I was out for a walk yesterday, enjoying the beautiful weather in Virginia and my path took me by the local pawn shop so I decided to stop in. First thing I notice is a pretty red bass hanging behind the counter thats... LEFTY! So I browse a bit first then go look at the bass. Its an Ibanez, SR style bass finished in a metallic red. It's got 4 chrome knobs and PJ style active pups. The lady behind the counter got it down for me. It really needed to be cleaned, and even then had a few very minor chips/scratches in the finish. Strings looked like garbage, it was way out of tune, and the neck felt somewhat rough. She said I could have it for $180 and I was very tempted. But Im still a new player, just got my SX a month ago and all I have is their cheap practice amp which I don't even know if I can run actives through. I also need to get the girlfriend a birthday present, and she plays bass like "normal" people. But if theres a lefty looking for a bass in the Hampton Roads area, this might be it!
