    The banana has landed. Polar white faded to pale yellow. It plays and sounds great.

    Nice! ‘85 was a great year for Ibanez. My RB850 is of the same vintage.

    It was a great year. I have a 1985 Ibanez AS-80 guitar that is a peach as well. Japan had some mojo then.

    Congrats!I love those mid 80's Ibanez basses. I have an 85 RB850 too and would love to pick up an MC from that era as well.

    You don't see many new basses in pearly white metallic.

    Lovely! Mine is cream as well. The only surprise was that the neck was a bit thicker than the other Ibanezes of the same age.
