    Looking at this in a trade, I've decided almost definately to swap for this, but I don't know what model number this fretless Ibanez Musician is. Take a look at the pics. Help if you can.





    According to the owner, the controls are V/V/T with coil tapping P/P pots on the volume knobs. The bass is fretless. That's all that is known.

    That's not a Musician--Musicians are neck-through. That's a Roadstar. I think the model number is RB800. Great bass! I had one like it in the 80's.

    Bit more research and looking around and it looks like an RB850 to me. What's the going rate on one of these?

    Looks like they are going on the bay between 100 and 200.

    No, it says Roadstar II at the top. I'd say $200-$300, great basses!
