i bought this bass a year ago at a guitar center... and i was looking for a five string bass that was credible but also trust worthy. and Ibanez was my brand... this bass has a tough slim neck, with a light but VERY durable body... the volume,Single EQ knob,and tone knobs tend to come loose after a few months... but nothing that cannot be replaced or re-adjusted. it has great tone and low-end to help complement any amp or rig. i play my EDB out of a SWR-bass head W/ a Gallien Kruger 4x10 cabinet. it souinds great and is very durable. the one thing that i recomend is to purshase a form of strap locks and relocate the strap knob the the back of the upper "swoop". to Change the center of gravity...and to keep the strap-lock from ripping out of the body...trust me is happened 3 times with 3 different holes...over allits a sound,strong bass with many many reasons to keep playing it... one thing though...i run my edb thru a Boss EQ Pedal...to give the EDB that little extra "thump".
I bought one of these about a year ago. I fell in love with it at the music store having no idea it was designed for thumb-and-snap. I play mostly alternative and classic rock and can get anything from a well-rounded "Fender" tone all the way to hard-core metal with punishing bass, and yes, a bright, punchy thumb-and-snap tone too. Workmanship was first-rate and it has held up fine through its first year of gigging. The neck is very stable and plays easily even with .130 - .45 strings on it. Mine may not have exactly the finish shown here; on mine you can see the wood grain through the satin black finish and it is just gorgeous close-up.Pros: extremely versatile tone, light weight, no dead notes, low action.Cons: the B-string is a bit less strong-sounding than the others although there are no dead spots. The one-knob ?Phat EQ? control boosts or cuts both low bass and high treble at once; however it still works well when used along with the traditional passive tone control. Output is very high and has no audible noise or distortion and the battery lasts a long time.
I've been playing bass for 5 years. I've tried almost every brand from bc rich to fender, and this ibanez is the best I've owned!! The tone is great theres no fret buzz. The weight and neck are perfect for players of any ability or age, and the price is just right!!
I play bass in a metal band and after going through a few different axes that were in the same price range, I happened upon the edb405. The first time I played it, it blew me away. Now, every time I need a bass in my hands, its the only one I want.
