Up for sale are 2 freshly rehab'd Ibanez Roadstars 1985 RB680... SOLD!
9 lbs, 1 oz
EMG pickups, wired VVT and active, 9v.
Plenty of life in the frets, truss works fine, setup and ready to play.
Nut has a repaired slot for the G string.
Strap buttons are installed with brass inserts and are there to stay. If you need me to change that I will, but if you use a regular strap with no straplocks, you're golden.
As you can see, plenty of dings, scrapes and dents. A lot of nail polish has touched up the bass. But you can also see, it's a 29 year old bass and for that, it looks pretty damn good.
The pickups punch HARD. This has a huge output. I haven't had a chance to play it with the band, but in the office at home, it sounds great. NO NOISE either. Dead quiet electronics. 1986 RB690
8 lbs! A featherweight!
Original pickups and 2 band preamp.
More fretwear than the 680, but still in great shape, especially for the age.
Truss works great, setup and intonated, low action.
As you can see, plenty of wear and tear on this over the years as well. A lot of filled chips, not going to lie. But it's 28 years old! In bass years, that's like... 35 or something
The neck feels great, though! No rough spots at all.
It had been mounted on another body, then remounted on this. Check the long thread for more details on that, but it's solid and will remain so, as far as I can tell.
The output on this bass is normal, about the same as my Stingray. There is single coil noise, but not bad.
Has Schaller strap lock buttons... I could probably find some locks, if interested. $200 obo + shipping
Paypal or money order
I can ship whole or take off the neck, that's up to you.
International is okay.
No case or bag included for either... though I do have a tolex Hamer USA case that would fit the 680 nicely for an extra $40
PM if interested and include a zip code for a quote, as well as whether you'd prefer whole or neck off.
Trades could be entertained, but I'm kinda picky and I'm looking to fund more projects like this, so cash is king for the moment.
