  • Big, big bang for the bucks

    As reviewed by Oldie Moldie on 8/29/2009

    I recently traded an extremely expensive high-end 6-string for this model Ibanez. I'd had long experience with their pencil-neck 4 strings and had loved them. This bass had a more consistent tone than my other 6-string, had a thinner, easier neck, and is almost 5 pounds lighter. I played a gig the night I bought it and was wowed by the purity and clarity of the sound in a real environment. The tone was extremely easy to vary and control. I could get crystal-clear pops, a fat dub sound, and anything I wanted in between. My hands weren't tired at the end of the night, and I made fewer mistakes because of the increase in playing comfort. I wish I'd bought this bass years ago. It's not a pretty instrument, but it's a very, very functional instrument. One warning, though: if you're not comfortable with tight string spacing, this is not the bass for you.

  • Amazing bass.

    As reviewed by Nick Ornelas on 11/4/2009

    Great feel, great sound and a great price. This is the closest to a professional instrument you can buy at this price and it is well worth it. The unfinished neck makes playing so comfortable. If you are a seasoned six string player or just starting buy this bass. Oh, and the Bartonlini pick ups are great too.

  • Fantastic Instrument

    As reviewed by Steve Bradfield on 11/5/2010

    I bought a used 505 and within a month had traded up to a brand-new 506. I like the finish, though it's not exactly flashy. It doesn't seem to weigh any more than the 5-string, and I've worn it for a couple of hours at a time with no pain or strain. The neck is a pleasure to play, but the real standout is the Bartolini Mk-1 pickups and active EQ. A single volume knob with a pickup-balancer is the way to go! The balance knob has a center detente, as do the three tone controls, so finding the middle on a dark stage is quick and easy. The tonal control is amazing, and as others have said you can play almost any sound you can imagine, from extremely bright to extremely deep. I leave my amp tones all set flat and control everything from the bass. The only downside I find is that we have a couple of songs that I play the twenty-fourth fret. I can reach it, but it's not quick and it's not comfortable, so I have to note that complaint. Overall, this is the best bass I've ever played for sound and control, and I don't see why I would need to spend four times as much for a bass that is probably only marginally better.
