1985 Ibanez RB850 on CL. Worth?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by the byronic man, Apr 9, 2011.


  1. Stumbled upon what appears to be an Ibanez RB850 on my local CL today. Hard to tell from the photo, and the ad barely even mentions the bass itself. Waiting on a reply from the seller, but i was wondering what if it would be worth $250 assuming it is what it appears to be. Anybody have experience with these? Tried a few searches but didn't get much, especially regarding pricing.

    the ad is for the amp, with the bass sort of tacked onto the end.

  2. i know we've got some Ibby lovers out there. anybody?
     
  3. I collect , play and love Ibanez basses. I love my Musicians and Studios, that bass is well worth 250 ( Steve Harris from Iron Maiden actually played one a lot ion the 80s) as long as the neck is straight.

    I have that exact same bass, man. Down to the same year and even color. It's a great player and a solid bass. Like angrypanda said, it's worth it assuming there's nothing major wrong with it.

    In my experience these are great basses for the prices. I had a RB960 from 1985 some years ago and it was a fun bass. I sold if for $400 without the original hardcase, IIRC.
     
  6. The information and help is greatly appreciated. Thanks everybody!
