    ok, i have falled in love with an ibanez 6 string bass(or i think its an Ibanez) wich is realy against everything i have said before :p (well, i chang to that im never gonna play an bass with an odd number of strings :p)

    Any way, i have no idea what its called, and it looks like an mix between two ibanez basses..

    Sure looks like one of those Ibanez Soundgear Prestige basses with the padauk top. They've got 'em at Guitar Center (God I hate that damn store).

    its kinda looks like 1306. I was looking at buying one on ebay and they both have the same markings at the end of the fretboard.

    and still no angled tuners, which is standard on almost all Ibanez I thought. /ponders

    I think they are angled. Look at the top three tuners. They look swept back to me.

    Cant really tell I guess, but looks like they are just turned so they look kinda like they are from across the headstock.

    That's the Ibanez SR1306. I have the 5-string version. That's a great bass.

    It is an SDGR for sure. I know this because i have seen/held so many. The headstock design is right. Tell me if i am wrong..

    No, it's a 1306. Discontinued, I believe.
