    Vintage Ibanez RB850, made in Japan. Scratches and small nicks throughout, but I'd still consider this bass to be in great shape. Nice straight neck, frets show light wear, Schaller straplock buttons, just set up with low action. Weighs 8 lbs. 2 ozs $275 Shipped. Paypal is good.

    1.6 inches wide at the nut. I'd say the neck profile is between a standard Jazz and standard Precision(B neck). Weighs 8 lbs. 2 ozs. on the digital scale.

    I've got one and it's great.

    Do your coil-splitting pots work?

    These are very comfy to play with the smaller contoured body.
    Very Spector like, contoured top and dished back.

    Better than Spector, IMO, since they actually kept the bridge near the back of the body, making the whole thing a little shorter and better balanced with the upper horn reaching nearer to the 12th fret. I find Spectors have terrible balance and the necks get pushed out real far due to the bridge being closer to the middle of the body, which combined with the short upper horn means you're constantly pulling the bass down against the strap which is fighting upwards across your body.

    /Spector rant.

    Love these basses, very much like my first ever Roadstar that had a single humbucker rather than the double.

    GLWTS! Though if you resort to trading at some point, let me know!

    Coil cutting works great! as do all of the pots/electronics. Yeah, I agree with the Spector comments...this one balances much better than a Spector and the 1st position isn't nearly as "far away".
