Custom Ibanez ?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by AllodoX, Dec 3, 2001.


  1. Does any of you have experience with Custom built ibanez basses ?

    i'm thinking of letting ibanez make me a custom bass..

    i want a 6-string EDC with 35" scale, but i have no idea how much it's gonna cost..

    Sorry to dash your hopes, but Ibanez has no custom shop open to the public. Their L.A. shop is reserved for endorsee guitars and basses only. It is not for mere mortals like us. ;)
     
  3. Like i said.. i'm not an official endorsee yet :D i will be some day tho..

    that's a good idea to throw money out of the window. go to a skilled local luthier and ask him to build the same bass. then buy a pencil and write ibanez on the headstock!!!
    ;)
     
  5. local luthiers cannot do luthlite, doh :D

    this is my idea of bass. and i'm afraid that this is not made in plastic or whatever you want to call it.
