    SOLD

    Here's the scoop on this one

    Northern Ash
    All Maple neck - looks to be three piece!
    Custom pearloid pickguard
    Original tuners

    I had used this as my primary bass having upgraded the the pickups, bridge and preamp. I eventually parted components out, all that remains are the Dimarzio Ultra Jazz pups.

    Bass has a handful of small nicks, but for nearly 40 years old it's in great condition. It's a bit on the heavy side but the bass is of extemely rock solid condition,

    Things you'll want to do - one of the tuning keys needs to be replaced and the screws for the pups have stripped out...so you'll want to drill these out and put new ones in to adjust the pickup heights... and you may need a fret job as there is a little fret buzz here and there...

    I'll include the original bridge and ash tray covers....as well.

    Here's a pic of the bass last summer in all it's glory. I'll take new pics tonight and upload them for you.

    $300 + shipping

  2. I'd like to see a good shot of the headstock- some of these Ibanez basses have a very accurate(as in quite close to Fender)HS profile whereas some are not so close. Kickin basses either way(IME).

    I can take a shot of the headstock for you. I can tell you that the pickguard had to be custom cut as a standard pickguard didn't fit the pup routs...

    I had an Audere in this with a Hipshot bridge and it just smoked!!

    I am a huge fan of these basses- some of the nicest slim necks ever in my opinion! Yours appears to have 70s pickup spacing too (I think mine was closer to 60s). What could convince you to get rid of it?

    ...well that's why it's a feeler. And my Dad did give it to me— he played it for years...babied it for years...

    And I have a baby on the way and I'm not playing it right now...I'm considering other items to sell or trade down for, as well...

    Oh and I've got multiple crazy bass faces this being the most normal of them....:eek:
