      Comments about Ibanez SR755 5-String Bass Guitar:

      My first 5-string. Been a professional 4-string bassist for 30+ years (rock/metal). This bass is wonderful, easy to play, great sound, and easy to play in a variety of styles. I have mostly used it to record, but it is now one of my go-to basses (I have several dozen basses). I definitely plan to use it to play out and think it will bring a new dimension to the bands I play with.

          Great to be able to "fix" my tone with the on board EQ w/o even going back to my amp. As a singer and bandleader I need to maximize my time at the mic and can't be fiddling with my amp all night. Love this thing. Looks great and not too heavy but heavy enough.

            Comments about Ibanez SR755 5-String Bass Guitar:

            I bought this beauty back while it was a limited run in 2008. After its success they decided to keep making the model with certain refinements- the tapered fretboard and the mid-boost switch. The price I payed was cheaper than the new ones, but the value you get out of these things is worth a bass double the price.

            The EQ offers amazing versatility that none of my other basses can compare to. The mahogany/walnut combination is both visually stunning and gives you a great range of rich lows to crisp and clean highs. The oiled neck finish is incredibly smooth- easily one of the fastest and most comfortable necks I've felt.

            I play a mixture of everything, mainly jazz fusion, funk, hard rock, and some metal. With the amazing tonal range I get from this bass, I can manage to find the right sound for every need. For the price these go for, if this guy ever gets stolen I'll be hunting down a new one right away.

            Comments about Ibanez SR755 5-String Bass Guitar:

            I'm a novice on bass but I've been a guitar player for 15+ years in a variety of semi-professional bands ranging from just-for-fun projects with buddies to gigging cover bands. A good friend of mine from one such band is looking to sell me his used SR755 for a sweet deal because he spent his tax return on a killer Modulus and doesn't need this one any more.

            Anyway I've always been impressed with the SDGR series of basses in general in terms of bang for your buck and I've REALLY enjoyed this particular model from the several hours I've logged on my buddy's specimen.

            As far as Pros I'll say it definitely balances really well on the shoulder, is nice and light weight so it won't wear you out, it has a nice snappy response and action and for this price the tone and electronics can't be beat. It even sits in the lap well if you do a lot of practicing sitting down.

            For Cons I will say that the fretboard radius is a little too flat, the neck a little too thin, and the strings spaced a little too close together for my personal tastes. But I'll adjust my technique (which isn't exactly world-class anyway) and learn to deal with these specs. I listed these as Cons, but to some folks these same attributes could be plusses. My friend's hands are a little smaller than mine so I'd assume anyone in that boat would feel right at home on this instrument.

            For the price I think this is a fantastic instrument that plays comfortably, sounds great, gives you plenty of options, is decently built, and is a real looker too. Sure if you're used to the look and feel of an old J-Bass this instrument might not suit you. But if you're looking for something versatile that'll be a workhorse for you in a variety of settings and genres you can do a lot worse than the SR755. You'll have a hard time finding much in the <$1K range to match this baby. Can't wait to get mine next week!

            Absolute Perfection: Ibanez SR755

            By alan solano

            from Natchez MS

            Comments about Ibanez SR755 5-String Bass Guitar:

            If you like a thin body, and a thin neck on your guitars this is perfect. It's not a Fender, but it doesn't advertise to be one. For my play style it's perfect.
            Basic 3 band Eq layout, and everything functions as advertised. As for the sound, its excellent. Its a simple layout but this bass doesn't try to be a carvin with a billion different volume and tone knobs.
            Outragesouly beautiful guitar. I've played Warwicks, Carvins, Conklins, and i'd take this bass over the aforementioned all day.
            Smidgen pricey, but for the build and sound quality you get it can't be beaten.

            What an amazing Bass!

            By zildjianrocks

            from Los Angeles, CA

            Comments about Ibanez SR755 5-String Bass Guitar:

            If on first look, you liked this bass, just go for it. Don't even hesitate. Its a high quality instrument for its price.
            3-Band EQ - Simply superb. Amazing response with the knobs. They even have mild locks exactly halfway through so that you know when you are at the neutral level. The knobs feel nice and solid and indicate the quality of the build.

            Two-way Mid Freq. Switch - Again I was surprised at the difference in sound at the flick of this switch. One flip can give your mid range frequencies that extra boost.

            Finish - Ok the picture pretty much gives you an idea. But I would like to add that the actual instrument finish is not THAT glossy/oily. It does have a faint gloss, which in my opinion is much better than how it appears in the picture.
            This is solid instrument. It feels light, but its extremely well built and feels nice to just hold. Finish is awesome and the gold colored hardware adds some serious class to the instrument. Fretboard is fantastic, action is superb and neck is smooth. Quality is a definite 10 on this instrument.

            The only thing I don't like would be the stock strings. The manual says they're Elixir strings. In my opinion they are way too bright and makes the instrument sound more like a guitar than a bass even with the treble knob all the way down. I would recommend changing your strings.
            It is a pricey bass, but you will get more than what you pay for. Considering the fact that there are basses twice as expensive which sound only marginally better than this one, its a killer deal in terms of value

            this is one of the best looking and playing basses i've ever seen. i was able to set the action super low without any fret buzz and it sounds amazing live! i've got so many compliments on this bass!
            bass, mid, treble and mid selector switch....what else do you need?
            top notch. i wouldn't expect less from ibanez
            one of the best values out there.

            Nice bass

            Comments about Ibanez SR755 5-String Bass Guitar:

            I sold my first 5 string bass, which happened to be my second bass ever, back in 2007. It was an Ibanez SR505, and I loved that bass, wish to this day I'd never sold it. Over the last few years, I tried a lot of basses, to include a lot of Warwicks because of their tone. In the end, I decided to sell the stable of basses I'd accumulated and go back to what I knew I'd love. Nothing against other basses, but Ibanez's just tend to suit me better with their string spacing and comfortable necks. I went with the SR755 because I absolutely love the finish on it, it's just fantastic. The maple center really brings out a musical quality that some of the other SR series don't have. The new stable of Ibanez basses also have that switch that goes from Low-Mids to High-Mids to help with cutting through the mix, and although difficult to hear in a solo environment, it makes a big difference when applied to the mix. I got mine from GC and it had a HORRIBLE SET UP, but it was still a great bass. I brought it to a local shop and had it set up with Rotosound Swing 66 roundwound strings, and this bass is absolutely fantastic now! Easy to play, nice tight string spacing and great pickups. It could be a lot more versatile with the electronics, and I'll probably eventually replace them with US made Bartolini pickups and preamp. But for now, and for the price range of this instrument, they do quite well. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this bass. The string spacing may be a bit tight for those who like to do a lot of slapping, but it's not bad IMO, and it suits fingerstyle as well as picking quite well. Hopefully this review is helpful to those who are interested!

            Excellant Bass

            Comments about Ibanez SR755 5-String Bass Guitar:

            Bought this Bass to accompany my 4 string Ibanez Bass which I've played for years. Figured I would be switching between the 2 of them... Well unfortunately I haven't touched the 4 string since I got the SR755. The SR755 played great right out of the box! Used it for recording a couple of nights later and the sound was perfect. The engineer commented how great this bass sounded. Will probably use the 4 string for any drop D tunings, but for now play the SR755 for anything else. In the past I never would have bought an instrument online without playing it first however, I bought it on sale from this site and am extremely happy with this purchase.

            Versatility

            By Smokescreens

            from Portland, OR

            Comments about Ibanez SR755 5-String Bass Guitar:

            Just got this gorgeous bastard in a week ago and have thoroughly put it through its paces ever since at live shows covering everything from jazz standards, R&B, hard rock, even some strange @$$ experimental music.It held its own with my Custom Fender J's, proving itself to be far more versatile than them thanks to that excellent preamp and the fact that its a tonewood frankenstein. Maple (center block, I cant understand why they dont list this), wenge, mahogany, walnut, and bubinga? The frequency range is amazing. The jatoba neck is both smooth and strong feeling.I highly recommend this model for anyone looking for a modern sound or in need of a versatile instrument that can cover a lot of bases. The build quality was excellent (bridge routing could be tighter but this isn't an issue tone wise, or visually to be perfectly honest), and mine didn't require much by way of set up out the box.Ibanez definitely takes care of the working man with this one.
