Excerpt: The SR700 gets a wide variety of sounds. You can play most styles of music with it, due to the active Bartolini EQ. Switching back and forth and blending pick-ups also adds to the many sounds this instrument gets. The SR700 gets booming lows for Motown (turn off the treble and midrange,) as well as great highs for solos (sound like Stanley Clarke.)Though many people say Ibanez is mainly a metal bass, I've found in soungs great for any style you like.
Summary: Toyed with the idea of buying one of these for some time and decided to take the plunge after reading other reviews.Great decision,a wonderful bass for not alot of money.One of the sexiest looking basses out there.Playing wise its a sinch to get around the neck,really slim with a matt finish,piece of cake!
Summary: After spending a long while trying pretty much every bass on display in many a music shop I kept finding myself drawn back to this absolute beauty. Having played a series of Fender’s, Rickenbacker’s, Yamaha’s, Musicman’s and everything in between whilst searching for the perfect bass I came to realise nothing beats this beast. - If you're a regular gigger then you'll find the weight perfect. Won’t ruin your back like a Fender!
Summary: The Ibanez SR700 bass is both beautiful to play and beautiful to look at (I have the amber version). This bass is light and well balanced. The SR700 has very powerful and dynamic pick ups and is a joy to play with its ultra slim neck. A professional level instrument and difficult to beat at around the £600 mark in my opinion.
