My advice would be to try it before you outright purchase it, but if that's not a possibility decide if you really want it, and go for it. I'm sure your local music shop could fix any problems you have with it.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

if you notice any spelling mistakes, or grammar stuff, its cos i have tourettes syndrome and i cbf correcting it, cos that involves reading it over. so get the F*** over it.

Usually following a sentence with !?!?! means it's not quite serious. It's only a solution if you use the low E more than the low B (which I assume one would) but the thought was more of a joke.

Well I usually see the ?!?!! as either 1) A Noobism, and I know you're not a noob, or
2) Outright incredulity

As they Iceman is originally a 6 string guitar (a very nice one at that), I would not expect it to be at the standard of a guitar designed just as a bass.

Of course being an Ibanez, it ain't gonna be shit, and it looks ****ing nice, but try it out

i can honestly say that some of the reviews on MF are plants.

so don't believe all of them.

but, PLAY it first.

I have one of these babies, and I think it's a damn good bass for the money. It's really easy to play, and it looks insane. Don't worry about the tone problem with the e-string: for me, it was easily solved by buying a new set of strings. The original strings are simply not very good, specifically in the low range. The fretboard on the bass is really fast, and it's easy to put the action where you want it. My only concern would be slap on this thing: if you play slap-heavy music, you're gonna need a decent EQ (I play slap on it sometimes, but prefer my other fretted bass due to the tone). Hope that helps.
