    i was offered this bass in a trade, and since i cant find a single piece of information about it, i decided to come here as a last resort. if its real, can you let me know the model, specs, and maybe what its worth?

    anyway, here's the pictures i have


    thank you
  2. Looks pretty solid. I'd say that's a real Prestige model. I've never seen close up pictures like this before. This Prestige looks close to my Warwick Thumb. Thanks, now I'm GAS'ing for this model.

    i'm sorry. i didnt mean to offend anybody. i'm just not a forums type person. who knows though. maybe i stick around if i like it here :)
  7. Are you offering a free bass where I'm only paying shipping charges? :)
  8. Prestige 6-string models have been labelled as both SR3006 and SR5006.

  11. I've only played the non-prestige models (506) but this is the made in Japan model and if it's supposed to be better than the SR 506, it will be an awesome bass.
  12. You could get a TalkBass paid membership and post it in the Bass classifieds section.

    According to the link above, this model of SR sold for $700 at that time. And it sold within 2 days.
  13. Those are great basses.
  14. Hey man, I'm doing some research and I'd love to help you but your serial number looks very weird... can you get better pictures of it? Nowhere can I find a 5 digit serial number for Ibanez. They're all 6 or 7 and usually include a letter as well as the serial number

    EDIT: Looks like the above was like that. I may have found something

    Yeah, a good old (and very dirty) SR 3006, this is the version with the Ibanez pickups, before they switched to Barts. This is like the first Prestige branded bass of all time or something like that, lol
