I acquired the ibanez bass guitar by referreeing lacrosse games, I bought it Giovanni Yamaha Music in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. As in walked into the store the resilient lacquer finish caught my eye I had originally been planning to be a Fender Jazz Bass, but was lured by the sheer unadulterated power and feel of this Bass Guitar. I bought the guitar for $750 Canadian

This Bass guitar has a neck with an amazing feel great for playing almost all styles of music. In addition, this five string is surprisingly great for a funkadelia and slap Bass which I am particular too. Similarly, the pickups give a great sound, and are active making agressive play, sound beautiful. The tone knobs give either a soft, soultry tone or a powerful abrasive sound. Also the playability of this guitar cannot be matched so for all you metalheads no need to worry about the inability to play quickly and powerful. The fretting on this guitar is great the frets higher give a hush hollow sound great for soloing.

The guitar has active pickups so it can be annoying to change the battery especially if you play often. Another dislike of mine on the topic of the SR405 is the cheap factory that are on the guitar when you buy it squeak like mice

The construction quality of this guitar is very good. Although the tuning pegs can be a little bit fussy. The input jack on this Bass is exquisite it will never fall out because it is but a hole in the guitar with nothing surrounding it.

If your playing in a band and want a professional level Bass for a reasonable price this is the Bass Guitar for you. It's maple neck rosewood fretboard, pearl dot inlays all make this Bass exquisite.This guitar is great for playing funk rock and metal because of its durability, playabilty and sheer power.
