        A Happy Camper

        Comments about Ibanez SR4000E Prestige Bass Guitar:

        I bought my SR4000E, in the Transparent Black, this past July 2011 and I'm still blown away at how ideal of a bass it is. I played a P bass I bought new in '68 and always liked the warm, smooth tone it delivered but I was limited on the bright, crisp tones in the Mid & Upper registers which some genres and tunes call for. With this SR I can dial up ANY tone I want; active Bartolini Pickups and EQ give almost unlimited tone control. Since it comes standard with the Elixir roundwounds, and the Black Tusk Mono-Rail IV bridge with locking saddles on each string, the first thing I noticed was the incredible sustain no matter where I am on the neck. The rock solid Mahogony body contributes to the sustain as well.

        Speaking of this SR's neck, another reason I decided on it was how narrow at the nut and how thin all the way up to the last fret it is. The playability is wonderful, especially since my hands aren't the largest nor my fingers the longest. So, sometimes on my P Bass, that was a challenge on high speed demanding songs. At the end of a 4-6 hour rehearsal or recording session, I could feel the extra demands on my fretting hand/arm. Not so with this SR. I also use a 5" wide leather strap that adds to the comfort level.

        This SR is truly a precision Japanese instrument in everyway and I am glad I did my research and got the Bass I can enjoy for the rest of my life. No, I'm not paid by Ibanez or Musician's Friend to sing this SR's praises, just a fellow bassist who appreciates honest feedback from other's who own and use these products so we can make a more informed decision based on experience, not just theory.

        Lastly, back in the late 60's and early 70's, I ran my P Bass through an Acoustic 360 "monster" that would peel the paint off the walls. Now, I use a GK MB210 Ultralite with a 410 Extension Cab. All of it fits in the back seat of my Hyundai Sonata; that's a welcomed change and my back loves it too.

        Ibanez SR4000 Prestige Bass

        By Gregory Bedrosian

        from Platte City, MO

        Comments about Ibanez SR4000E Prestige Bass Guitar:

        Really the pinnacle of bass guitars unless you want a boutique instrument and pay thousands more. The craftsmanship, tone, feel and playability of Ibanez SR 4000 truly distinguish it from other bass models who try to convince you their product is equal. It's like driving a Yugo and then a Lexus. Play one and I think you'll agree that the SR4000 prestige is a top-notch instrument for the discriminating musician.
        All the features offered on this instruments give the musician the flexibility to play any genre of music.
        Solid mohagony body, 5 piece Bubinga/Wenge neck with wenge fretboard. Top quality materials such as Gotoh tuners, Bartolini pickups and EQ system make this instrument stand out.
        Prices have risen in 2011 for this model but I still think it's a good value for the money.

        Comments about Ibanez SR4000E Prestige Bass Guitar:

        The SR4000E is, hands-down, the nicest bass I have ever played. I've had lots of basses before, and the only one that even came close to this was a Music Man; but even that wasn't as versatile. The neck is VERY thing. It allows a person with even small hands like me to reach over 4-5 frets depending on where I am on the neck. I purchased the transient black version of this bass. The pictures online do not do it justice. I was originally going to buy the SR5000, but I did not like the gold hardware. I decided to take a chance and go with this one. It was well worth it. The transient black gives it a hard rock look while still having a jazz appearance.I've played Ibanez basses in the past. The low to mid priced basses are alright, but I could always find other basses I liked better. This higher-end bass has no competition with other brands.I just wanted to take the time to say that I'm not paid by Ibanez or Musician's friend. If you'd like to ask me more about the bass, feel free to contact me.

        Comments about Ibanez SR4000E Prestige Bass Guitar:

        I have an older model I have owned for about 7 years. It was made before the Bartolinis came standard and it is my favorite bass I've ever played! The neck is super comfy and it feels great to play. Active electronics give a huge sound and you can get tons of sick slap, dub, funk, jazz, and metal tones. This is a great bass at a great value, and would be a sick addition if you are playing a passive p or j bass right now.

        Comments about Ibanez SR4000E Prestige Bass Guitar:

        This bass is beautiful,it sounds awesome and plays like a dream. The neck is very thin and fast, perfect for fast riffing and extended shows. No more hand cramps and I can play for hours. the variety of sounds this bass can achieve is impressive. I play in a cover band that spans the history of rock and this bass can play it all. The look is of quality and craftsmanship... definitely a head turner. I believe I have found the bass i will spend the rest of my life with...true love
