    They do now. The old AFR's kicked ass. Beautiful wood. Where do the get off taking a killer old bass and making it a "new" Ergodyne??? What's next? The Musician-shaped Soundgear Deluxe???

    Luthite, single soapbar, slapcut, monorail piezo bridge(s), lovely jack connector placement, damn ugly headstock and oddly shaped body..

    It can't be bad! :)
     
  6. Yup, sorry but I prefer the originals too, in fact I dont know why they stopped making them, they were the only recent Ibanez that I liked. They seemed like a return to the days when Ibanez DID make good basses, unlike those woosie Soundgear models.

    Actually, I think I like the Luthite better than the wood, as the spacy metallic finishes complement the spacy design. It's nice to see an innovative design trickling down, despite the fact that it seems to offend the more tradition-bound players amongst us. Variety is the spice of life.

    Hmm perhaps you could cover that headstock with gray
    sock or mitten or something :D

    Yep, thing I like in Ergodynes is that silver plastic finish.
