    Exactly as advertised, Guitar Center even overnighted after a 4:30 pm order. Got it next day.

      Comments about Ibanez SR250 Electric Bass:

      I bought this bass (pearl white - 4 string) on a whim at my local Guitar Center store. I needed an affordable back-up bass just to get me through a practice that was approaching while my main bass (Warwick Corvette Standard) was out of commission due to some maintenance issues. At the time of purchase, I thought I would only be using this bass a small handful of times and never expected to be so blown away.

      I am an experienced bassist that has owned many high-end instruments ranging from Music Mans to Warwicks over the past 10-15 years. This Ibanez absolutely blew me away when I plugged it in. I set both my amp and bass EQ flat, with the exception of the bass and treble knobs dialed to 1 o'clock and instantly had a punchy, growly, flat-out impressive tone. I tend to play more aggressive finger-style and this bass was sounding incredible to me, all with VERY minimal effort to try and seek out a great tone. The neck is thin and the bass is very light, making it a pleasure to play. The simple, active controls allow you to shape many a tone with ease.

      Don't be fooled by the price tag and the illusion that this is strictly a bass designed for beginners. This bass can absolutely NOT be beat for the money! I loved it so much I quickly bought the Soda Blue Sunburst model as well.

      I never thought I would say this, but this has become my #1 bass. Although you have been great to me over the past 10+ years, goodbye old faithful (and super heavy!) Warwick; you have been replaced.

      Buy. This. Bass. You won't regret it.

        Comments about Ibanez SR250 Electric Bass:

        I'm a guitar player who wants to learn basic bass - enough to speak the language and understand the concepts and even jam a bit. This bass suits that purpose. As a guitarist I own high quality gear. I've even plunked around on really nice bass guitars. I bought this to learn on. I'm always leery about "budget" instruments. But this one surprised me. I really like the feel, the neck, the weight and the sound. I just wish they would have included the documentation and instructions on the controls. It'll do for what I need.

        Great, comfortable bass.

        Comments about Ibanez SR250 Electric Bass:

        I bought this bass in person at the Guitar Center in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Normally, I wouldn't choose a white guitar, but it was the only one they had in stock. The white color is actually beautiful and you can't really tell from the pictures. When it's in the light you can see it actually has sparkles in the finish. So this is not just a "white" guitar. Playability is incredibly comfortable and easy. I am predominately an acoustic guitar player and I hadn't picked up a bass in ten years, but I needed to lay down some bass tracks for a new album and didn't have a bass player so I figured I would wing it...and winging it turned out to be SUPER easy with this easy-to-play bass. The tone is fantastic for a bass in this low price range and you have several EQ knobs so you can really shape the sound you are looking for. This bass also has a "bass boost" knob to really fatten it up. I was really surprised with the quality and playability of this instrument. And Guitar Center had actually changed out the stock strings AND did a set-up on it before they even put it out on the floor which saved me $50 right there! The only small complaint I have is that the nine-volt battery died after only a month of playing. On the other hand, I have no idea how many people played this bass before I found it. Great bass for the money.

          Comments about Ibanez SR250 Electric Bass:

          Picked up one of these basses in the Soda blue burst. The finish looks great with no obvious flaws seen in it.

          Gave it the gig test after tweaking it to my specs... Not a lot of tweaking needed! Just changed out the strings to my specific gauge (extra light) First thing I noticed was the tuning gears were a bit "stiff" - might have to adjust those, but not too hard to work with. The bass tuned up perfectly. The frets are seated well without any filing needed. The neck itself was quite fast and easily playable. Very nice action. The nato body wood is a bit heavier than say the agathis used on other models. But still comfortable to play.

          The sound is what really matters, and this bass actually shines in that respect! The three band eq does what you would expect with easily adjusted lows, mids, and highs. I was able to dial in a very nice sound quickly. The sound was balanced across the strings with no uneven string response noted.

          I did have a bit of an issue with the pickup placement however. There isn't a lot of room for that "sweet spot" right hand finger picking position. If playing with a pick, you might get some "clicking" from the pick hitting the pick up. (But in a loud setting, that probably wouldn't be noticeable.) It's really a minor issue in all.

          Overall, nice bass, good quality and very good sound. Very playable for any style.

          Nice Entry Level Bass

          By William

          from Owasso OK

          Comments about Ibanez SR250 Electric Bass:

          I picked up a gently used one at my local Guitar Center for 100 less than a new one. It was a lucky find on my part. This bass is pretty nice. I hadn't picked up a bass guitar in probably 15 years. This has a nice feel and the variety of tones is great too. I'm running mine thru my Zoom Effects unit directly into my PC (DAW). I needed something to lay down some bass tracks and this easily does the job. The neck is smooth and tapered and the body is solid. Ibanez did a good job making an inexpensive bass without an inexpensive feel.
