The Ibanez SR400 is a bass guitar. It’s not a terribly expensive one, but for a new to moderate player, it can get the job done. It comes with a thin neck, which makes it easier to move your hands while playing. The back has a matte finish on it which helps make it more frictionless, which, in turn, makes your hand slide up and down the neck and fretboard much more smoothly.
This Ibanez’s body has crafted especially well. It’s very smooth, with no pointy or sharp edges to be found. It’s a very comfortable guitar to play, one which allows you to play sitting up or standing down, just as all bass guitars should. For example, if you rest the guitar on your leg, it will stay balanced instead of falling. The strings on this, at least upon purchase, are very loose which makes for good playing. They’re also lifted off the bass fretboard enough so you have very little – of any – buzzing sounds.
Ibanez SR400 bass guitars also come with the P/J configured pickups, the P at the neck and the humbucker at the bridge. Additionally, you have three volume knobs and one tone so you can tweak the sound a decent amount.
This Ibanez bass guitar is one of the best for new or intermediate bass players. It comes will all the basics features and quality you would expect for a bass guitar in this price range, and it delivers a fantastic sound.
