Ever find a cheap bass - even cheaper and LOVE IT????

  1. Cheap is a harsh word, but I think you know what I mean..

    I was looking around for another bass as a back up, reliable, from someone I knew, for a LOW price. Funds are limited these days - wife is a teacher and is off for the summer... :ninja:

    Anyway, recruited a new guitarist in our band, and we practiced at his studio and i noticed a few bass length cases in the corner of his studio mingling amoung the guitar cases.. Naturally I inquired.. "Are those a few bass cases I see over there?" He brought one over and it was an Ibanez.. :meh:

    Now, I was leery, never a big fan of Ibanez. I picked it up, very light - neck was thin, looked sharp, I actually liked it. It was an SR800 model. Honestly, I hadn't played an Ibanez since I had a P-Bass copy RoadStar back in high school.. That's about 22-23 years now. :eek:

    I called him later that day and asked if he'd be willing to sell... I was after something reliable, from someone I knew - and he said he would unload it...

    I got it for $150. :hyper: Complete with the original Ibanez HS case.. With "Ibanez" in script on the side.

    Anyway, not a great find, a Lakeland, or Modulus, but in my humble arsenal, a pretty solid addition. :bassist:
  2. Good find! That's definately a good price.

    thats a awesome price for that bass. You could actually make some money on that one if ya decided to sell it down the road.

    The 800 series were sweet basses.

    That's a great price for a great bass. I got my lefty 800 for $200, tho my case is for a righty and it's a bit tight.
  5. When did they stop making that model? I wasn't able to find it on their website...
