So what can I say about this instrument? Well I have this in the "Piano White" & was tempted by a Sapphire Blue SR370 at one stage.Traded in a Warwick Rockbass,a similar bass,so perhaps I've merely traded "like for like" & lost money in the process.
The SR is also quite as lightweight,but I grew to appreciate Ibanez,having been drawn towards the "budget" Warwick originally.
Having borrowed a 6-string SR506,the build quality & general sound of Ibanez basses has grown on me.
The 3-control EQ is worthy of note & for someone like myself who likes "Top End" tones,this will deliver as much as a lowered-action RockBass.
Also,the looks of the bass are all there(the white is visually stunning & the pearl effect will catch the eye)
What does interest me is the input socket & standard leads will find themselves fitting snuggly into the jackpoint,though "L" shaped ones will be a struggle,as the socket is rounded into the body.
The neck feels superbly built & really solid.It certainly isn't as "broomhandled" as a RB neck either.
Okay,so this couldn't touch those in the higher end of the Ibanez range,but if you can stretch to an Ibanez or SDGR,I would strongly recommend it.I have added this to the other,scuzzy RB,an older 90s SL/Aria Pro II,Squier & an Epiphone Thunderbird IV.
A great technical inclusion to my bass collection & if I was to stretch to YET another bass,it would be a 5 or 6-string SDGR without any doubt...
Could I just add that an updated picture of the SR300PW is on here & currently available at £239.00.A steal,considering that a Warwick RockBass retails at a bit more.The hardware on the SR300 is a bit more versatile & whilst they're not Bartolinis,you'll notice the difference with the CAPs fitted to this bass.Good sound for an old punk like me....
