    Ok im a newbie and im really trying to find a 6 string bass. This guy has a SR1306PD but he says its made in japan. I dont know much about manufacturers and stuff but does this mean its a knock of or its just were it was made?

    The top Ibanez basses are crafted in Japan. So it is the top of their line however long ago I would presume. Just because it is made in Japan doesn't mean it is a knockoff.

    That is a top end SR bass, if you like it that is a very fair price. Ibanez is a Japanese company, so you want a Japanese bass over an Indonesian or wherever they out sourced them too. It is the same reason you want a US Fender, home built stuff is always built to the highest degree.

    I wouldn't buy the bass sight unseen, I hated my SR and would never want to own another for a plethora of reasons. Some people love theirs. Look into reviews though, I know the SR506 I had couldn't be intonated, after reading reviews, it wasn't just mine, none of them can be.

    That may be true, but I don't think that a Japanese Ibanez would have those issues. Unless of course the owner didn't take care of the instrument. I would agree though, go try it out before you buy it.
