I play mostly rock/ska music. I've been looking into ibanez soundgear bass guitars. What do you guys think about this one?

By the way, I'm thinking about buying a new bass guitar online, so which instrument site do you like the most? I'm thinking of using either zzounds or musiciansfriend. Thanks guys

If its your first bass, & you have no idea about intonation, action etc. I would stay away from rondo, they take a fair bit of effort to get up to scratch.

Also do you have an amp? you WILL need a bass amp, guitar amp = bad.

If you don't have amp, you'll defiantly want to increase your budget. if you have one, I would recommend these:

http://www.zzounds.com/item--IBAGSR200 - same as the one you poseted, but more versatile

http://www.zzounds.com/item--ESPB50 - once again, it has PJ pups, so it'll be more versatile than a bucker

http://www.zzounds.com/item--YAMRBX170 - PJ again


also, go down to a local music store & try some out, we can't tell what you'll like, there is little to choose from under 200$ however.

Firstly FTFFAQ. Ibanez SRs are fine instruments though.

may I suggest GSR200, to narrow it down a little?

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

I'm going to get flamed for this, but I'd try out an SX bass. I bought one a while ago and love it. It plays on par with my MIM Fender P bass.

+1, ive got a Gsr-200 and its all you really need to start with in a bass. A good range of tones, comfy thin neck and its good value at about $200. Its also quite an easy bass to learn slap on. Ive no experience of many other basses in the price range though, so youre best going to a shop and trying some basses out for yourself, seeing how comfortable the neck is etc. id advise also checking out the FAQ and some reviews on this site for more info on the basses.
