    Sorta like the Ibanez Micro, 28.5" scale. Great little bass sounds surprisingly good for the money, and the B string is actually good. I played it for about an hour and I'm once again reminded that 5 strings are not my thing at all. It is dead mint, never even left my house, plastic still on the pickups. It was set up pretty well from the factory, so I didn't even mess with it.
    I'd like to trade for a jazz bass neck with blocks/binding(maybe from a MIM 70's classic), a roadworn jazz neck, a lightweight P or J body, or an Ipad I'd have to give some cash of course. Also would consider a MIM jazz or MM sub 4 + some $$ on my end. Or $130 shipped to your door in the lower 48.

    I know info is scarce on these models, but would you happen to know what the body wood is?

    And what does she weigh? Thanks!

    These are very cool. I played one at GC the other day. I believe the body wood is Agathis, but I could be mistaken. The specific model is B-25JR IIRC.

    Thanks Selta! I can tell you it's very light. I will try to get it on a scale tonight or in the AM, but it's nowhere near my 8.5lb J bass.

    According to my semi accurate bathroom scale, 6.3lbs. I have no idea what wood the body is made of. A net search turned up nada as well.
