Comments about Ibanez TMB100 Electric Bass Guitar:

I got this bass recently and I love it. I got it in the white and it looks beautiful. The controls are easily laid out and provide a good punchy tone ora nice soft tone if desired. It is a little heavy and the neck is on the wider side, but I'm still adjusting because previously I was using a 3/4 size bass. I also had to adjust the neck and saddle to eliminate fret buzz. Other than that I love it!

    Comments about Ibanez TMB100 Electric Bass Guitar:

    Excellent workmanship and setup out of the box. I am shocked at how low the price was for the Soda Blue option (forty dollars less than the others). Bright and punchy. Great feel to the neck . Nice retro look with tortoise shell pickguard and the combination P/J pickups allow for many different tonal possibilities.

    Comments about Ibanez TMB100 Electric Bass Guitar:

    I felt this TMB was a better quality instrument than others in this price range, and it is definitely more versatile. On top of the advantages of its function, this bass ax looks killer! The only issue I have had, is that I experienced an abnormal amount of fret buzz. A slight loosening adjustment on the truss rod took care of most of that. No big deal, but I guess its worth mentioning, cause that's the only negative I've got. I'm very happy with my TMB100.

    Comments about Ibanez TMB100 Electric Bass Guitar:

    Great bass offers wide tonal variety and sounds great in all of them. Planning on replacing the stock bridge for something with more room for adjustabilty. If you want a great bass at a low price then look no further.

    I don't play bass very often, I play guitar and mandolin, but this is definitely a great bass to start with! This bass would be even better if you would set it up because the frets buzz quite a bit.

    Truly A Great Bass Guitar

    By Patricia

    Comments about Ibanez TMB100 Electric Bass Guitar:

    This instrument has been great to play, as it has great sound even through my guitar amp. It's a fantastic instrument for someone starting off or for a seasoned player looking for an affordable bass. There is fret buzz on the instrument, but it poses little issue overall.

      The weight is perfect for long gigs and the setup from the factory was spot on. Love the tone and I was worried about active pickups but they really add so much dimension to the sound. A bass for all styles of playing. This is the reason I only play Ibanez.

      Comments about Ibanez TMB100 Electric Bass Guitar:

      I noticed the TBM100 a few years ago and finally decided to buy one. I'm glad I did. This bass would be great at more than twice the price but don't tell Ibanez. The only thing I did was put on my favorite strings and it's fantastic. The tone variation with my gear was wide and getting a full sound from the lowest low to highest high was so easy. And it's great for slap and pop.. Try one out at your local store you'll be glad you did.

      Comments about Ibanez TMB100 Electric Bass Guitar:

      I've played guitar for 14 years, but just got my first bass used from the Guitar Center over the weekend. It sounds good, is fun to play, and was inexpensive. There is some fret buzz, but it's not noticeable when plugged in. I'm a novice on bass and only started playing it last year with guys from work who jam a couple of months every year to get ready for an annual office party gig. I had been borrowing a bass from the lead guitarist in the band, but enjoyed it so much I decided to buy one. So far I've had a great time playing it, and have no regrets.

      Comments about Ibanez TMB100 Electric Bass Guitar:

      I've only had for about a week or so. You will need to adjust the truss rod and action, maybe work a few frets to get it playable. Has a wide range of tones possible. One set of knobs worked great, the other is 'sticky'. Overall, good price to value ratio

        Comments about Ibanez TMB100 Electric Bass Guitar:

        This is the best bass for this price range, plays and songs better than many Basses that cost more. I play it through a Fender Rumble 40 with the EQ and pick ups at the Center detention setting. I play every genre and it's bass can adjusted to p or j bass tones. I use mine with the center detents set in the middle and the volume maxed out.

            This is such a nice bass, one of my favorites by far. Though it can be a bit challenging for new players cause it is very heavy. So get a good strap with it. Also fret buzz can happen but a bit of truss rod fixing and it'll go away.
