    A bass full of orange pointy goodness. This is a late 80's (I think) Ibanez EX405. Pretty rare double P pickups. Satin orange refin. Cool, fun bass. Tinted neck. 1.57" nut width.
    Will ship with a pair of spandex pants, and a can of hair spray. OK, so that part isn't true.
    $169 shipped CONUS !!! Price drop to $150 shipped CONUS !!!

    It does sound sweet, no doubt about it.

    I have not attempted to date it exactly based on a serial number, but I think these were only made for a few years, maybe 88-90? Also, I really don't know the country it was manufactured in. Maybe some Ibanez gurus here on TB can chime in.

    By the way, I didn't mention that this bass is light, in the 7lb range, and has excellent balance.

    88-90 is correct. I had an EX-404 in metallic red, but the more common P/J configuration. These are nice basses for the money.

    Thanks for the info MonetBass. I thought it was 88-90 vintage but wasn't 100% sure.

    I have two Halloween gigs coming up. Maybe I'll play it at one or both of those.

    I've been out of town and haven't paid attention to this ad in several days.

    Let's bump and drop the price to $150 shipped CONUS. I need a new backup amp.

    Bumping this back up.
    $150 shipped CONUS.
    Also will trade toward a 2x12 cab or a Carvin BX500. I might consider other amps and cabs similar to these.

    Picked up a BX500, so I would prefer the cash. Might trade towards the right 2x12 cab. Offers?

    Last bump before I close the thread and just keep it.
