    For sale or trade is my Ibanez BTB500. Made in Japan in 1999, the quality is quite better than the Korean BTB's IMHO.
    Thumb nail marks on front but in great shape. 18 volt p/u's, tone for days. A great bass for show or studio, versatile and quiet.
    Don't want to sell but I just bought a G&L L1K 'hog so someone has to go. :bawl:
    Price-$350 w/gig bag shipped CONUS.
    Not looking for trades unless someone has bumped their heads and has a G&L for trade! :D

    I have one just like it. Same color and same year. Also the paint and wood was dug out around the neck pick up as well. After I replaced the pickups and the electronics with all EMG(s), this bass sang. I got soooooooo many compliments from other musicians, sound guys and recording engineers. If I were to lose it, I would go around the world to find another one.

    Thanks. That is the only problem with this type of finish, the nails do dig into the wood. But hey, Fender charges a pretty penny for this kind of 'relic~ed' look.:D

    Here are a few more pics. The silks on the Rotosound PSD99's are a bit frayed but the strings ring out true. The back pic is for 1999 serial number and MIJ.
