The quality used.
it cost me US$450
Seems ok. Can you post a clip?
Have you got the money? Then the only other question is "Is it worth it to you?" We all have our opinion as to what something is worth. The most important thing is if it is worth it to you. My Hondo Longhorn from1981 is worth Millions to me but about $350 on E-bay. (OK not millions, but I love it anyway)
because now im gonna sell my ibanez edb-500 for this bass. i dont want regret. i dont know nuts about bass quality, basswood,ebody, maple, rosewood? i dont know what the heck.. so can anyone advice.
There's no way to tell until you play it. It may sound and feel great, it may not.
As far as the basic materials and construction, it's very typical - basswood body, maple neck, very commonly used woods for guitars and basses. The only thing I'd be a bit worried about is using basswood for a body shaped like that. Basswood is one of the softer woods used for guitars and basses, and pointy body shapes tend to get beat up pretty easily at the sharp edges even when they're made out of much harder wood, so I'd be afraid that it's going to end up looking pretty beat up rather quickly.
63,000.00 JPY Japan Yen = 595.635 USD
so $450 seems high if it is used
...keep the Ibanez....
On a gig you will be judged by the axe you bring, eventhough that's not right... It still does happen.
I would just hang on to the Ibanez and wait till you come across a wild looking bass for the wild gigs that you might have... Good chance that it would be for a lot less $.
really think of selling it for that... damn... what should i do now?
what should you do now?? man i think its pretty clear, first read the thread and KEEP THE IBANEZ ugh
but i like this bass and my idol is using this bass even tho it is not his signature series. is this bass really that bad? im playing rock, mostly "X JAPAN's" type of song
or should i get this instead
In all the years of giging I have, I've never been judged by what instrument I took.
then why did you ask the question if you are going to get it either way, its seems like you had already decided to buy it before you posted this thread. and like i said eairlier its almost the price for a new one, so either talk him down or pass and wait for the next one to come along
it is new. i get cheap because it selling old stock. its not second hand.
Buy something else,
umm in your first post you said it was used condition
In all your years of gigging? sorry ( )...anyways, If you show up to a gig with a 'radical-shaped' axe, You do get judged, eventhough cats might not say anything, it happens.
Ray, no disrepect, but did you ever show up to a gig/audition/rehearsal with something wild like a Warlock, Mockingbird or a Jackson Kelly-shaped?
*If you have very few basses(which I consider myself having) , my opinion would be to make what you have versatile.
Yeah man that's a cool looker and more versatile shape IM'h'O.
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight, do you REALLY think so?
