Just Ordered an Ibanez RKB900!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by count_funkula, Feb 10, 2005.


  1. I just noticed that Musicians Friend has their Ibanez RKB900's on clearance for $349!! (Free Shipping)

    I was interested in these after seeing the review in Bass Player. They loved it. Apparently they didn't sell very well so Ibanez discontinued them.

    This is a killer deal. It comes with Seymour Duncan QP pickups, a Badass Bridge II, and Hipshot licensed tuners.

    It should be a fun, traditional sounding bass. I can't wait to put some flats on it!!

    I ordered the black one.
     
  2. Here is a picture of the one I ordered.

    You guys should jump on this deal.
     
  3. Got one a couple months ago for slightly more money. It's a no-brainer at that price. Enjoy!
     
  4. How do you like it?

    I played one of those recently... I gotta say its pretty sweet at that price. And worth every penny.

    Enjoy.

    Mine is due on Monday. I got the black one too.

    I can't wait until it's here!

    I'm hoping that it's a good match for my ATK 300.

    I was debating between the RKB and the Fender Mike Dirnt Pbass, but the added J pickup won out for me. Unfortunately, I still like the looks of the Dirnt...
     
  7. I just got back into a band after a five year layoff, and decided I would like to get a new bass. I checked out several models but kept comming back to the RKB900. When the price droped to $349 I figured it was time. I got it about a week and a half ago and I really enjoy playing it. I got the vintage fade. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine.

    Grindliner: you will see them pop up occasionally on eBay. I think all of the big retailers have cleared them out. Great bass for the money! Quality parts and extremely playable. There aren't a great many of them out there, but keep looking and you'll find one. Good luck.
