Hello everybody, I'm new to this forum and am looking for some help on finding some information on a mysterous bass I own. I've been playing bass for somewhere around two years. My first basses I got off of ebay for dirt cheap. It was 2 basses, a 10 watt amp, a hardcase, and 4 sets of ernie ball slinky strings. One of the basses is an Aria Pro II thats falling apart at the moment, and the other is the one that has me baffled. Its an Ibanez...something. I've been looking around the internet and pretty sure its from the musician seires, considering thats what it says on the truss bar cover, and what the other pictures I saw looked like. I have no idea what year it is, or even exactly what model it is. I'm hoping some people on this forum would be able to help me find out more about this bass I've had for nearly two years. Specs are as follows: -Active electronics -24 frets -4 string -4 control knobs (one for the neck pickup, one for the bridge, and tone for each) -Crafed in japan -serial number= J850856 -Original color is black I paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $50 for this one alone. It plays like a dream, spite how ugly it looks. The prevouis owner had some fun with the paint, so its now orange and silver. I recently bought a mexican fender 5 string jazz bass from a local music store, played around with it for a bit, then played this one to compare. I personally like this one better, which kinda surprised me considering I got the fender to replace the ibanez. Thanks your your help in advance. If you guys need a picture to help, I can post one, but I warn you, it isn't pretty.
