    Ibanez SR500 with spalted maple brownburst top. Beautiful bass that plays and sounds great. Bart Mk1 pickups. 3 band active EQ with the mid-frequency switch.
    I picked this up a few months ago but never gigged it. I recently bought two basses that have been on my GAS list so something has to go. I've always been more of a passive P-bass guy. Great condition. No blemished at all on the front or the neck. The wood grain on this instrument is gorgeous. A few very small scratches on the lower back edge that are not through the finish and hard to find unless you are looking . I captured them in the pics.
    This may be the lightest and best balanced bass I've ever owned, and I've owned a lot. 7 lbs on the dot using digital bathroom scale method. My aging back and shoulder will probably hate me for selling it.

    $450 shipped CONUS well packed and in a like-new Guardian gig bag with the tags still on it. Let's try $430.

    I had an older version of these in 90s. Very great basses for the cash. I abused mine too much, unfortunately.

    Great price and if you're feeling saucy, swapping some Nordstrand Big Singles will take it to another level, but I still think the Bart MKs sound great, too.

    Good luck!
