    This guitar is sweet. A bit hard to find, thank Odin for Craigslist.

    Fast neck, nice frets, pickups sound full (especially the mid). Build feels solid. The only egregious issue is the neck dive, but I've heard adding fishing lead weights in the electronics bay helps a lot. Off to try that.

    Its a great bass with wonderful sound and tone. But the strap holders are on the back and the bottom, which makes it lean forward a bit when standing with a strap. I found it to be annoying. It's also very very top heavy. You have to hold onto the neck while standing or the input will smack you in the face. Its great if youre sitting down, but i tend to stand in an onstage setting

    pickups

    By mr. fixit

    from Rolling Hills Estate, CA

    The bass player in my band had one of these, and the pickups fell in on his. I had to fix it twice, once for each pickup (u know how helpless bass players are). Anyway, watch out for that, other wise, even with the pickup fallen in they sound awesmoe

    Yea, Its pretty good

    By Anonymous

    I start off first by saying that I ordered this bass off this website and it doesn't match the picture. The bass I got is more of a dark red-ish orange burst that quickly fades to black on the edges. Not that the color really matter, I didnt even notice until I went back to the site. Like everyones siad the neck dives, that sucks. But its about the sound, music is like painting and the guitar like the brush so pick something your comfortable with, that allows you to express yourself. The color really wont limit creativity will it? As for sound it can be switched from bright to bottom heavy and it handles both well.

    WOW!

    By i_love_ESP621234

    from Scottsdale, AZ

    I saw this at guitar center and new that I had to try it out. The pickups, bridge, etc.. are actually dark gold, not that ugly silver in this picture. Its probably ten times better than the other revews say. However, the srapholder things are in totally rediculous places(behind the nec and under th little edge). Other than that this bass looks and plays great, but it dosnt fit my style so im gonna go with an ESP F-100.

    BEST BASS EVER!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I got this two months ago and have played it every day since. My friends were blown away by the look of it, with the unique shape and gold hardware, and by the incredible tone. There's not a better buy on the market.

    Amazing!

    By IB4ever

    from San Diego, CA

    This bass kicks butt! The picture on the website does it no justice! It's even better looking in person! The sound is incredible! When I plugged it into my amp, which was set on 2 at the time, it still rattled the windows! The power of this bass is unbelievable! It is also a very easy bass to play. I highly recommend this bass to anyone!

    Good Bass for the Cash

    I bought this with a coffin case and couldn't go wrong. My wife said it looks cheap. She's used to my $1000. dollor Basses .I agreed. Then I played it and liked what it was sounding like. I see everyone complain about the neck diving. I own a thunderbird Gibson if you playted one you know what to expect. Just by a nice Leather Strap and problem is solved it's that easy. Don't buy a cheap strap.

    Pretty good bass for the price.

    By Dirk-uVf8G

    from Torrington, CT

    I tested this bass against a Fender J-Bass of the same price. The tone from the Ibanez was definately a lot better than the Fender. When I first played the bass, sliding around and playing on the fretboard was super-easy. The only downfall was the action was way too low. I had to get the neck adjusted and adjust the bridge (which was an easy do-it-yourself process).Overall, the bass is great, not to mention it looks damn good. However, it's hard to find a case to fit it if you don't want to buy the Ibanez case made for it. I ended up having to get a coffin case.

    This One Rocks

    This bass has an awesome feel, it's great for using your fingers but I will say that if you are a bass player who likes to slap/pop the high end is a little off.

    Iceman Rules!

    By Hacknifier

    from Charlotte, NC

    First of all, the other reviews are negative toward the heavy neck that makes the bass take a nose dive when you let go of it....not true. What makes it do that is the placement of the strap button on the back of the bass behind the neck. Move it to the back of the the top of the horn and you can strap it on and let go and it sits just perfect. Also, people don't like the low action.....that's what the truss rod is for...loosen it a little at a time until the action is to your liking. This bass is rediculous for the money....total 70's, the knobs, the old logo, sweet neck, solid mahoghany body, and super light....twice as light as my American P-bass, and the sound of the mini-humbucker pickups is outstanding, not to mention how cool it looks!! If you like this bass and it's in your price range, buy it and move the strap button and you'll love it.

    Very classy!

    By the ripper-1k10Y

    The wide neck has some amazing low action. I was tried to find a drop-out buzz, but this pup held on tight. Strap buttons could be better located especially if you play other basses in the gig. I'm hoping to see a little more rocked up finish, like the guitar version. But I like it and I will be owning it very soon.

    bad ass bass

    By patfiki

    from medfordlakes, NJ

    This is a really cool bass I've had this bass about a year and only one bad thing has happened and thats cause I left it at my friends house and next time I saw it one of the pickups fell into the bass but that only cost me $15 I think the only problem I found other than the pickup was the neck is heavy so don't strap it on and let go because the neck will fall staight to the floor and might break all I have to say is if you buy this bass DO NOT LEAVE IT AT YOUR FRIENDS HOUSE BECAUSE IT WILL PROBABLY BREAK IN SOME WAY OR ANOTHER .... best $400 I've ever spent

    This bass is the best I have ever played. Right when I got it out of the box the color was amazing. The gold is very shiny not like in the dull picture. It sound good through any amp. You can play any type of music from jazz to metal.you need to buy this bass!it is worth it

    Nice bass

    By warwickstd

    from Wetumpka, AL

    See all my reviews

    I went down to the music shop to buy simple cleaners for my SR I own. Yet soon distracted I went to the basses I especially came just to see this bass once more. All the times I've been down there I never trusted myself to hold a guitar until recently. I got to play it and played it through a gigantic Behringer system which I want now. Everything on this bass is made right as to note. The neck is deep but not slow the tone is deep but not growling more of a punch to it. The controls and tone flex' seemed lame but it is passive anyways. Also if you complained about this bass hanging down when you played it. Um what could you be doing to not notice a guitar around your shoulders? I only say that because my strap bites and it comes off alot so it's my habit to keep one hand on my guitars at all times and I think others should get the same habit. All in all this is a bass that a P bass or mostly a J bass Fender player would enjoy but the shine seems nicer than a standard Fender series truly a nice looking bass and a great punchy bass at that. Ibanez once again proves itself.

    great for sit-down players

    By adudenamedmatt

    from Gadsden, AL

    This bass is extremely great for those who like to sit down and play a little bit with friends or family. The pickups sound great and it has great tone and such. There are two problems that brought me to trading it back in though. First, the action is WAY to low and make it hard to pick. Second, the neck outways the body by a large amount and causes it to fall down when standing and not holding the neck. Besides that, its a great choice.

    Better than cool, it's Ice Cold!

    By Phoenix

    from Franklin, TN

    This bass is awesome! I thoroughly tested one and I must say, it is an exceptional bass. The neck is nice and solid, and from the back of the neck to the fretboard it's smooth and easy to play. The one I played had exellent action, which made it even easier to play. I didn't get to play with a strap, but I could tell that it was much lighter than my Traben Sun SLE bass, yet it still got a beefy yet crisp tone. PLUS the passive electronics means you can depend on it. Before playing this bass, I had a disposition against passive basses because of their lack of tonal flexability, but this bass excels in tone! I played it through a near identical rig to mine (Gallien-Krueger Backline 600 head and a BLX-II 210 cab), and it really handled it. The tone on this bass is also great for bass overdrive/distortion or chorus.

    Great quality for price

    By Jim-j3OCp

    from Orlando, FL

    I had been messing around with this bass at Sam Ash for about 2 months before I decided to buy it. Until that time I had my heart set one an Epiphone Thunderbird for the same price, but gradually over time this instrument grew on me. My only problems with it have been stated before [weight distribution, strap locations, etc] but it's lightweight without losing any real tone. I also prefer active pick-ups, but these aren't low quality passives by any stretch of the imagination. The neck also plays fast [but that may be because I was playing nothing but a thick 5 string for a year before this too]. All in all I'm very pleased with my purchase, very high quality for a simple bass.
