    This is the newest limited Ibanez Premium model that has just started hitting some stores. Not sure how many will be made for sale in the US but it is a very nice looking bass. I hope to get one for my stable.

    Are those Nordstrand Big Singles with custom covers?

    Cool, nice looking bass! I like the maple fingerboard too. It looks like it's already at a retail store...

    I played one yesterday at Sam Ash on 34th St. Lovely bass, very nice B string, heavier than a standard SR, the Nordstands are punchy and bit bright in active mode (at least the one I played). I REALLY wanted to take it home but I need to pay off some other gear first. That said, I'll definitely be picking one of these up....
     
  6. Owning mostly Warwick, Tobias, Modulus & Fender Basses, I just bought one of these today from Sweetwater sight unseen. I know enough about tonewoods, Bass construction, pickups and electronics to know that this Bass has to sound great! A Wenge & Bubinga Neck with Titanium truss rods and a Birdseye Maple fretboard, this baby will have the punch, attack and sweetness that these woods can provide! The Bass arrives tomorrow and I will post my hands on review!

    I had been eying and even talked to my sales rep from sweetwater yesterday about 1 of the 3 they had in stock. If it hadn't been for me buying 2 basses already from sweetwater this year I would have got it. I'm anxious to hear your feedback on it. They are beauties for sure.

    Sweetwater tells me it has been discontinued.

    I thought it was fairly new...
