This is a very serious bass indeed! The long-scale neck-thru construction gives this bass a huge amount of natural sustain and tone, you can really feel it even before you plug it in. The poplar-burl top is really something to behold, the grain is awesome. Great bass for metal, prog etc, but versatile enough to clean up nicely for those suit-and-tie gigs without breaking a sweat. Ibanez are extremely consistent in their build quality and this is another example of an instrument that's been put together with an amazing amount of care and attention. This mahogany/poplar-burl wood combo and gloss finish isn't available new anymore, these used to retail for a fair bit more than the ash/walnut versions still being produced today. Includes a deluxe Ibanez hardcase that's built to fit these models, a handy addition as it'd set you back approx $200-250 new. Pick up a monster bass for a killer price.
