Manufactured in Japan at the highly regarded FujiGen factory in 1984, this vintage bass has great tone, sweet action, and very clean good looks.

Ibanez invented the P/J pickup combination in the mid-1970s, and by the mid-1980s, Ibanez had it dialled.

I think the Ibanez RB650 is one of the best sounding P/Js ever made, meaty and deep, yet with an articulation and clarity that the Precision-type bass's split single coil PU can't deliver all by itself.

You can't beat a maple fretboard on either a P Bass or a P/J, and this one has no unsightly blemishes on the most commonly played areas of the fretboard, as you see on some Ibanez RB650s and maple fretboards in general.

Cosmetically, this bass is exceptionally clean and sharp looking in deep burgundy red with a white pick guard. As pictured, there are a few minor scuffs, a little tarnishing on the bridge, a small bung on the pick guard where you insert the key to adjust the truss rod, a discoloration that is undetectable with the hand on the back of the neck, and one minor scratch on the back, but that's about it. You are not going to find too many 35 year old basses that are cleaner looking than this one.

This bass is entirely stock and original (including the distinctive flying V strap buttons), except for the output jack, which I had replaced last week. I also had new strings installed, and the bass professionally set up at the same time.

This Ibanez RB650 Roadstar II Bass is ready to go!
