    I've gotten myself in deep with restoring a vintage Wal and I need to raise some money. I love this bass and its a fantastic deal for the money. These are hand-made in Japan and the quality is leaps and bounds above any other Ibanez I have played. The fretwork is top-notch. There are no rough ends, high spots, or any other issues. The neck is a beautiful cross of bubinga and quarter-sawn wenge. This is the stiffest neck I've ever had on a bass. It barely even needs a truss rod. The neck pocket is nice and tight. The body is all mahogany with some nice figuring. The pickups are US Bartolini soapbars and the preamp is a professionaly installed 18v Aguilar OBP-2 with bass and treble controls and the compartment was fully shielded. This bass was professionaly set up when I got it and playability is great. It sports a new set of DR Lo-Riders. The B string is by far the best I've ever played on a 34" scale. Its even better than the Ritter I used to have, no joke! I absolutely love this bass and I don't want to let it go, but my Wal needs me. This bass has build quality better or equal to many basses I've owned that were thousands of dollars. The volume pot is a little scratchy and so is the battery compartment. There is some players wear, which you would expect with a natural mahogany body. The worst is a series of dents on the back. Get a great playing and sounding six for very little money. You honestly can't get a great playing six with these electronics for even close to this price.

    Price: $650 plus shipping. I take paypal and money orders.

    I owned this exact model a few years back and it was a great bass. Excellent build quality and playability. With the Aguilar pre installed the only weakness I can think of is eliminated. By the way, the mahogany on the body is the nicest of any of these I have come across.

    Thanks for the kind words guys,

    Sorry, I can't take any trades right now. I really need the money to pay for the repairs to my Wal. The bass balances nicely. It has a touch of neck dive when on a strap, but it hangs a little below a 45 degree angle with a cloth strap. Here's a couple more pics.
