    I bought a new Bass guitar from a respected music store, brand new. It was about $600 AUD, all it says on the head is Ibanez SDGR? 4 pots for the eq and the knobs are plastic/rubber. It does sound nice and plays well so im assuming its not a dodgy make. I Just cant find no information on it thats all.

    Some pics to show, btw they are bad quality so that it would be allowed to be uploaded

    Obviouisly an Ibanez Soundgear. Not sure exactly which model, looks like an older discontinued model.

    It doesn't have an Accu-Cast IV bridge (which has a great, "Why doesn't anyone else use this?!?" function of matching the saddle height to the radius and raising/lowering all the saddles together to maintain that) so I'm guessing early 90's SR-400 or lower.

    hm nah i know for a fact that it isnt a early 90s model, i bought it brand new a couple of months ago. Im assuming it might be a last year model.

    Most every Ibanez I've ever encountered has the model number printed on the back of the headstock, but you probably checked that already.
