Hi all, Thanks for looking in. Bassplace is selling an Ibanez BTB 600E on eBay. Auction address is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=4713&item=2371334010 Bassplace says it is a discontinued model, but there is no info that I can find anywhere to confirm this.(including searching here and Ibanez.com) I have emailed Bassplace and they have no additional info. Is this good quality and pricing compared to the other BTBs? Made in Korea or Japan? Is their starting price of $495.00 a good deal? Are the angled pickup locations going to make any difference in the balance of the tone across the strings? Any links to cataloges or other info from Ibanez? I wonder why the model was discontinued so soon after its release. Thank you for any help you can give, Dave.
