  • Versatile entry-level bass

    As reviewed by MATTHEW THOMPSON on 9/26/2013

    I don't want to sound like an elitist, because I'm still really a beginner even after 18+ years of playing bass. But I do want to explain that this is really still an entry level bass. Having said that, here's my thoughts. I picked up one in Candy Apple Red, mainly because I love the black and red color scheme... so much that I also bought a set of DR Black Beauties (BKB-45 set is perfect for Ibanez four-strings) and installed them as soon as I got back from the store. Being an entry level instrument, especially one built in China, there are some minor quality issues to attend to. First off: When you change the strings for the first time, make sure you have a #1 Philips screwdriver and a 15mm socket wrench available. As you remove each string, tighten the wood screw to each tuning machine on the back of the headstock before tightening the nut on the top side. You will definitely notice that these are not tight once you take the string off, if they've never been changed before. After changing each string one at a time, clean away the bits of plastic that the strings file away from the nut. The nut is made of soft ABS plastic, and you may not want it for very long. Your local Guitar Center tech will surely have a good replacement nut for it. The bridge is better looking than your typical barrel-and-bent-plate, but it isn't a huge improvement other than aesthetics. Not completely sold on the neck joint, but hey... it should do the trick for a while. Also, if you're a picker or a plucker rather than a slapper, you're probably going to want to increase the neck relief (loosen the truss rod) to get rid of any fret buzz. Since I'm using mine mainly for slapping, it's almost non-existent. The neck relief on mine measured out to about 0.35mm at the 8th fret, a bit on the low side but within Ibanez's specs, tuned EADG, with factory recommended gauges. Overall, these SR Soundgear basses feel amazing and generally have a great tone to them. For the price, most any SR above a Gio series is a great alternative to a Squier jazz bass. They're all well balanced with a slender, smooth neck, and comfortable to play for hours. This SR250 also has upgraded active electronics. The preamp gives you a much cleaner, quieter tone than the SR200s and lower (Gio) and having a mid cut/boost is especially nice to dial in a good slap tone. I've also grown very fond of having a volume and pickup balance style control, over two volumes or a switch. This lets you capture or avoid the richest harmonics, no matter what key you're playing in.. especially important for capo users. Overall, I'd say that it's a great starter point if you like upgrading things. The tuning machines are not very solid, the nut is garbage, and the bridge is pretty standard issue. But the overall package is worth it if you're prepared to take Quality Control into your own hands. Like I said before, it's Chinese so don't expect a miracle at this price right out of the box.

  • Great Quality Bass

    As reviewed by Greg Slease on 3/22/2013

    I've owned this bass for about a month now, and I'm really enjoying it. It has a great tone. I also really enjoy the neck. It's very thin and very comfortable. I highly reccomend this bass to any bassist seaking an affordable and excellent quality bass.

  • Really good for the price! Great for Intermediates and recording!

    As reviewed by John Kovalsky on 2/15/2013

    I just bought this Bass today and it sounds amazing! I recently broke my old Bass and I picked this one up. This Bass is cheaper and by far better then my other one. It has a thin neck so it's more comfortable playing. Great sound the pickups are amazing for stock pickups! As I start playing more shows I'll probably replace them. It holds Drop B+C really well for all of you Slipknot, The Devil Wears Prada, and Suicide Silence fans. And for the Metal fans like myself who enjoy playing Metallica, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, and more... Will love the action and sound you will get out of it! Not much more I can say about it but excellent Bass for the price! This is the Bass for all you intermediates out there with the skill but not the cash.
