This is the first musical instrument I've ever had. The body is very slim, the neck as well, and although the over all weight is not that light.. the Ibanez sr300 feels so good when holding it. However, keep in mind : upgrading it, its a great issue. You will not be able to find good upgrade parts easily. Pick-ups sound very nice for a starter and intermediate bass guitar.
What can I say, this bass has its + and -. The overall feeling is kinda like the higher SDGR models, but the wood is cheaper and brighter. Electronics are nothing to brag about aswell, but then again it is a good one for the money. The neck is slim and fast, and it is good to go right from the box. Good deal for a newcomer.
