    I am buying another bass so selling this one to fund the other purchase. Made in Japan 1983 Roadstar II. All natural, black pickguard. Very light. Recently had the old, stuck truss rod completely replaced and a custom truss rod cover made. Frets are in fine condition. All original except the replaced truss rod.

    Comes with the Ibanez hard case. $350 shipped in the CONUS. Paypal OK.

    I will post pics of the actual bass later today but for now here is an ad showing one that looks EXACTLY like the one I am selling. It's the natural one in the middle.

    I think 330$ is a very good price for this bass w/a hardshell case. I have the 86 PJ version of this bass and it is super comfortable to play and sounds great. You could buy a new squier for this price and have the same bass as thousands of other people or you could get this unique vintage MIJ p that has its own sound...I would go vintage every time! GLWTS!

    Final price drop to $300 shipped in the CONUS. This is a very good bass. Ibanez hard case, BRAND NEW truss rod, frets leveled, original Velve tuners, etc. It's gonna cost me $40 to ship it so you are getting this for like $260.

    fun ad - the basses are pictured in front of the French TGV - the fastest train in the world when it started its service on a Paris - Lyon line back in '81. What a connection! :bassist:
