Anyone out there have pictures of one of these Ibanez Bean Basses from the 80's?
I might have one at home. I'll see tonite.
it's model MC888
I own one of those thar MC88 beanies. Its gonna be up for sale soon on Ebay, as my car has just died a death - and something has to give. Sadly
Its an 83
Sorry to hear that, Magus. Think long and hard about it!
I've still got my Jazz project to build and my Ovation Magnum 3 to plonk about on !
Unfortunately - having no car and 3 basses is not as convenient as having a car and 2 basses
There's two of those afloat on the Bay even as I post!
Have at 'em!!!
Yup - as promised i put mine up for sale. Sad day, but heck - i need wheels or i'd have to become some kinda recluse
wow that first one is cheap!
Not for much longer...
There's a couple in the Roadstar II line; these had the classic Roadstar II horns but with chamfered / beveled edges. The more well-known two-pickup active model is the RB999 which came to the States in 1985-86; there was also a cheaper version called the RB666 that had just a single passive humbucker and a natural-finish neck. I have one that I found on eBay recently, which dates from 1984 according to the neck plate. I think they came in a range of metallic / pearl finishes; I've seen pics in gunmetal sparkle, white, and metallic red.
It may have not been called the 'RB666' outside Japan. I think it's possible these versions were only sold in Japan or Europe, as mine came from a music store in Germany originally, the only review of one I've seen (at BGRA.net) is also German, and the only other ones I've seen have been at Yahoo! Auctions Japan.
Here's one in the UK.....
I wanted one of those real bad back when I was a teenager. Very cool look, with the tiny headstock and tiny body.
I'd still like an MC888 to add to my collection.
Thats it! That was exactly like mine in the 80's.
