    What was the Ibanez Bass with the EMG's, pointy headstock, shark tooth/fin inlays and neon colors? Geared towards the hair metal guys, one ad that I remember had Racer X in it. Anyone have one that they want to get rid of? Pics?
     
  2. Have a look in the catalogs at:

    Are you thinking of the Roadbass (see 1989 catalog). Doesn't look like it came stock with EMG's though.

    I now have 2 ibanez basses, (ATK 305 and 300 won auction today), but no pointy ones! Got a pointy Ibanez g****r though... Not selling...

    From looking at the catalogs, the ones that I am referring to are the Late 80's Roadbass and SBass series. Thanks for the info.
     
  4. No problem. Good luck with finding one - given the pointyness factor, they may well be at a great price point if you do!
