    So yesterday I was in the DB shop when I see an EUB of a type I am not familiar with... according to the guy there, it was a *gasp* Ibanez!!! And it wasn't cheap!

    I haven't given it a test run yet, but I was wondering if anyone else had ever seen/played one of these, what they sounded like, and what the price was.

    Thanks in advance!

    Never seen one of those, although I'd be skeptical of any big name electric bass producer trying their hand at even an EUB. Who knows though it might be alright.

    I checked on Ibanez' website and there's nothing about an EUB.

    Maybe he meant Aria, which does make an EUB.

    ... or Yamaha? (the Silent Bass)

    This is puzzling me too - I've checked everywhere on the net and there is nothing about an Ibanez EUB. It isn't the Yamaha or the Aria - I know that much for sure - and the dealer swears it is an Ibanez. H'm...

    Thanks though!
     
  7. Who is the dealer?

    It's Peter Dawson's Fiddle Factory. It's the only EUB they have.

    Apologies, folks! The dealer was incorrect - the bass is an Aria SWB-4...

    Thank god. I was afraid for a minute there that Ibanez had put out a FiElDy signature model EUB.

    I felt the same strange feeling of revulsion as I heard the I-word spoken! :)
