I bought this bass used, not from a retailer, but it was in immaculate condition. Typical of the SR series, the neck makes fast playing easy, but the SRX650's neck doesn't feel so thin that it'll snap if you squeeze too hard. It's thin and quick, but still feels like it has some substance. Certainly, a plus for me.
SOUND: The tone is bright and powerful; fantastic low end response while still offering clear mids and highs, all pretty balanced.
ELECTRONICS: The active pick-ups give it a lot of power; if you play with multiple basses through the same amp and channel, you'll likely want to lower your volume a bit when you plug this one in. The controls work pretty well and are very simple to use. The 3-way toggle makes it quick to go from a full, combined pick-up tone, to a funky bridge-only sound, or a neck-only sound, for a milky, warmer, beautiful tone, awesome for higher melodies. Personally, I prefer both pick ups balanced, and cranked up.
AESTHETICS: I have the natural gloss finish. It looks impeccable with the binding and gold hardware. Nothing has chipped, scratched or faded as far as I can tell, and it was pre-owned before my possession. So the finish and hardware seems durable in it's appearance, as well as function.
I would absolutely recommend this bass to some who wants a powerful, bright sound. My only complaint, really, is that it's almost too active, and louder than my other basses. It saddens me that Ibanez doesn't still produce this bass. Supposedly the SRA's are made to maintain some of the best characteristics of this bass, but I've yet to play one, so I can't attest to that.
I bought the red Ibanez SRX650. What a Deal! I love Ibanez Basses. They Give you the most bang for your buck. I had my heart set on a Fender Jazz, but this bass feels better and you don't have to buy a bass just because it says "Fender" on it. This is the second Ibanez bass I have owned and would buy another. Really powerful pickups, and you can tweek the EQ for a broad range of sounds. Nice finish, and a slim fast neck for easy playing. No Regrets. Ibanez Basses are a solid piece of gear.
This is pretty good active bass for the price. I've played many, many basses. And this, while may not sound like a warwick out of the box, can be made to sound like anything with the active EQ and 3 way pickup switch. I had to adjust the action out of the box, WAY TOO LOW, fret buzz everywhere. However, not a huge deal, and a great value for the price.
It took a really long time to get to me but other than the snail like shipping witch really has nothing to do with the bass besides that it stayed in one piece. The bass sounds really good, really nice tonal variety. Everything is perfect besides there is a bit of a buzz between the seventh and higher frets witch is a really easy fix. Grip it and rip it.
This Ibanez SRX650 Soundgear Electric Bass combines a punishing output power, simple-yet-total tone control, and a super-fast two octave neck-that is all set off visually by gold hardware and standout white neck and body binding. The exposed pole pieces on the ultra high output alnico magnet pickups and the EQBII 2-band EQ complement the open tones of the comfortable light ash body.
I have owned this bass for about 6 months, and I couldn't be happier with it. I got the natural finish, and it looks awesome. I never was a big fan of gold hardware, but it looks great with the natural finish. Also, I've read reviews of other brands of guitars with gold hardware that complained of peeling, chipping, tarnishing, etc. This bass has been exposed to a wide variety of temperature/humidity conditions over the past 6 months, and the gold hardware looks as good as it did out of the box.The tone of this guitar is amazing. The active pickups are very hot, and the EQ makes it possible to dial in any tone you want. The slim Ibanez neck is very playable. If you get used to this neck and pick up a Fender, it feels like you're playing a tree trunk.I get compliments on the look & sound of this bass everywhere I play it. It's the second Ibanez bass I've owned, and both of them are well-built, quality guitars.
This is my first bass that bought and I must say I love with a passion. The action is great and the sound is crisp and clean. I couldn't be happier.
