    I've been looking for one of these for a while, and with the help of @rogerbmiller, narrowed it down to the 300, for its aggressive preamp. It is a 2007, which I think is the last year these were made with this preamp before they were discontinued again. This is the only Ibanez I've ever wanted, mainly cause I like bigger necks and don't like the SG basses. A few firsts for me, my first maple board in 20 years of playing and my first bass that is a color other than sunburst, black, white or natural.

    This is pretty beefy coming in at 11.5 lbs. The neck is fairly MM like, bass is a tank, no crackling and VERY clean tones coming off the pickup. All 3 positions are usable. Rolled fretboard edges feel really nice and you can see this was a well built bass.

    I thought the white PG was too much, so I took it off. In our studio when it is dim with a few lights, it looks like a dark crimson and the sparkle reflection is awesome. I know this is going to look great on stage. 20171007_174229. 20171007_174244. 20171007_174321. phbbtzk5bvfhqmvk9cmf.
