About This Listing

I dropped the price. I'm in loss territory now so, no, I'm not accepting offers. This is the lowest I would have gone and I need this to move before I change my mind.

You are looking at one of the rarest Ibanez production line basses and one of the first 5 string basses on the market. I really like this bass and I'm an 80's Ibanez fanboy, BUT I promised myself I wouldn't have instruments I don't play. Don't get me wrong - this is a player grade bass. But, it's not the beat to $h!t, rust barnacle Roadstars I've found at GCs and MGRs in the past. So, I have a weird head trip about the next scuff being my fault. I know I'm weird - I call it respect for my stuff.

That being said, if you're in the market for a cool, offbeat bass and want to give her a good home where she'll actually get out of the case - here's your chance.

It's sporting an ebony board topping a comfortable maple neck with a profile closer to a slim Fender than a modern Ibanez - very typical old Ibanez. The body is basswood and really resonant. There's no lack of sustain here. The pickups are old-school 9v active humbuckers. They aren't high-output EMG style or modern passive into a 18v preamp system. I've easily been plugging into the passive input of my old SWR with headroom to spare. It's currently strung with D'Addario coated XL strings and set up with low action and slinky feel.

Check the photos. There's definitely 34 years of use, but no abuse.

Thanks for looking!
