    Anybody got one of these? Came across them the other day and wouldn't mind buying a SR1006EZWNTF except for the fact that;

    a) it's a 2005 limited edition
    b) i'm in australia
    c) i've googled and searched talkbass and i've found nothing. im guessing not many of these were actually made.


    so has anyone played one? if so, what do you think?

    i can see im entering an unwinnable battle here trying to find one of these :bawl:

  2. Haven't seen one of those in Australia. Those basses are very hard to come by over here. Your best bet is to try American stores.

    yeah that's what i think i might have to do

    but im thinking i'd be extremely lucky to find a store that has a new one in stock still from 2005. im probably going to have to find one second hand

    i might send ibanez an email when i get home to see how many were actually made and if there is any left
     
  4. Good idea. If you're after a new bass still in production, just give the boys at the Bass Centre in Melbourne a yell and they'll do their best to get the bass of your dreams.

    Pretty sure this is the one I'm looking for...

  6. Yeh. Actually, I'm 90% sure they were a Samash exclusive bass. Meaning Ibanez only made them for the company Samash, who are a large music instrument online selling thing. Address is here. Not sure if they ship overseas, but you might be lucky.

    Try www.samash.com and do a search for that bass. Sorry, I couldn't find the exact link as the server is down or something.

    well, as far as I know, I'm the only one with a 2005 SR1006LE, but mine is not the zebra wood, it's the burled poplar which looks even better in my opinion.

    It cost me 1500 new with the case, but since it is no longer made, I'm not sure if the price would've gone up or down. Hwoever, this is a fantastic bass to play and hear, I wish you luck finding one.
