    A couple of years ago i picked up a 2nd hand but mint condition bass. From what i can gather it is an:
    "ibanez SDGR prestige 51846"
    It has 6 knobs which include presence, the e has a latch which when opened automatically drops to d, the sound is so immaculate that after gigs and during rehearsals other bassists often ask me what i play and is extremely light and is the easiest bass i have ever used.
    Out of interest i've been searching on the internet to see if there are any other similar models but have been unsuccessful. Does this bass sound familiar to anyone??

    Dunno about you, but it sounds like a high end Ibanez Soundgear with a Hipshot Xtender (common aftermarket mod.) Couldn't tell you exactly with the model (does it have anything written on the back of the headstock?) It sounds like the 51846 is a Serial Number. I believe the Prestiges are made in Japan
