Sound: sound quality is excellent, not "boomy" like other hollow body/jazz/rock basses i have owned. Feature: solid feeel from top to bottom, stays in tune forever! Quality: this bass is used on the road at big outdoor stages and small clubs, does it all swell. Value: nothing looks or sounds like this! 'specially for the money! Manufacturer Support: noboby stocks the hard case, had to order it, got it no problem, tho'. Overall: i am buying another one for a spare when we tour!

Musical Background: semi-pro musician
Music Style: rock/oldies/pop/country
Back to Product Information
Sound: A unique sound for sure. Great for oldies and classic rock/pop stuff. Nice jazz vibe to it as well. I use it for low volume acoustic gigs and full electric band jobs and it works well in both settings. I found by lowering the pickup that more definition is given to the notes and a better apt to pick up the semi-hollow vibe. Feature: Had to special order the hardshell case because it is an odd ball bass shape.It took way longer to get one from Ibanez than it should have. Other than that,no problems. Quality: Appears to be well made. I can't see it lasting 10 years of consistent gigging without problems,but for the short haul and if you have other options--it is fine. It is semi-hollow after all. Value: Good value for the price. No complaints. Manufacturer Support: Outside of the protracted case wait--no need to deal with them. The Wow Factor: This is one cool looking bass. Instantly drawn to it at the store. Chicks dig it too!!! Overall: Perfect bass for my oldies/pop cover gig.I would not buy another since I already have one,but this is a very cool bass and I can't see myself parting with it. Great value for the price.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: Sweet and Clean. Has that great thumpy sound found in the hollow bodies of the 60's. Feature: A volume and tone knob. Anything else, active pick-ups, EQ, etc. would only detract from the already beautiful sound. Ease of Use: This is one well built guitar!! Out of the box it was only slightly out of tune. Fit and finish is top notch. Quality: The factory set-up is quite good. This is a very playable instrument. The action is fast and clean, solid from head to toe. Value: You won't find a better "Bang for your Buck" !! Manufacturer Support: Great Support!! Unless I leave this out in rain or drop it down a flight of stairs I don't anticipate a need for any support. It's just that well made. In my mind, that's the best kind of support. The Wow Factor: Workmanship is impecable, Sound is awesome and the playability are just a few reasons I'd purchase another one in a heart beat if it was ever damaged or lost. Overall: She (the wife) asked me: "What do you need with another guitar??" Once it arrived and she looked it over she fell in love with it. I didn't even have to tell her the old story about how it belonged to someone else and I was "Just working on it out for him".

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
