Ibanez Musician Bass 1979 -- vintage

  • Price:$1075.00

Up for bid is a 1979 Ibanez Musician bass guitar. This is the Holy Grail of vintage Ibanez basses. This particular model is a tone monster. Bass weighs between 10 -- 11 pounds. All electronics work as they should. This is an active bass with a mean temperment. She is not for the weak. Neck is straight. Plenty of life remain in the frets. The pickups are angry, with loads of crunch, growl, and spit. Add some verb, a small bit of chorus and delay and you will stand out on any stage. You may need compression as the active electronics can fry any mix. I am using two Symmetrix 501 units and I now have the desired tone I was looking for. Took me over 20 years but this bass is a major part of it!!


I have owned her for several years. I am selling because I have 4 other Musicians and this one gets no playing time. Guitars are meant to be played and not stored in a case.


This bass has a non-original TKL hardshell case, and has no tears inside or out. Latches work on the case and the lid is not warped. There are marks on the body, as to be expected from a vintage bass. She has NOT been abused. The pics captured the "worse" wear. 


5-21-2012: This bass is now listed locally. I will NOT END THE AUCTION EARLY if a bid has been placed.


I reserve the right to cancel any bid, at anytime, as I deem fit.
