    Ibanez SRFF805 should arrive in the next day or 2 from zzounds. I really wanted the Kiesel- I played the prototype in the showroom and it was hauntingly awesome. I didn't quite have the cash for that, but I was able to get this one at a good price new so I figured it's worth a shot .
    I don't love the look of the nut, but I hope it won't matter. I've had a regular SGR 5 string for like 15+ years that has been rock solid and expect this to be the same quality. Proper review forthcoming!

    It's here! Sounds great. I may sell off my other basses.

    Those are nice. I can't get along with the body style and finish so haven't bought one mainly for those reasons but they are nice to play and far better than Ibanez's fanned fret guitars because the basses have a better parallel fret placement.

    I agree the nut area could have been made cleaner.
