Pardon the craptacular phone pic, but I just got this in yesterday. It's an Ibanez SR400, more or less mint condition, for $175 including the TKL hardshell case. It's in dire need of a good setup+strings (Drew, do you do basses too?) but seems like it'll be just the ticket.
I'm a complete utter noob when it comes to bass, so I'll have to experiment with tones.
I'm not the biggest Ibanez fan these days, but whenever I'd go into my buddy's shop the SR series is what I'd always pull off the wall to mess with.
Those are awesome basses, especially for that price. The electronics can stand doing up, but all in all, great workhorses.
