    I have decided to sell the Ibanez SR505 that I bought new in March of this year. I practiced with it exclusively for a couple of months and struggled to become happy with five strings. Then on a whim I tried tuning my four-banger in fifths to get the same range and quickly fell in love with that concept which meant the Ibanez began to gather dust. I don't see myself using the Ibanez again so I would like to sell it to make room for another fifths tuned four. It is in like new condition, it has the original Elixir strings and an Ibanez detachable backpack gig bag. I am asking $400 shipped or $350 for a local pickup (northwest suburban Chicago). PayPal is fine.

    Thanks for your consideration,

    Ken Hutchinson

    Player's Bench is indeed a great shop. They have a friendly and knowledgeable staff like pretty much every store of any kind had back in the 1960's and before, but without the "Fair Trade Law" high prices. Don't know how they manage to do it but they compete pretty well with Guitar Center unless you need something like a clarinet or a trumpet mouthpiece: GC isn't even in the running for those kinds of things. Does GC sell didgeridoos?? ;)

    Well worth a visit if you live in the area.

    I do not know the weight off hand, I will try to get that to you tonight. The Ibanez SRs are noted for being lightweights and it certainly is noticeably lighter than my Fender Deluxe Active Jazz.

    So, my wife's electronic kitchen scale says the SR505 weighs 7 lbs, 7 oz. That is with strings and battery but no strap.

    I realize the concern over buying an expensive item from someone with no sales history and therefore no feedback. We all have to start somewhere though and while I could buy/sell a few cheap items here to get some feedback history I'm not sure how that would guarantee to anyone that I could be trusted on an expensive transaction. ;) I see that the Guitar Center near me is having another used equipment buy/sell event later this week so if I can't get a buyer here I will just take what GC will give me and move on. But until then, if anyone here is interested I will sell this bass for $300, local pickup or you pay actual shipping.
