FS: Japanese Fujigen Factory Made Ibanez SR-885

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by henry2513, Nov 26, 2012.

  1. Up for sale is my Ibanez SR-885. This is an amazing bass, it was made in 1989, in the Fujigen factory, the same factory that produces the Ibanez prestige line. This is the same model that Gary Willis played before he got his custom bass done, it would make an amazing fretless too.

    I've played a few Ibanez prestige and premium basses and this plays every bit as good, the neck is super fast and the action is slammed, down to 1/64th @ 12th fret G string. Frets were just leveled by a pro luthier who incidentally did work for the Ibanez custom shop here in the U.S.

    In fact I just picked up an Ibanez SR-1005 and the playability on this bass is easily on par. I also made a willis style ramp that you'll see in the pict below. Ships in a protec contego case.

    I'm selling because I picked up a new fretted with radiused pickups which was a big plus, otherwise this one would be staying put, it took me a long time to find this particular model.

    It sounds great here are a couple of soundclips of it in action:

    Front pickup rolled all the way off, using some strings I was testing for d'addario.

    Strung E-C


    I'm looking for $425.00 shipped (damn paypal fees), this ships in a protec contego gig bag - a $100.00 value in itself.

    SOLD $375 LOCAL

  12. Bump! This is the very same model that Gary Willis played before he got his custom GWB-1 built.
  13. Bump, get Ibanez Prestige quality workmanship at 1/2 the price used and a fraction of what you'd pay for new. Don't make me go to C-list/Ebay!
  14. Bump!
  15. Can you ship internationally?
  16. Yes, I have in the past but shipping is more.
  17. Bump
  18. BUMP for a great bass. Again, it's prestige quality and amazing playability, all for much less than what you'd pay new or used.

  20. xmas day bump and special 400 shipped!
