Help needed: Picture of a 1988-1989 Ibanez bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by SansFret, Feb 8, 2006.

  1. Hi everyone,

    After seeing the "Ibanez Club" thread, I started looking to see if anyone had a bass like the first one I ever owned.

    It was a 1988 magenta (dark pink) Ibanez that got stolen from my house. From what I can remember, it had a P/J configuration and a rosewood fretboard. It was not a soundgear model. In fact, it looked like the Ibanez guitars that Satriani and Vai used in those days...

    If anyone here has a bass like that or a picture of such an instrument, you'd be very kind to post it or PM it to me, so I can show my wife that I DID once play a pink bass...

    Thanks a bunch!!

    I had an EX405 that killed. My 87 Ric got stolen along with my amp. I went to "Richies Music" in Rockaway NJ and told my buddy Richie (Not the owner, his name was Jim) that I needed the best dirt cheap bass he knew of... he pulled me out a dark blue EX405. I used it for about 2 years before letting a student have it.

    What a great tone it had.
  4. THAT'S IT!!

    The bass was a Roadbass 707. I remember the black hardware and all. My first REAL bass.
    I used to play this thing through a Traynor cube and it just rocked!!! I was playing in the basement and my grand mother, who lived upstairs from us could ear every single note.
    I would probably still have it if some jerk hadn't broke into our house and steal every piece of valuable we had back then...but anyway.

    Thanks a lot guys!!
