This is one rare bass. I have had Ibanez roadstar P basses but this is the rarer Jazz version. Its also a active bass running off 1 9 volt battery. It is 100% original. The bass is super clean with just one noticeable finish dent on the inside of the bottom horn. Besides that there is just some light dings in the clear on the back. The fretboard and frets are excellent. All the black hardware looks great with no finish loss. The bridge is a top loading bridge, fresh light guage rounds strung. The lid to the battery box was broken off. It needs a new box, obviously cheap to replace just hasnt been done. Blue painters tape holds the battery in but will not leave residue when removed. Not only is the RB690 model rare but I have seen only red and black ones, white doesnt seem to be common. It is more of a cream white, almost banana pudding. Neck is kind of between a j and p bass and the finish doesn't stick at all. I find it makes for a very slick back of the neck. Sounds close to a p-bass with the preamp rolled off and just mean with it cranked. I play it dead centre and find it's got a nice attack without much noise. You won't see this bass everywhere nor find a much more versatile instrument. I sold a 2007 Fender USA Deluxe J bass and the quality of the neck on this, fret work and all is on par with it. I'm really not in a hurry to move this, I think these are so undervalued that what can I really replace it with for the money I will net? Nothing really, basically they sell for what a squier goes for. I wont be negotiating on this one and I hope the busted battery box turns off buyers, truly am not rushing with this sale. Just looking to clear space. No case.
