Hi folks! I just got an 80 Ibanez Roadster RS824. Wow, what an instrument it is! I have had all the high end basses one can name and this little Ibby smokes them all out! It's loaded with EMGs but the original white pickups are included. The wood is absolutely resonant being very light. All the notes can be felt in your chest as soon as your finger touches the strings. I own a 62 and a 78 original Fender Jazz basses but this Ibby plays and sounds even better. Just amazing! And what's even more attractive - the prices are extremely low for those early Ibanez basses. Do yourself a favour and buy one before the prices go up.
