Ibanez MC824 Musician Bass Natural 1990

Ibanez MC824 Musician Bass, made in Japan 1990, natural satin finish. The Musican is a 80s icon, finding fame with esteemed players like John Entwhistle, Sting and Adam Clayton, among many others. The model disappeared from Ibanez's international catalogs in 1987, but a Japan only version popped up briefly in the early 90s... ta-da! There's good reason these were loved: it's a pleasure in the hands and a glory for the ears. The neck is exceptional: three pieces of gorgeous tightly grained maple for strength and resonance in a well-played satin finish in a super friendly moderate round profile... it's hard to put down. The combo maple and ash body means you get a mammoth midrange and very precise, tuneful top end, all balanced by a thick, juicy low end with huge punch. The electronics give you a Jazz Bass style V/V/T setup, but with a bonus switchable two band EQ for added pizzaz. The gold hardware and walnut stained wings certainly make for a bold look: this has a certain self-assured grandeur that lends it a certain royal swagger. These don't come up everyday so nab yourself a winner while you can.

Model: Ibanez MC824 Musician
Made: Japan, Fujigen plant, 1990 (serial F045803)
Finish: satin natural over walnut stained ash and natural maple
Body: sen ash wings, rock maple centre
Neck: 3-pice maple with ebony board, 12" radius, 34" scale
Weight: 4.460kg
Mods: none
Pickup: Ibanez 'LO-B' 
Case: none

Cosmetic condition notes: minor finish wear. Headstock has some minor scuffs on the end. The neck is clean and smooth in the hands, just a few minor dimples on the back. The back has light scuffs only, no major marks. The sides have a couple of dimples near the shoulder and jack, nothing nasty. The front is very tidy, just some dimples near the knobs and rub wear in the elbow carve area. Overall: very good condition (8/10)

Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. All electrics tested and working properly. Frets look good, minor wear only, 8/10 for life left. Set up with fresh 45/105 Moonshiners strings.
