    I can't seem to find any info on my bass anywhere(Ibanez' site doesn't have any info on it, and I bought it second hand at a pawn shop back in October so I didn't get the manual for it.), except that it was made in 1997(I think).

    It's an Ibanez TR75 5 string Electric.

    All I know about it what you can glean from looking at it, it's got a smaller neck than a standard 5 string(The neck is the same size as a standard 4 string).

    Everyone keeps telling me it's a good bass, but I think they're basing that mostly off of looks.

    They're solid basses. I've played a couple, and they're nothing to shake your fist at. I personally preferred the Soundgears during those years, but I have played a show with a TR70 (4 string version) and liked it very much.

    I couldn't vouch for your date estimate, but it doesn't really matter does it? ;)

    The date doesn't matter, but I want to find out exactly what the knobs do.

    I know one is tone, and the other two seem to each control the volume of a pickup.(ie: knob 1: pickup closest to the fretboard, Knob 2: 2nd pickup, Knob 3: Tone)

    Thanks for replying by the way, I had already assumed this thread was doomed to the abyss of unanswered forum threads.

    That sounds right. I seem to remember the TR-70 having the V/V/T (volume/volume/tone) control layout like a jazz bass.
