For sale: Ibanez Affirma (AFR) 4 string bass. I purchased this bass from a shop in Germany many years ago. It has a one of a kind trans blue finish that was done by the Ibanez factory in Japan. This was done as a show piece for a NAMM type trade show in Germany. As far as I'm aware, this is the only Ibanez Affirma produced with a colored finish so it is rare, indeed.
The bass is 20 years old and is in mint condition (nothing more than polish swirls). The body is a solid piece of flame maple. The bass has magnetic and piezo pickups, active preamp, drop tuner on the bridge, 34"scale. The bass is very light, can't be more than 7 lbs. My tech. has it at the moment just to give it the "once over" so I will have to check the weight when I get it back. String spacing is 19 or 20 mm, again - I'll confirm once she's home.
My price for this finely crafted, ergonomic, light weight, great sounding and extremely rare instrument is $2500.00
The only reason I'm selling this is to raise funds for another bass so I'm not interested in trades.
Thanks for looking.
Sorry for the crappy cell phone photos. I'll try to get some better ones up soon.
