I really like these bass but I have another similar BTB with the same electronics. This bass is a couple months old and looks like new still. Absolutely no scratches and everything is perfect. I have the original soft case that come from factory or will be willing to sale with a Ibanez hard case. Will be interested in equal value or better value 5 strings. Just let me know what you have. Trades wanting: Ibanez BTB 1405 or another 5 string with nordstrand pickups. 1020.00 shipped with Ibanez soft or with hard case 1100.00shiped.
