1985 IBANEZ RB650

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by steviebass, Dec 13, 2012.

  1. I just got a 1985 Ibanez RB650 Roadstar II red w/ black pickguard. The paint is okay and plays pretty good.
    I want to really do up this BASS! I hear duncan/dimarzio pick-ups are real good for it and I want to have GOLD BRIDGE/TUNERS!!! And I hear flatwound Fender/Rotosound strings work well with it.
    Any Advice would be much appreciated.
    Thank You.

    Depending on what sound you're going for there are quite a few other pickup makers so research in the electronics subforum is advised.
    There are a few different types of strings, both in material and construction and tons of strings manufactures. Research in the strings subforum is advised.
  3. Funk/R&B/Soul/Disco/Rock please see my fav Bassists
    and also I am CLUELESS on measurements, sizes, left/right side and reverse tuners etc etc...
    Thanx much!
