    Price is shipped to lower 48. Outside that, let’s discuss options/actual cost. I can ship by several carriers: UPS, FedEx, USPS.

    One month old, I’m just not bonding with it. Will come with all paperwork, original bill of sale (so no scammers can claim it’s stolen) along with matching serial number shipping box. Here’s a killer demo by one of our own TB’ers, to show the incredible versatility of this bass.

    NBD! Ibanez EHB1005-SMS Fanned Fret Short Scale in Emerald Green

    I wanted to let someone else enjoy this, before I scratch/dent/ding/drop it. Could pass for brand new, less the protective covers on the pickups. I swapped a set of TI Jazz Rounds on it ($100 value), but the original D’Addario SS string will be included (the original are not dead, I just prefer TI’s. You might like them, too!).

    The original locking output jack came defective, which resulted in a sizable discount, so I’m passing that on. Of course, this issue soured me on the concept of a locking jack, as it nearly rendered my favorite cable useless. I was able to replace the jack with a switchcraft stereo and black coated plate with stainless screws. Works perfect and as expected…. However, I will include the original jack.

    I have the same bass in emerald green. Thought I’d hate it but it’s very enjoyable bass to play! I recommend checking this one out!

    Man. I've been trying to get my hands on a used one of these for months. I know there a few new ones out there, but they are hard to come by.

    I hope the new owner loves it!
