1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Can you identify this bass ?

    I've never seen an Ibanez bass that looked like that before either - if it is an Ibby; it's ancient.

    You can try here under the resources link.

    Maybe from way, way back when they were primarily competing with Teisco?

    Doesn't look like any Ibanez I've seen. Looks like one of the legion of low quality Japanese basses that flooded out of Japan in the 1960's. I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole.

    The pickguard is not original, it has been modded. Its a Teisco E-52.

    If the price would be 50$ with shipping, and you like the classic look, I'd take it

    Think again. This may be one of the very first models of Ibanez basses - the 1901 & 1902 - apparently made in 1962.

    Nope. Someone in the Ibanez forum dug up this catalog page and posted it some time later.
