I don't own one, but will share common knowledge. These have a thin, very easy to play neck if that's the style you like. Also typically very lightweight, with good overall ergonomics. Decent hardware, ie bridge and tuners, and meh ... electronics. OK but not great.

This would be a great beginner bass for someone leaning toward the SR series of Ibanez basses, which start here and go up into the thousands with their Premium and Prestige SRs. I had a SR1300 which was an amazing bass.

You get a heck of a lot of bass with either Ibanez family of basses, these, or the TMB series, which are stylistically much closer to Fender, with thicker necks and more traditional body styles.
Have any experience with the short neck version that Ibanez makes? Been trying to decide between the short neck and standard neck. I've never played bass before and haven't picked up a guitar in years.

Can we plug in headphone jack or something into this and play so that I don't disturb others? Also, if I dont have an amp or any external device, will I still be able to play ?

To use headphones, you need a Headphone Guitar Amp. I have the Nady Axehead, and it works great. There are many other brands available, too. You can also practice without any amplifier just fine.

You'll need an external device, but it can be a small adapter that allows you to plug into an iPad or smartphone or computer.

Check out the iRig series of devices and their direct competitors.

But folks please note that this is a bass guitar... If you truly want to hear the tones then you will need to make sure that your speaker can reach the right range.

Headphones through a smartphone might work out, depending on what you have, but an internal smartphone speaker is not going to keep you inspired.

If you wanbt to really hear yourself play, you'll need something to amplify the electric signal (like an amp) or to record and play back the signal (like a digital amp for an iPad or PC). Most amplifiers have a headphone jack.

But you can practice unplugged - I do most of the time.
You don't *really* need a headphone amp. If you have a laptop/PC with a 3.5mm input jack, you can play through that (you'll need a 1/4" to 3.5mm adapter, which are like a buck online). Just set the audio to use the line as the input and play it through the speakers. You should definitely use decent headphones or decent speakers, but as mentioned above it will never sound awesome because of the frequency response of most PC speakers and headphones.

BUT, you can still do it without buying some other piece of equipment. I did it this way for years in college when things like PODs and whatever else didn't really exist.

Bass strings require a longer scale for proper intonation. Short necks are bad idea. Plenty of small women can play a 34" or 35" scale bass guitar.

I picked up one of these the last time it was one sale. For the price it's a great bass. I have mostly played it with rocksmith. Works flawlessly for that. If you are looking for a first bass, go for it!

As someone else already said, buy a headphone amplifier, they vary from 30-45dlls by brand. However, the best choice if you have money and will eventually need an amp, just buy a small amp head with a headphone out. The tone it will give you will just be better. I own a trace Elliot Elf, which is the smallest bass amp head out there and it's amazing. I got it for 300dlls 2 months ago at guitar center and I just saw it on amazon for 200dlls, such a good deal. That's cheaper than buying used from other sites. Highly recommended! Applause

I haven't played an Ibanez short scale but have several others. I really enjoy my Fender Mustang, Jaguar, and Supro and Hoffner shorties.
I would readily get the Ibanez TMB30 which is a short scale if I needed one. Advances in strings and bass designs make short scale basses totally viable options for anybody looking for an easy to play alternative.
You just don't want to downtune on one. Shorties rock.
