Comments about Ibanez SR5000E Prestige Bass Guitar:

I've got the sr 5006eol

I've had my eye on this bass for a long time. It is an obviously beautiful bass, the tone is even more beautiful.

From a tone perspective, i like how it sounds when compared to the 500 series basses. I don't know if that sound difference equates to the price difference, but the aesthetics certainly do.

Cons: Neck radius

For some reason, ibanez changed the radius on this bass. The radius on their 4 and 5 string is consistent, however, the radius on the 6 is much larger. It took some getting used to for me, but i love this bass.

Pre amp:

the preamp isn't as hot as you would think it should be from a high end bass like this. If i'm not mistaken, you get something like +15db from each band. I've never felt the need to dial in more than 15db in a normal playing situation, but i like the comfort from knowing that it is there.

I've been playing bass since Feb 2003
I've owned an ibanez sr485, sr406 and a conklin groove tools with a custom shop neck (long story).

Rockin Bass!

Comments about Ibanez SR5000E Prestige Bass Guitar:

The sustain that you get from Menge/Bubinga is excellant. Bartolini pickips are the best!
I've had the SR5000E for almost a year have have no complaints. This bass delivers a punch that resonates clear and with heavy sound. Out of all that basses I've played over the last three decades, the Idanez SR5000E is the best!!
