    hello everyone :)

    i'm new to the board and also to playing bass, i wanted one since i can remember but never had the money nor actually the time to get one and try, lately i have been trying to play guitar and i like it altho i still know i preffer a bass much better (i have tried some before)

    right now i see one on ebay, it is rather cheap :

    and am thinking of getting it, (i am left handed yes)
    thing is i have no idea about this bass, i know the ibanez BTB400 serie and like them alot altho i cant afford it right now,
    can anyone either tell me what kind of questions i should email the seller about? or if this seems a good deal for a begginer?

    i would really appreciate some advise :)

    thanks alot!!

    Hey dude...why import from Holland? The price in US is about 170 $..in canadian 220$..Ibanez has ok bass guitars..I have a SR 500, but I cant believe you cant find something In the Amerikas...accept you are from Europe...You can even get a used P Bass made in Mexico for that money...anyhow good luck

    Hang around here for a bit, and do some research on basses. Don't buy the first one you see.

    its not the first one i see :)
    its the first one i see i can afford AND is for left handed people...

    so i'm very intrested :)
  8. Hi, it looks like an older model, because I don't recognize the shape and "CT-series" doesn't ring a bell. Don't get me wrong, I 'm not saying it's a bad bass because I've never heard of it ;)
    Anyways, I would ask it's age and if it has been used for gigs.

    BTW Robbase,

    That's German... :smug:

    Do you live nearby this dude? If so you can go test it, and if you know someone who has some experience with guitars/basses, ask him to come with you. He could spot things like warped necks, cracks, etc.. Haven't heard about the CT series tough..

    Waar in Nederland woon je? ;)

    that is what i have found about it : (seems to be only reviews of the 5 stings version)

    hehe right now in parijs, thats why i cant go and test it but i have friends in holland who it can be delivered to so its no problem..

    i have indeed asked him how old it is and how often he used it and stuff :)
  11. Ibanez basses are very good for the price, i think the SRX series are much better than the SR series, ive never been a fan of the normal SR's (well, not the lower end ones)
