Here's the backstory. About 10 years ago, I owned a silver Ibanez EDA905. It was my first 5 string, and I loved the bass. For those who aren't familiar, it has a standard magnetic pickup, and 5 piezo's in the string saddles. Well, when I owned this bass, I was more or less ignorant as to how to properly setup a bass. I put thicker gauge strings on, which made the string not rest in the saddle properly, and essentially made the piezo not work. The tech I took it to couldn't figure out the problem either, and (so I thought) ruined the bass in the process of figuring it out. So I end of selling the bass, and after that, I learned how easy it would be to have "fixed" it (it wasn't actually broken). The EDA isn't being made anymore, and I've spent 8 years trying to find one in the same color, for a reasonable price, and close to where I live, because I hate buying without playing it first. Then Monday, I walk into work (I work at GC) and lo and behold, there it is-Ibanez EDA905, in silver, bought in yesterday. After getting over my disbelief that THE bass I was looking for was looking back at me, I immediately put it on layaway until I can pay it off. I'm not letting this one get away. This got way longer than I thought, but the question is, what are your similar stories? Anyone have a bass that got away, or just have always wanted, but can't seem to find? The EDA is not one of those basses that beats everything out there tone wise or anything, but it's just got that X-factor for me. What's yours?
