  • NBD

    My latest pawn shop score: Ibanez SRX690EX
    Evidently the price tag was mislabeled, but I give the guy credit, he honored it. I'm sure that he was sad to see it go at the price though.

    Very nice! Are those some kinda rail pickups? I can't quite see.

      No. I think that they're similar to MM. They sound quite good.

        Sweet!

        The only thing missing from my lineup is something with humbuckers. Love the offset dots, and that top is the stuff.

          Did I mention that it's neck through?

            Whoa... I hate neck thru guitars, but I need to give them a shot on basses.

              Does it sound like a Music Man? Or does it have its own unique thing going on?

                I honestly wouldn't know, as I've never played one.

                  I think MM basses usually have the pickup further from the bridge.

                    Probably. Like I said, I've never played one. I do recall that the pickups look similar to what's on this Ibanez. Which is probably where Ibanez copied them from. They have those fat round pole pieces.

                      Just spent some time putting it through it's paces after getting the amp dialed in yesterday. Wow.
                      Funny thing is, I dialed in the amp trying to get rid of a buzz that I kept hearing. Finally gave up as "good enough". Today I discovered a small plank of wood leaning against the speaker grill, promptly removed it. "Good enough" suddenly became "just fine".
                      Now, just using the onboard controls of the bass, I can go from D.D. Vernie to Jaco, to Stanley Clarke, to Entwisle, Squire... Anyway, you get the idea.
                      Now I'm going to have to play my Jackson so I can compare the two.

                        I love neck through. The only thing that holds me back from them is the price. On this one, the price was more than just right.

                            Please elaborate on your distaste of thru neck... what's not to love? -unless you have stock in Mighty Mite or Warmoth.

                              The only downside that I can see with either set or neck through instruments is if they get damaged they're more difficult to repair.
