    is there a thread somewhere or club or silo or solitary confinement wing for Pre-1984 Ibanez basses? trying to get a shortlist of models or identifying marks together

    well i could be wrong - i was chatting to one of the local Austin-area pros and he mentioned pre-84... maybe pre-85 is correct. basically i got that the idea was pre-lawsuit days, designed and/or reverse-engineered, and made, in Japan. from snooping around ebay [where it is difficult to refine, not knowing names or model numbers] I don't see any "bargains" in that era. looks like everyone is looking for the few availables

    There's always www.ibanezcollectors.com, which, to be fair, is more geared towards our shorter scaled, six string brethren, it does however, have some acknowledgement of Ibanez's bass output.
  6. The lawsuit occurred in 1977. It may not be as encyclopedic as you're looking for, but Ibanez: The Untold Story is a great read.
