    Here' my main/only bass. I got it cheap with amp for $350.00.

    It plays great, but I don't know anything about the electronics. It does use a 9v battery, but the selector switch doesn't change it, so it must be diconnected. But it is so nicely made.

    If somebody else could tell me anything about this era of Ibanez, I would really appreciate it.

    Actually pretty cool. I've played/seen some high-end ibanezes that are really really great basses.

    I know nothing about ibanez history though...sorry.

    Here's a little on them. Nice looking bass. Ibanez must have been serious in the pre-Fieldy days.

    Studio 8-string

    Munji, thank you for that article. I can concur with the comments. I do use mine on any old gig, it's the only one I got.

    It does weigh a TON!

    If anybody else knows anything about this please post!

    So Munji, are you the "King of the World" ? ;)
  8. Wow, I love those basses! I once had the opportunity to buy one, but didn't do it as I had to save my money for something else. If I had bought it, however, I know I would have been very pleased. They look, sound och play great - don't they?
