Still thinning the herd. Next up, an absolutely pristine Ibanez ATK 750QM-ATB
. This is the twin-pickup version with ash body and maple neck with walnut stringers. The "QM" indicates quilted maple top; the "ATB" indicates antique burst finish.
The bass is in dead mint
condition. I bought it new a couple of years back, but never played it. I just couldn't get used to that thick, chunky neck. I've been playing pencil-necked Jazz Basses for 25 years, and these thick necks don't feel right in my hands. This bass has sat in the case for years.
Strung with Elixir strings. Comes with an Ibanez hard-shell case. Asking just $375
plus shipping for everything. Not interested in trades...need the space!
Here are the pics:
The quilted maple top is spectacular. Phenomenal grain. Got lucky with this one:
Not a scratch on the back. The stickers protecting the control cavity covers still haven't been removed:
Neck is stable. Fretwork is basically perfect:
Comes with Ibanez case. The case is close to 20 years old. I had another bass in it. But it's in great shape. I don't gig, so my cases are just used for storage:
Finally, some case candy:
Again, my asking price is just $375 plus shipping
, case included. I need to clear out some space in the apartment. I just bought a Linc Luthier and I'm drowning in basses at the moment!
