Almost perfect!
GussWhat?, 03.07.2019
I was extremely satisfied with this product. It's a sturdy bass, though quite lightweight, with a pretty design like most Ibanez Soundgear models.

It is comfortable. The auxiliary lines, although almost imperceptible, are quite easy to see in situations of low light; as they reflect some brightness. It may sound stupid, but in live situations, it's good to know you have that extra.

The sound of the piezo pickup is well above the norm (nicely enhancing the semi-hollow body), and the tone options are quite straightforward. I have used it live and in the studio with the pre-amp, completely flat. Sometimes it almost sounds like a double bass (more than many of Ibanez's electrical ones).

The only thing that could be different is the material that the nut is made of (plastic, it seems) and that's why I do not give the five stars in the features. Still, it does not affect the quality/sound of the bass in any way.

For a fairly bearable price, it's a bass guitar for life; with only one upgrade or another over time.
I just made the basic set-up, set the intonation and lower the action of the strings, to be more to my taste (as I always do); just it. Even the strings with which it comes are good and in good condition.
The option to calibrate the individual volume per string is excellent but, frankly, I did not even have to use it, everything was already well balanced.
Also, although the system is passive, it has a lot more volume than usual.

Great buy. I will continue to use it, recurrently.

P.S. - It is also quite addictive to play.

Used for jazz and big band functions
Colin Rudd, 25.01.2019
After many years of playing 5 string fretless, this instrument gives the sound I have been searching for.
I saw the demonstrations on You Tube and was convinced but was unable to source the instrument in UK.
Thank you Thomaan.
