Ibanez FL9 - vintage or reissue?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by stompfrog, May 12, 2005.

  1. Hello!!

    I have just got a ibanez fl9 from a second hand shop. judging by the condition it looks like it might have been around since the 80's.

    The serial number is 251262 it has a black label and says it is made in japan.

    Anyone know how old this pedal is?

    Are they any good on bass?

    It only cost 19.99 so I am happy whichever model it is :smug:

    I look forward to learning more.....

    Sounds like an original to me. I believe the newer ones are made in a country other than Japan.
  4. Looks like a i got a good deal 19.99 was in GBP i gues its about $40 but its still cheap.

    i saw an original advertisied on gak.co.uk for £100

    Does anyone have a reissue who can confirm that it is not made in japan?

    Thanks for the help so far :)
