  1. https://www.gumtree.com/p/guitar-instrument/ibanez-short-scale-bass-guitar-/1414133374 Funky 70s ibanez short scale for sale here thought this group might likee. A few OG bits missing but likely lots of mojo.
  2. I had the 1506MS and sold it. I partially regret it just because it was so nice to play but I only play 5s now. Still want one of these in MS. GLWTS
  3. The serial is super confusing 6P02004 as it puts it as an 86 bass using that coding but TRB basses didn't come out until 89/90 and even then they were in P/J format for a number of years. I thought basses with this pickup configuration and colourway (charcoal grey) didn't come out until 1995. Could this potentially be a 1996 August TRB5? Regardless of dating, as you stated was actually the first Japanese TRB5 (mk1) with slapcut announced in 95/96 and wonderful basses. I still regret selling my TRB6 from the same years (had relatively the same case too) Excellent value for an excellent 5 string. GLWTS
  4. I've been here ready to go for months or so after making the same decision but no one is buying my SRH505 or GWB1!
  5. I know you're likely thinking 4 string but just a heads up I needed some routing done to fit some Aguilars on the 5 string. Along with custom plate to make it a bit neater too.
  6. I got mine for my 14th birthday from Chappells of bond street in Milton Keynes. I couldn't play and never played before. I saw the Encore E83b ltd edition amoungst all the other basses and just loved the look of it and asked the salesman to play it for me. A few minutes of Mark King style slap later I asked my mum and dad for it. Plus a small Marshall amp. Joined my first band at 17 (when I had hair) and proceeded to put a Jamiroquai picture and paw prints on (the band was called The Fat Cat Experience and I was very into Zender back then). I gave it to my niece in my 20s when I got my TRB6. Many years later near the start of the Pandemic I asked and it turns out they still had it in storage so gave it back. 20ish years later. Still one of the nicest P style necks I've played and now I can teach my children on it. Now just debate to leave all original or upgrade electronics?
  7. I'm not sure which major suppliers but I know in the past a few people said they were interested but couldn't find one. I know GAK, PMT, Andertons and others were out...seems Andertons aren't now, so buy them there then.
  8. Virtually everywhere out of stock of these, but if you're in the market for one of these cracking inexpensive basses, here is a TMB35: https://reverb.com/uk/item/40699878-ibanez-tmb35-mgr-5-string-talman-bass-mint-green
  9. If I weren't in the position of needing to be selling rather than buying I'd have had it by now. Lovely bass.
  10. Trades considered. 5 string ideally, potentially fender style 4 string p or j
  11. I should also say, trades now considered - particularly 5 string fretted!
  12. Reduced to £110 plus postage
  13. One of these available on Facebook currently: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/204916064507845/?ref=search&referral_code=marketplace_search&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Aef90d404-a043-4a7f-b9b6-4a05865f7832
