IBANEZ SR2600E Poor finish or wood warp
Purchased the base 01-19-2018 and just this year the finish and wood has cracked rendering the bass looking terrible. Was a beautiful bass and sounded amazing.
Played it some but never gigged and always put in Hard shell case with no one but myself accessing the bass and took it out of the case and found it cracked from the bridge pickup to the Low side all the way to the edge and then down to nearly the strap lock screw and then all the way to the battery compartment. I understand it has been 6 years but this bass should last a lifetime without having severe damage to it that was not dropped slammed or exposed in any way harmful in its lifetime. Ibanez response when I sent then pictures and my receipt of purchase. They would not even consider assisting in any type of resolution other than get lost. Im truly disappointed and will be choosing another bass manufacturer from now on. I have purchased the following in the past.
- Ibanez Soundgear gio 205- $200
- Ibanez SR605 $ 1000
- Ibanez BTB 405Q’’ $800
- Ibanez SR2600E $1500
- Ibanez RGB300 $450
- Ibanez SRMS625EX Iron Label Electric Bass, 5-String $1000
- Ibanez AEGB24E Acoustic-Electric Bass $450
TOTALING $5400 in basses from Ibanez
Im so bummed about it my mojo is lost and playing bass right now is difficult at best.
Im looking to move to another maker and leaning towards Warwick.
