    I have recently acquired an Ibanez Axstar 5 string w/low B. I am looking for any information that anyone has about this bass. It has great tone versatility. It has active pickups and I have noticed a lot of noise, especially when recording. I have tried various batteries and some have a lesser degree of noise. Are there any suggestions?

    I have a buddy sho used to have an Axstar. Good bass. Ibanez' answer to Steinberger in the mid 80s.

    Thanks, Appreciate the info. Any Idea of where I can find any info on it. I am particularly interested in correcting the battery noise.

    No idea. All I know is that it's a decent instrument. The body is made of plastic, I think the neck may be as well. Interesting design that's for sure.
