    I'm a little reluctant to do this, but I have two of them and would let this go if it allows me to divert the funds towards another immediate purchase. If the other bass sells in the meantime, then this ad gets pulled and it stays in the collection.

    1987 Ibanez SR800
    - MIJ at the famous Fujigen Gakki, 1987 I believe
    - Neck is fast and straight, adjusts without issue
    - Back of neck has has the gloss removed with .000 steel wool
    - Bridge is solid, tuners are nice, stays in tune perfectly
    - Active PJ system with upgraded Seymour Duncan STC-3 preamp
    - Controls are Volume (with pull up for slap contour) / Pickup Blend / Midrange / stacked Bass+Treble


    The only issue of any kind is that the original stereo-tone pot for the midrange was shot and I replaced it with a standard pot. Works the same to my ear, but just making full disclosure.

    Will ship in a somewhat beat up, sticker covered hard shell original case - if for no other reason than to get it to you safely.

    Looking for $300 shipped CONUS and Canada, or $310 west of Mississippi.

    Pics below. Any questions - aside from trade offers (will only consider an MIJ Jazz Bass Special/Boxer/Power Jazz with added value from my end) - please fire away.

    Thanks for looking!

    I could also part with the non-upgraded model for $250. It would have the original Ibanez preamp, but I would still include the Ibby hardcase. All black as well.

    These sell on the GC used site and eBay for $250-$400, so I'm at the more fair end of the spectrum considering the HSC and shipping.

    I am re-opening this thread and offering this bass for sale once again. Same as before, it's a feeler to see if I can divert PayPal funds from this to an immediate purchase. If the other item sells before I can grab it, then I will probably re-lock this thread and keep this Ibanez.

    Thanks for looking.

    From the serial number is actually looks like a 1992. Free bump for a great bass being sold at a great price!

    Thanks Jay.

    My understanding is that by 92 they had stopped with the painted necks, which were only available in the first few years of production?

    Loved my SR800, had one of the first ones made. A few years ago I sold it to a drummer friend, wish I still had it. GLWTS.

    Sorry guys... this thread was from June and at the time, was thinking to sell this to fuel another purchase. It didn't happen, so I've hung onto the bass.

    While it's possible things could change, the bass is off the market right now.
