  • Summary: I just bought this bass and for the money it's perfect for me to practice my John Patitucci and Barry Harris licks. It does not compare in tone to other 6 string basses but at this price point i'm good with that. Fast neck, nice string spacing, lightweight and 34". Couldn't be happier.
  • Pros: neck profile,weight,string spacing

  • Summary: This has been my main bass for about 2 years now and let me say, you can't beat it for the price. I love the neck on this bass. Its really comfortable to play and once its set up properly the action is like butter. The intonation is a little off like others have said before but it hasn't affected my playing too much. The tone is also pretty good but I do have a few gripes. The tonal range isn't quite as even as my Fender Jazz bass.
  • Pros: Lightweight, very comfortable neck, great action, nice tone
  • Cons: would like to replace preamp

  • Summary: This is my first "true" bass after playing my mom's old vox But I have went back to several gc's, pawn shops, and sam ashes and I can't find a bass close to this price range with the same playability, weight distribution, or overall sound that can compare. My friend played it at church when I brought it up and ordered himself the Ibanez SDGR 706 that night!
  • Pros: reliable, tough, growls, awesome tone
  • Cons: paint may wear

  • Summary: I've had my Sr-506 a bit more than a year now. It was my first 6 after playing only a 4 for 25 years, off and on. It has since become my main bass, replacing my wonderful '79 Stingray for that distinction. It has a very modern, aggressive, warm tone. I've yet to play a better 6 in its price point. I definitely recommend it to someone looking for 6 that doesn't want to spend a lot of money.
  • Pros: Fast neck, good electronics, agressive tone, relatively inexpensive.

  • Summary: Overall, I really liked this bass when I owned it. However, what I found with this bass shortly after purchasing it was that the intonation was way off and could not be adjusted. I have been playing for many years and have worked on all of my instruments since day one. When I brought it back to return I even checked out another one and it had the same exact problem. The guitar tech at the store tried himself to adjust the intonation and was not able to do it as well.
  • Pros: Price, Tone, weight
  • Cons: Intonation

  • Summary: I have owned my SR506 for 6 months now. It was my first 6-string. I am blown away with the quality of this instrument. The neck is solid as a rock and has 2 truss rods, an option I would not have expected from a Korean-made Ibanez. The standard Bart MK-1s sound better in this bass then in any other I've played. The tone is really even and usable.
  • Pros: Construction, tone
  • Cons: Ergonomics
