    I bought this bass 8 years ago. I can't remember the model number. It is the high end Ibanez Presitige. I was told to seek out the ones with the skinny pickups as they were supposed to sound better. Who knows but it is a great.....I mean really great playing and sounding bass.

    I just took it to my luthier and he went through it and installed a new set of DR Black Beauties. Prefect shape as you can see by the pics. Just one belt scratch on the back. It also comes with original case which is missing one latch.

    I have no idea what these are worth. I paid $850 for it. Would like to sell quickly. Lets say $750 plus shipping. I am based in Montreal area.

    Here are the pics.

    If you unbolt the neck (loosen strings first of course) it should have the model stamped in the neck pocket. Plus if it has the full serial number on it then you can look it up on online. Some model years didn't stamp the full serial number on them for some reason. Only the last 5 digits

    My guess is ibanez prestige... it could be 1006, 3006, 4006 or 5006. Based on pots, it's either 1006 or 3006, the 4000 and 5000 haven't got the stacked pots.

    Great bass, I wish I had the money for it. Good luck, man.

    I may be wrong, but I think 3006 came in two options: ibanez pickups or bartolini pickups. I've read mixed opinions in this forum and haven't listened to it myself, so I can't say either one is better than the other.

    What pickups does your bass carry?

    Perfect. Thank you. I looked up 1306 but I couldn't find any pictures with these pickups so I wasn't sure. I was told when I bought it that it was an early version of the Prestige.

    I keep getting asked for shipping quotes to numerous zip codes. The courier websites quotes seem much higher than when you go to the counter.

    So......to save me time and hassle and you money......

    I will split the shipping cost with the buyer. That way shipping cost should not be much of a factor.

    Thanks.

    Big fan of the SR130x series. If I didn't already have funds aside for another instrument, this would be coming to NY.

    BUMP!

    Thought I had this sold. Not sure why people send offers, you accept, then they go AWOL.

    Back up for sale.

    What's the string spacing on this beauty? I'm guessing pretty tight... right?

    Yes. Very tight which makes it a great finger style bass. I believe the spacing is something like 14 - 16.5mm. I can't find the specs on this early model.
