What Ibanez Bass is decent

I知 not sure if this is the place for this post, but I知 looking for some help on how to pick an Ibanez bass. I知 a guitarist, but I need something to lay down some basic recording tracks. I have a lot of Ibanez guitars. I壇 like something along the line of a used Japanese RG. I can稚 seem to find the county of origin on the Ibanez base though. If anyone knows the models of the entry level Japanese bases, please let me know. Chris

I have a soundgear SR400-L (lefty). I love it, but I think I like my MIM Jazz bass better...although it may be due to the fact that I have horrible strings on the Ibanez

All current Ibanez basses are MIK, except for the Gios which are either MII or MIC.

Look out for an early '90s SR800 - SR2000. They were all mij and tend to go for pretty cheap. I got my hands on a '91 SR1500 and it blows.

EDC 700 is just slick. It plays easily, has a huge range of sounds, and looks stunning. $200-$300 when they come up on bay.

Here's the one I have:

The RD series is also great, at least great looking. With sharktooth inlays and a "real" Ibanez headstock.

Go for a Music Man Stingray instead or a Music Man Sub, they rule.
