    Does anyone own or know anything about this bass ?

    I own one, but there is nothing on the internet about it, not even on the Ibanez website. It's a great instrument though ! I'm curious if anyone knows more about it, if and why it was discontinued etc.

    I bought mine 2 years ago, and I have customized it quite a bit, adding a fifth string (high c) and changing the pickup and electronics (that's being done very soon). I have it setup that way to emulate Steve Swallow's tone.

    Anyone ?
     
  2. it looks like a bass version of the ibanez talman guitar...i know tom morello and noodle both play one, and one of my old HS teachers played one too...

    Yeah, it is called Talman Intertour... but it's strangely absent from the web...
