    It's an Ibanez Lawsuit Precision bass. I traded my BXR100, my Music Man HD130, and my Randall cab for it at Guitar Center. I know, they came out on top, but was desperate for a new bass. My Cort keeps breaking down, and it also has a really thin neck that i can't stand. Same with the washburn. So now i've got this. :cool: All she needs is a new set of strings, and i'll be happy. :D

    Solid! I have played one that was sitting in a GC for a while. It was nicer than half the Fenders on the wall.

    Way to go Ox. You know how I feel about those vintage Ibanez basses. ;)

    That one looks like it's in great shape too.

    My buddy has its' twin in a jazz version. Plays like a dream, got it for well under $300. Stands up pretty well to some basses over $1000.
    Same finish, great neck. Sweet. His has black blocks and binding as well.

    Check out Ibanez collectors world for info on the copy instruments.

    The silver series and challenger copy basses/guitars have 1 piece necks with the truss rods adjusting at the body and a skunk stripe, so the're a little closer to a Fender then the earlier (~pre '76) copy instruments.

    I have a 77' Challenger Jazz bass, and it's a great player. you'll be happy with that bass.

    Got burned out on some of the personalities over there. I still check in occasionally. Just not as frequently.

    DAmn good basses.

    That thing will easily last you another 20 years Ox. They're built to last.

    That looks identical. He bought his after trying out my Silver Series, which was very similar...

    Really?

    I hadn't heard that these were laminate bodies. Oh well.

    I see I was wrong about the silver series having a skunk stripe and the truss rod at the body.

    My challenger bass is black and i can see what i thought was a joint on the back of the body. I was told it was solid wood when i had it worked on. There's a lot of variation on older Ibanez's so its hard to make blanket statements about construction.
