  1. Hi there all!

    Some cool stuff
    If money was freed up & that SRH (Hollow body) is fretless I would like to check it out.
    That would be the highlight for me.

    I have 2 Ibanez 6 stringers that I love...and as soon as MF gets in the BTB846SC-DTL I'm ordering it...I do really wish they had a non-stained version though...The high end Ibanez basses are such a great value. I don't see them being any less of a great bass as my Kiesels and Stambaughs. And they are one of very few big companies willing to do anything creative in their bass selection.

    Man, I just bought a new SR1305-NTF. Hope they don't discontinue the model.

    I really dig this new SC body style and am wondering what street value is going to be. American Music Supply has it listed at $1099.99. I'd have bo qualm snagging one at that price.

    The 1806 premium is calling my name as well, but it's hard to outclass the 846SC.

    Lol I got to move my Bongo first, I need more strings!!!

  8. Come on, don´t let this topic dies until someone come with some audio clip, video or review of the Aerium ones!

    There's a small section of the clip on Anderton's Ibanez NAMM 2017 post of a bassist playing one of the new BTB's and it sounds fantastic also there's a full Ashula review on YouTube also
