Just to set the record straight I own a 1977 Rickenbacker 4001 model bass. I also own a 1998 Fender American Deluxe Precission bass. I as well have the Ibanez srx700. I prefer to Ibanez over the other 2 hands down. With a fast neck and clear punchy sound it is a versitle instrument. I do a lot of slap playing and it handles that well and sounds like a dream. I would have paid triple for a bass like this. I am glad I did not have to at the time I paid for it. If any one out there is reading this and debating seriously about getting this bass, do yourself a favor and buy it. You will be more than happy you did!!!
This bass is Very nice. Due to the humbuckers it has a nice, low end, growl that sounds very good if you play rock. You can use it's onboard eq to dampen the growl and it sounds pretty suitable for jazz. I have used this bass to play everything from rock and metal, to jazz and showtunes, this thing does it all! It's neck Is REALLY thin, which is a hit or miss. Some people like thin necks because it's "fast" but others may find it a bit uncomfortable. I myself like it. The only downside is the price. sure it's a great bass, but $700 is a bit steep. Luckily, I got mine used for about $400, so if you can find one used or you're willing to fork over the cash, it's a great sounding and playing bass
I have owned this guitar for about 6 years now. I love it! It was the first "good" bass that I've ever owned. I purchased it because it resembled a Fodera Monarch (to me at least, at the time). The action was set perfect! I put an aguliar OBP-3 on it, and WOW! I have recieved nothing but complements on my sound. The neck plays like butter! So nice and smooth, and slap bass sounds great... even with dead strings! I have bought MANY basses since, trying to find something I liked better... NOPE. The SRX700 is still by far my favorite. I can play all styles on it with ease. I use this one now for my "show-off" bass. Tapping and double thumping all are played with ease on this bad boy.This bass will not disappoint! I love it! It sounds good through ALL of my amps (SWR, Ampeg SVT-VR, Hartke, Kustom, Carvin BX1200), even plugged straight into a sound board through a house system!I have played (and own) Schecter, Dean, Washburn, Gibson, Warwick, Spector, Fender, Modulus (you get the point) and non have pleased me as much as the SRX700. Just make sure you get the guitar set up when you get it... don't forget the OBP-3, trust me on that one!
I have just acquired a Honey Sunburst SRX700. I deducted 2 points from features because #1 the output jack is located in just the right spot to interfere with using a standard guitar stand without putting undue strain on the jack or cable connector. The second point was deducted because there is no dedicated midrange control. I've found that moving the pick up selector pot varies the midrange sound a bit. Thank goodness my amp has a graphic eq. I deducted 1 quality point because the model number/serial number is painted on the back of the headstock. Otherwise this is an extremely well made solid instrument. Overall this is an exceptional value with active EQ, neck-through construction and more. I'll put up with the annoying jack location. A quiet gigable bass bargain! Nice pickups & heavy bridge too!
I own this bass and absolutley love it!!! It plays LIKE BUTTER!!! Very smooth great tone. The neck-through-body gives excellent sustain. Solid bridge and great pick-ups. A very well constructed bass. KUDOS TO IBANEZ!!!
I was a bit skeptical when ordering a new guitar off the Internet. I like to play it before I buy it. I had read so many reviews, though; on this particular bass I figured that I would try it. It came ready to play with a nice set of Elixir strings (which are awesome) and it was ready to play. I plugged into my Ampeg B4R and pro series 410 cab and I instantly fell in love. I love this more than my Warwick. The active electronics on board give awesome equalization and excellent tone. I definitely recommend this bass.
I bought myself a srx700 bout' two years ago and i havent looked back. i will probably never buy another bass it plays as good as a washburn, and that's sayin a lot.
It's got great features and is very loud. The neck-through is great because I can actually reach the high frets on the low strings whereas I couldn't as easily on my bolt-on Ibanez soundgear. The humbuckers get rid of hum and put out a lot of sound, and the EQ is great and simple.
From the first time that I picked this beast up I did not want to put it down. It has a great sond and feel. I have a EDB600 by Ibenez now and this is the only bass that I have found that I like better. It's just a great bass.
Dude, this bass rules. I've had it for over a year now and have had no problems with it. it's got that punchy punk style tone or even that smooth jazz stlye tone depending what settings you have it on.
