    NBD: Ibanez Fanned Fret 5 String (SRMS805)

    I just got this in on Saturday and have only played it a total of 20 minutes so far but this is the first fanned fret instrument I've ever owned and I can see the appeal. I got this from a dude in Florida with too many basses for a steal of a price. I've always been a fan of Bartolini pickups, and with a million different tone options on this thing the pickups and preamp definitely deliver. I'm usually not a fan of burl tops but this one seems more classy/not as obnoxious as some I've seen and the walnut top+mahogany body definitely produces a darker tone overall. The neck is an unfinished jatoba + walnut and plays very fast. I've always loved Ibanez BTB and SR basses and this one doesn't disappoint

    Looks great. But man - lots of knobs & switches. I'm so used to my guitars w/one or two knobs, then I go to my bass w/4 knobs and don't know what the hell to do.

    I've been eyeing these lately. I've got a 5-string Warwick and anything lower than B on that 5th string just sounds like shit.

    Congrats!

    The amount of knobs and switches is the only drawback from this thing. I’ve read the control layout like 5 times now and I still forget what everything does.

    No idea, I've only played some Sly Stone basslines on it so far.
