From Sweetwater, no less!
Ibanez AFB200 Sunburst $299
I'm thinking I may have to grab one!
These are nice basses.
Brand new with a case for $434. Excellent.
I just bought one with case. 15 minutes later, Sweetwater called to make sure everything was as I had wanted it.
Great customer service as always from Sweetwater.
Ha! Was just going to post this.
I need it like a hole in the head, but what a steal.
The one in red finish is still $599, but the specs looked the same otherwise.
I ordered the case from Music123 via Amazon for $99 with free shipping to save a few bucks.
Looks like there is only one bass left on Sweetwater as of now.
If it weren't for the short scale neck, I'd have grabbed one myself. Instead, I have my eye on a Dearmond Starfire bass to fill my hollowbody needs. That Ibby sure looks sweet though - I suppose at that price I can easily flip it if it doesn't float my boat.
The DeArmond Starfires are beautiful instruments. Haven't played one, but I'm sure it's in a different class than the Aria hollow bodies.
I figured for $299, I can scratch my hollow body itch Like you say, I could flip it for something better if I really get into the hollow body vibe.
I grabbed one for that price from Sweetwater and it arrived two days ago. What an awesome bass. I just put some flatwounds on it,am even more excited now and am now looking for a gig bag.
This is my first experience with a short scale neck, but I found it very easy to just start playing, and I really like the short scale neck on this.
