    $450 OBO

    PRICE DROP!!! $450 obo. Any reasonable offers will be considered!

    For sale/trade is an Ibanez SR506 that has been upgraded with a MTD Bartolini preamp with the original Bartolini soapbar pickups. This bass has a monster low end, punchy mids, and a nice sparkly high end. Plays like butta! There is normal wear on a bass with one noticeable imperfection near the control knobs (shown in pics). Asking $475 obo, or as trade bait, G&L Tribute 2500, Sterling by Music Man Ray 5, Ray35, or Sub 5. If you have something else you think I may be interested in, just run it by me! Thanks for looking!

    EDIT-

    The upgraded preamp in this bass is the MTD tuned Bartolini preamp out of the Andrew Gouche Signature Kingston bass, not to be confused with the standard NTMB pre. I ordered it from Bass Central via Grasshopper. Absolutely an awesome pre! Great tones!!

    This is a pic of the preamp upgrade. Pic shows with the standard Ibanez Bartolini preamp, new copper shielding, then the new MTD/Bartolini preamp.

  3. Bump for a great bass! Love mine! And I've actually thought of giving it a Bart NTMB preamp, too.

    Give it a try. It brings out so much more in this bass! I want to go back to a 5 string is the only reason I've put this one up.
     
  5. MORE? Daaaaang. It's got plenty as is!

    I have played this bass and it is a tone monster with the MTD/Bartolini pre! The sound difference from the original pre to now is like night and day!! Oh and Michael is a stand up guy and an awesome player too
