    This is a 1986 Ibanez Roadstar II Deluxe Bass, model RB760 Made in Japan. This is the year they switched to lighter weight basses and introduced low-impedance pickups - this model has active low-impedance pickups in the traditional P/J configuration. Three knobs: pickup select, volume and tone. The finish color is what they advertised at the time as "silver." As you can see, it's more a greenish gold now on the body.

    The bass has been well used - has dings and finish wear (see pics) including one good hit to the body near the controls. It's pretty well worn. The pics don't show every little ding and scuff due to the metallic paint. Frets are in great shape and it plays well. It appears to be all original except for the control knobs (three different ones). The strap buttons don't match but I think this is how this model shipped (someone correct me if I'm wrong on that). Also, the paint has obviously been taken off the back of the neck. It's really smooth and easy to play now!

    If you're interested in the details for this model, you can look it up in the catalog, here: Ibanez Rules 1986 US Catalog

    $250 shipped (in continental USA) in an Ibanez hard case of the period (no idea whether it's the original case this thing came in or not). The case has stickers and paint on it but is solid.

  2. Is the neck protected or just bare wood?

    I'll check when I get home. I believe any guitar with a solid finish would have a clear coat underneath but I'm not sure I would be able to tell if it is still there. The neck is very smooth, I can tell you that.

    So I looked at the neck and I can't tell for sure. It looks like the paint on the neck was very thin, whereas the body finish is much thicker. I don't see any real evidence that there's a clear coat remaining on the neck where the paint was removed.

    Still for sale! :)

    Here's the case. The outside is rough, with stickers, painted words and dings and scrapes, but the inside is in good condition and all the latches work. It's solid.

    tmp-cam-1783410235. tmp-cam-1826285000.

    Trying to convince myself that my Ibanez collection is complete.

    That 2+2 headstock is very nice paired with that body design. And P/J!

    I've got the RB690 that came out that year. Great bass. How much do you think they listed for back in '86 brand new? I've always wanted to do the inflation math

    I don't know. You can find the '86 catalog online but I don't believe it lists prices.

    Really, every TB'er who is in the market to upgrade from their starter bass should absolutely be jumping on this. The mid eighties Ibanez gear will outclass anything I play on the walls at GC under 8 or 900 bucks
