I had my Fender Jazz stolen a few months ago. It had EMG's and a custom preamp wired with a volume, tone, and a three way toggle to select pickups. It was my main bass for 16 years. Since then I have played every bass in every store within an insane driving distance and just havent been able to find the one. I was surfing the other day though and saw a Ibanez RD500! What an awsome bass for such a small price. I could'nt find one anywhere to try out so I just ordered it online. I am keeping my fingers crossed, this looks like the perfect one for me. I can't wait till she gets here!
