Terrific color! Anyway, I just got this one which is about two times cheaper and looks like it. Actually, I needed a 4-stringer but I went for a 5-er just because I liked the pickups more! (hmm, intelligent choice :-))

    In my opinion, it's one of the best (if not the ONE) in this price range. Comfortable, nice action, attack, sound. At first it sounded a bit tinny, but that can always be tweaked... Nice black finish and LOOOOTS of room for experimentation (both musically and technically).

    Don't like the Bass-Boost. And the rest of the electronics in there. It does need a small fix here and there - nothing a layman can't do... I've already replaced most of the nickel hardware with black parts. Also planning to change ALL of the electronics.

    Everything works fine out-of-the-box. Nothing has gone wrong until now, but that's mainly because I treat it like a child ;-) (practicing-too young to have one).

    As I said, it has to be your main consideration for a 5-string bass in the 300-400$ price range. Great job from Ibanez! 2 thumbs and 2 toes up.

    From Guitar Center for $375.00, as I wanted to add a 5-sting to my sound.

    The best thing about this bass, is it's "feel". Great balance, great look, easy tapered neck and fretboard. For an entry level 5-string, this baby is awesome. Has an active EQ, with BASS BOOST, which can give some awesome tones on the B and E strings. Two seperate volume controls (one for each "soapbar" pickup), and a single tone knob. This ax can be played for jazz, country, metal, WHATEVER! Plus, it only comes in black. WAY cool...

    My only real complaint is that, while the bass boost is awesome, it only boosts the extreme bottom end. Some boost of the tone for the mids as well, would have made this bass, p…

    My only real complaint is that, while the bass boost is awesome, it only boosts the extreme bottom end. Some boost of the tone for the mids as well, would have made this bass, perfect. Then again, it probably would have made it about $1000.00 as well! No complaints about color. Classic black is perfect. One of only two colors that ANY bass should be (the other being natural wood). Also, the battery for the active EQ is just too much of a pain to get to, especially if you need to make a quick change. Otherwise, I HIGHLY recommend this baby.

    Classic 5-string set-up, but on a more easy to use scale. Double-sided headstock, tapered neck, and a basswood body. Has two large "soapbar" humbuckers, and a high-gloss finish. In terms of quality, mine is almost two years old, is regularly played, and has had NO problems. It also stays is tune very nicely.

    If you are looking for an entry level 5-string, or even a new one to add to your arsenal, PICK THIS UP!

    I paid $422 for this bass and a hard shell case. I got it at Goodwins Music in Elida, OH

    Everything...the action is great, the sound is awesome and the PHAT Boost is a very nice thing to have when your best friend is shreding his balls off on a solo

    I cam't think of a thing i dont like

    The construction is very solid and i have not had a problem with it yet

    I would recomend this bass to everyone looking to upgrade to a better bass from a beginner bass
