This is truly a boutique looking bass, with the abalone body binding and pearloid block fret markers. Neck is slim and fast, which the SR series are known for. Body is mahogany, which gives it a solid feel, but not too heavy. Feels just right and the contoured body makes it a snap to carry without getting shoulder fatigue. But the real secret behind the sound of this beast are the huge, alnico type pickups. They are passive, but you would never know it. They produce a massive wall of sound, especially if you have an amp to match up with it. I can only imagine what this would sound like with an SVT setup! The 2 band eq is more than enough to create a wide variety of sounds. Yes, it can produce the "extreme" metal sound as advertised, but it can also give you warm, supple tones as well. Such a diverse axe. I use the super light gage D'Addario XL 220's, which allow me to really bend the strings for effect. I've owned a number of good basses in my 33 years of playing, including the Fender P, MM Stingray, Ricky 4001. This baby stands right with them, if not better, as far as tone, comfort and playability. I would recommend that you take a serious look at this bass, it is a powerful, high quality well made axe. Oh yeah, I ordered this on a Thursday, and it arrived to me on the following Tuesday...from Oregon to North Carolina! Thanks Musicians Friend for a great deal and prompt, well packaged shipping!
This is actually the second SRX bass that I've owned (bought a 390 model in 2006). Due to hard times, I had to sell that 2 years ago, but things are better now and I've saved up to buy this beast on close-out. I bought the Royal Blue model for a great deal. What a steal! Must have been one of the last ones because I didn't see it listed the day after I received mine. Otherwise, you pay a little more for the black or white model. Ok, to the review. This bass just looks stunning. I love the abalone binding and pearloid block fret markers. The neck is slim and super fast. I've always been fond of the unfinished oiled maple necks, you can really fly up and down the fretboard. The body is mahogany, which is a bit weightier than the 390, which had a basswood body. Still, this is a comfortable, lightweight bass which won't ruin your shoulders. But what really motors this beast are the 2 giant alnico type humbucker pups. They produce a monster sound...very high output. With the 2 band active eq, you can really dial up some tasty tones. I believe this is stringed up with the Elixir Nanowebs. I've always been fond of the D'Addario XL 170's, but for now the EN's will do. When I plug this into my Behringer 120 amp with a 15"...it produces a very warm, punch and presency sound. Again, the 2 band eq is more than enough to give you just about any sound frtom extreme metal to mellow jazz tones. In my 34 years of playing, I've owned the Ric 4001, Fender-P, MM Stingray, Kramers, and Yamaha's. The only bass that can match this with punch and power was an older Kramer DMZ 4000....a late 70's bass. Take a serious look at this bass, you won't regret it! Thanks to this site for a great deal and fast shipping.
Features:Nothing over the top on this Ibanez SRX47 basic volume, pickup blender, treble, and bass knobs. The active pickups not only push the power of this bass past the Fender P and J basses, but they give a sound richer than any other name brand I've played. The front/back pickup blending knob gives a wide range of sound that could be produced from the highest quality of bass guitars. The pickups even feature a nice groove perfect for thumb placement. Neck is slim and fast; enough said. The body binding is a little funky looking...but I personally like it. It clashes with the body and fretboard, bringing an old school flair to a modern style.Quality:Astounding. Absolutely nothing wrong with the bass, which should be expected. Everything is great...each string pickup has consistent output. No dulled or muted sounds anywhere on the bass. This bass can obtain a honky sound which is great for slapping, can give a deep groove for staying in the pocket and pushing the rest of the band forward, and can support a plethora of other sounds in between.Value:If this bass isn't picked up immediately, it is a huge miss. It provides exquisite sound at a low, clearance price. Both Ibanez and Musician's Friend have stayed true to their low price, high quality standards here.
