    Anyone ever heard of an Ibanez GT (or maybe CT with the T inverted on the C) series 4 string EB?

    I recently bought one used and it sounds pretty good. Any thing you guys know about them would be great!

    Thanks,
    Gabe

    Sorry, I'm not able to get pics at the moment. Let me describe it though.


    IT has a black body with 3 pick-ups, the long pickup at the bottom says xjactive, the one in the middle doesn't say anything and the top one say xp2active. There are 4 knobs on it. The neck is thin and the back of it is wood colored. Fretboard is dark wood colored.The head ( I think that's what it's called says GT series (or maybe CT series) and has Ibanez written on it. The tuners are black and metal. It's a 4 string. It says that it's made in Korea (I hope I am not funding nukes with this thing). The serial number on back says 9204729.

    I apologize for my lack of knowledge of BG terms; I'm mostly a DBer. I appreciate the input!

    Could you be talking about the BTB series? I can understand how the mirror imaged, scripted "B" can be confused with a G.

    On the other hand, I don't believe any BTB four string has 3 pickups, as well as black hardware. It seems we have a mystery wrapped in an enigma covered in BBQ sauce. :D

    I think he's trying to describe a p-j config.

    I'm pretty sure that it's not a B, unless someone did pretty good alterations. It sounds good and thats all that matters.

    Thanks for the help and If i can get picks I'll post them.

    I've got an ibanez ct series and for a while I thought it was gt but this bass sounds nothing like what I've got
