    This bass is in very good condition. The frets have some wear, but they have alot of life left in them. Nice low action with no fret buzz.

    It has a DiMarzio P and DiMarzio J pickups in it. They are the original pickups and sound killer. The controls are; P-pickup volume, J-pickup volume, master tone, Preamp boos volume, 3 way pickup selector switch, and series/parallel switch for the P-bass pickup.

    I added Mother of pearl dot inlays on the neck, and did the custom mountain scape inlay on the headstock. Everything else on the bass is all original. It comes with the original Ibanez hardshell case.

    I'm looking to trade the bass for another bass of equal value.

    Here are some pics;

    I have one of these-- the range of tones on it is just great! Best of luck finding a new home for it. Epitome of a solid bass. Dig the shiny brass saddles...

    And I'm a back country backpacker.. I should find something to trade you so I can match my two hobbies!
  4. I have one of these, only a '79, and they are tanks. You could take it out back and hit baseballs with it. They have great tone and playability too. Somebody snag it!
