    I was at a music shop that primarily deals acoustic instruments, and there was a.. I'm guessing 80's Ibanez Musician fretted 4 string. The wood looked in the area of walnut and it looked pretty nice, it was only about 300-400 bucks. I couldn't plug it in there, we didn't stay long. Anyone have any experience with these?

  3. i love em, had a chance of buying a passive one with two single coils and an ibanez steinberger copy for half the price of my kubicki, but stupid me passed it up
  4. I had one of these 20 +years ago...sold it to my brother for 100 bucks. It was a VERY good bass and the tone with both pick ups full on was superb. Ironically after selling it I purchased a 78 jazz bass which was an inferior in every aspect ( but I was too naieve at the time to know the difference!)

    In '88 I purchased a fretless musician and had it a while before selling it. This particular instrument was not as good as the aforementioned one.

    for 300-400 bucks you really cant go wrong my friend!!
