    I was looking at last night when it was marked as $499. I was sorta considering buying it, but wasn't quite sure if I should. I went through some more basses and came back to it about 15 minutes later and saw the price - "$399". ****, I jumped on it. I emailed Bass NW about it to make sure it was still there and that I was seeing the price correct. They told me they had just lowered the price by $100 and it's probably going to sell fast. I believed them, I called right after they opened up today and placed my order. They said it should be arriving Thursday or Friday. I'll tell ya how much I love it when I get it :):)

    :eek: Wow, congrats man! I know I've never been a fan of Ibanez, but the whole BTB line looks pretty snazzy! ;) $399 is quite a deal for that bass.
     
  3. nice catch. It's a beauty. And from what I've heard I bet it plays like butta.

    nah, the finish is "Transparent Black". The guy at Bass NW said their camera flash gives it a purplish look.

    Man, what a steal!:)

    I wish that they had a 6 and had lowered the price on it $100.00

    I would have a new baby on the way myself!

    Congratulations. You picked a great bass, and for that price you can't get a better 5 string.

    My dream came true! I woke up this morning and I had a new bass! :D

    I gotta say this is a wonderful bass. The neck width feels perfect for my hands. The bass looks good, and it's just all cool. Sounds really good, REALLY GOOD B-STRING. That extra inch makes a huge difference for string tightness, sustain, and the fullness of the note to my ears. Very cool bass, worth a lot more than I paid for it :D
