    The SRE400 was a "spot production" model of 100-150 bodies manufactured in 1997. They were only available for six months in the USA, Canada, and Mexico. They were meant as a prototype for the Ergodyne Series using Ibanez's man-made material called "Luthite" in an attempt to improve upon the characteristics of wood when reproducing sound. It was a complete success, and the Ergodyne Series has become one of the hottest selling around. This bass, serial number C (for Korea) 6073534, was completely disassembled, cleaned, re-wired and professionally buffed out and given a complete set-up by John Baxendale of the Colorado Guitar Company. The action is sweet, and the neck is narrow and fast, similar to that of Fender Jazz. It is in excellent condition. There are a few real road worn areas that could not be improved upon, as I've tried to capture in the photos, but nothing serious. Includes new Roto-Sound round wounds and original Ibanez gig bag. I truly believe you will not find a nicer example. This is a very special bass. There was no hard shell case made back then. There is now an Ibanez hard shell case made for a new model that will also fit the SRE400. I am asking 300.00 including shipping. THIS IS NOT A SOUNDGEAR! Please read a members' comments on this bass in my previous ad on page 15.
