Played an Ibanez Premium SR1205E today

The 5 string Premium bass, that is. I have been toying with the idea of snatching up a 5-string bass and was browsing the GC craze today for a short while.

What can I say, wow. Nice fit, nice wood finish, nice pickups, nice hotdog fret ends, nice neck, nice bridge/string saddles, and nice price on top of that. I didn't get it, but Ibanez seems to be on to something with these.

My only worry would be the finish itself. As usual for GC, the one on display had dents and scratch marks, and I think the "soft" finish of the wood will gouge easily.

Does anyone here own one?

I don't own one (I have a W&T) but I've played them and they are fine basses
