    could be ibanez or yamaha
  4. I dont think it's either of those, see the little pointy lower horn, and what looks like EMGs.
  5. ibanez soundgear 5

    It looks pointy cause his leg is covering the rest of the horn.

    BTW how was the show...I bet it rocked...or should I say bluesed....I'm confeused.
  6. It's a high end Ibanez, I wanna say SR1205 but I'm not sure if that is the right model or not.

    It was an awesome concert. BB is 77 years old now! Still had the voice and the guitar licks though!
    I had pretty good seats. Here are some more pics.

    Definitely a Soundgear 5, and looks to be neck through. Those could be EMG's, or they could be the MightyMite DX5 pickups. They both have the logo in that spot.

    I was definitely wanting to see that concert, especially since I live right here in Lakeland, but I was out of state visiting family. I did see B.B. in Tampa last year and it was a great show. He had an older bass player, a tall lanky white guy with a Precision I believe, with him on that gig.
