Ive had my Ibanez SR875 for about a year now, and I absolutely love it. New to the forum and just wanted to get to know everyone, and thought this might be a good way to start. Happy Holidays to all my low end friends.
Welcome aboard, @JuiceboxHero . . .
That’s one beautiful bass, too!
Thank you! Feels like home already.
I really want a SR2400APL (just saw your reply there in the other thread )
can’t really justify it though because it’s basically just a slightly nicer version of the bass I already have.
Your bass is extremely similar to mine other than being a 4 string. I love the compact body size, and the neck plays like butter. What do you think about the pick ups? Are they the Bartolini BH2’s?
Something about the SR line from Ibanez draws me in. That is gorgeous!
Feels great too. Even lighter than my TRBX.
Mine is a shade over 8lbs. For a 5er that is incredibly lightweight, especially after getting used to playing my G&L. That thing was HEAVY!
Yeah, I love Ibanez and Yamaha for that. Mine’s 8.3 lbs.
My Ibanez has slowly made its way to #1 for me. It’s just so much fun to play.
Yes, the same BH2 as on yours. (Along with pretty much everything else being the same as well. To be honest I don’t even understand the differences between all these SR models, apart from the cosmetics of course. But that’s a different subject.)
I actually find them a bit noisy, they pick up some interference from my laptop and phone when I’m near them. But it’s negligible in a musical setting, and as I said I don’t have anything to compare it to. Maybe other basses are more noisy.
I agree. I’ve considered swapping out the stock pups to another brand. I think Aguilar makes a drop in replacement. The only real difference between yours and mine is the finish, and the flame maple veneer top. I’m almost positive everything else is the same
My SR650e which has become my number one bass. I absolutely love the neck, the looks, the weight, and the many great tones I can pull out of it. My only complaint is that the J pickup is pretty noisy and is turned off most of the time as a result. Luckily the CND reverse P pickup gives me more then enough to love. You can definitely count me on the list of Ibanez fans. Welcome to the forum, that bass is gorgeous, enjoy it!
@JuiceboxHero what is that fretboard made from? Maybe it is just the light, but it doesn’t look like maple.
I love the finish on your bass. Looks like one that would wear nicely over time. I have always liked the look of a bass that has been broken in and picked up some “war paint”. Looks like you’ve got a good one my friend. Happy Holidays.
I had an Ibanez fretless for awhile and liked it a lot. I’m more of a Yamaha fan, but Ibanez is nice too. Yours is lovely.
I have an Ibanez SR300E - my first and only. I chose this for two reasons: 1) slimmer neck and maybe less of a challenge for small hands, and 2) budget. I also like the look a lot, so I’m happy with it… It’s been a good place to start out.
Yep. SRMS805 in twilight blue here. It’s lovely in every possible way and don’t see it going away anytime soon if ever.
Welcome aboard @JuiceboxHero,
Great looking bass,
Enjoy the ride,
I have a SR 655. Awesome bass. Welcome .
