    That's one of the nicest Musicians I've ever seen. I think that Those basses were among the best things Ibanez ever put their name on, pardon the preposition.

    Well, there are a few on E-Bay at the moment...but this one blew me away...and if I had ANY dough, I'd bid to win on the sucker...

    I had one of those for a short time - just about the most comfortable playing bass I've ever laid hands on (caveat: I've never played any real high-end stuff). The sound, however, didn't excite me much when compared to my L2000 at the same time.

    One of the few basses I regret parting with.
  7. Those Musicians are regarded by most older players as being the best bass Ibanez ever made. The only drawback was the fact that they are fairly heavy. They were way ahead of their time, left Fenders in their dust. They had ebony boards, active AND passive preamp (that's why all the knobs), separate battery compartment, full cavity sheilding (in metal, no less), and were possibly the only commercially made bass at the time to have all those features. The fretless version was particularly held in high esteem. Sting was a high profile user.

    I had one EXACTLY like that one from '79 until '83. I was my main gigging bass during the time I was playing as a pro (7 gigs or more a week). One of the best basses I ever had. If I didn't have 10 already, I'd go for this one on eBay, it is a very very good bass.
