For sale is a rare, Ibanez Prestige model 5 string bass (2006 NAMM presentation).
Features mahogany wings with a figured bubinga top (looks 3D with lighting). 5 piece neck-through neck with matching bubinga headstock veneer. Gold hardware, individual bridges for each string, 16.5mm string spacing. Very comfortable. Fantastic for players with smaller hands. 34" scale. Strung with Sadowsky Blue Label SS.
This bass has been upgraded with Nordstrand Big Singles pickups (think jazz bass on steroids) with staggered polepieces, all wired to an Aguilar OBP-3 active 9v preamp. Top mounted Switchcraft jack, which is much more reliable than the typical barrel type jack.
Comes with an MTD case in excellent condition.
Weight is very comfortable at 8.98 lbs / 4076 g
This bass plays and sounds fantastic, it can easily hang with instruments 2x the price. Only selling because I'm a jazz bass guy at heart, but for a modern Ken Smith/Elrick type of sound, it really nails it. Both supportive and cutting, and very even across the range of the fretboard.
Price: $975 shipped Canada/US
Trades: 4/5 string jazz bass style instruments, i.e. MIA Fender, Marcus Miller Jazz Bass, Fender Road Worn, Mike Lull, Lakland, etc. No 35" scale instruments, please. +/- cash as appropriate.
