It was 2 weeks after the New Year, and a buddy of mine and I were at Guitar Center. I was looking, but not to buy. Then I hear "Dude!" I see her (kinda shining there in holiness) I pick her up, played alitte. But what got me stuck was the price! $325 dollars! An Ibanez 6 string bass-never used, for #325! She became mine.
Made of a good sold oak, she's perfectly made to ride the palm of your hand. In looks wise, she classy but with a rock attitude. Jet black from top to bottom, flaws don't really excist on this bass.
You do got be more aware of a big bass moving around. I mean c'mon it's 6 strings! It's bulky, but you get use to it.
Ibanez makes great quality products. So far so good.
The deal of the centery. No one has placed this model on the review board yet. I feel kinda lucky about her. It still brings a tear to my eye.
Made in Korea, everything is said in the Previous post.
This low possde a good violin, however, only feature sleeves fans dishes, not the sleeves of "picks".
So the speed of play is excellent, low ropes cart allows chubby little hands to ensure as large!
The sound palette is not dmantielle, for that price you would have suspected but the sound is stunning gnral. Balance good mediums, prcis, hot, really nothing to do with the bass 10 years ago at the same price or more Chres.
Absolutely versatile, it is impressive slap, the sound is more typ Alain Caron, Marcus Miller, and it is really a quality thunder.
Ideal to play fusion, jazz rock, funk, I did not test in rock and mtal, but many followers of this style are over, so ...
I use an amp with EBS, a ARTKE and fit in a modern style, it's - say crystalline, punchy, and not fat, fuzzy and dull, right?
So at the sound, even if we can just play with this low, it is intended to groove fawn Caron, Patitucci, Primus, as well as soloing Obviously ( the chorus of Patitucci, we believe it is still more that work ...)
But I jou reggae and blues with no m'tre kicked out! The collgues have will appreciate the precision of her and her fawn "fit" into the overall sound.
I do not use it since I acquired Noguera, was going to do three years.
NRTEE it wisely on its stand and waits his acqureur Submitted (I do the dusts, it is niquel!)
I like its shape, its handle fast, versatile, which offsets a lack of personality hard to get the two for this price (I sell 300)
The only brand to rival Yamaha is, but it may be a little more expensive.
The report qualitprix is excellent, it was I who did it because I sell it!
I would do choose to buy Ibanez, as recently as last year with a BTB 6 string fretless used.
