    "Bass in good condition, was given to me and I don't play it. 4 strings on it but has the potential for 5 strings."

    ha ha....the best way to have both a 4 and 5 string bass. Sometimes we over-complicate things here at TB -why argue till we're all blue in the face over the merits of a 5 string over 4 when such a simple solution is possible. Not surprising, such a revelation came from a non bass player.

    That nut looks a bit funky. Might be the picture but I’ve never seen any bent like that.

    Looks like a cord or rope around the headstock, like a lanyard, or even an acoustic guitar style strap, not a bent nut.
    Its at least a 305 level Ibanez.
    Hilarious "4 strings, potential for 5 strings"!

    It's an older SR305 with the ''style sweeper' pot and the too-much-curved p'ups. Well worth the price. Decent hardware. Buy it and pull the frets. :hyper:

    The price is definitely right. If I were looking for another bass or project that would be the one.

    Can’t do that. It wasn’t listed as a “potential fretless.”
