    Got this one from a recent guitar show and can already tell it's not going to get any playing time with me. I was told everything is original except for the volume and tone knobs, but I'm no expert on Ibbys. I also suspect the case to be non-original.

    Not sure of the model number. It's got a PJ setup, three band EQ, active/passive switch, and a tone control that works in both active and passive mode. The P pu is the dominant pu. This thing has quite the beefy tone. The EQ on it is very useful, and there are a lot of great tones inside this thing.

    Nut width seems to be a hair over 1.5". Weight is 10 lbs. on my bathroom scale. A very comfy two octave neck that's not to small and not too big. Frets have very little wear on them, and everything on the bass seems to work just fine. All in all, a great bass.

    Oh yeah, truss rod cover is included (forgot to put it on for the pictures). And no trades! I want cash!!

    Any questions? Just ask! And thanks for looking.--Bruce

    It looks like you have an MC924, in the "Dark Stain" finish. Not a bad price you're offering, either. I am currently saving up for an '85 MC924; I prefer the J-J pickup configuration to the P-J setup. Good luck with this sale, though.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    How is the slap tone on it? I know that you stated that it has a beefy tone, but can you dial in a good slap tone as well? Is it possible to solo the bridge pickup?

    Well, I'm not a slapper (GASP! from the audience). And for me, tone is very hard to describe. That being said, I believe you could dial in a good slap tone. It has plenty of bottom end. And the mid eq is voiced well, too.

    Yes, the bridge pu can be soloed, as well as the neck pu. It has blend control for the pu's.
     
  6. If I could just sell my LowEND bass, I'd have enough extra to get this. I want this bass, bad!
     
  7. Someone grab this bass.I got the same model in pearl white.Great preamp - not brittle like modern Ibanez.Yeah can get a great slap tone.Real clear and beefy.Heavy while being real comfy and well balanced.Great price!

    Funkster, you would need to put on addition on your house
    if you buy any more gear, just to store the stuff.

    Those old Ibby's have a great rep, for sure!

    And that old Eden you sold me is still kicking major booty as well! :cool: :cool: :cool:
