    I found this NOS Ibanez SR5BBLTD at a steal of a price and jumped on it. I've owned several Ibanez Premium basses in the past and have loved all of them. They are hard to beat for the price. This was the bass Ibanez used in their photo shoot when they released these basses.

    Yes! That is gorgeous. I've got an SR1205e and once I realized how much I enjoyed it, I've had eyes for the Burl model ever since. Particularly the Poplar, but the Buckeye is awesome. I love the matching pickup covers.

    I've always been a Premium and Prestige Ibanez lover. I found a deal I couldn't pass up on one of the nicest looking Premiums I've seen. I had to buy it, At least that's what I told my wife lol.

    Now that is a pretty bass. Kind of reminds me of the MTD Kingston Z 4 I was looking at last year. Enjoy the bass, I know I would. drool

    This is the best Ibanez Oremium I've owned out of the 8-9 I've had. I've contacted Devin from D-Cline designs to make some custom wood Knobs to match the bass. He is the guy who made all the wood covers for this bass series and the Ibanez SRSMLTD series to. Very nice bass.
