I have 2 more basses coming from Johnny Mørch in around april, a Musicman Stingray special in jet black, it should be here around october ( looong time ). And just ordered a costum ocon bass from Jens Ritter. I will post pics as they come, if anyone should be interested.

I bought this rather nice 1981 RS840BK back in September last year. It was in a bit of a sorry state and needed a lot of work on the body and a refinish to make it presentable. The electrics were also bizarre so the whole thing was rewired with correct Japanese pots. The original knobs and truss rod cover were missing and these have been replaced with reproduction parts from the USA. After the refinish the body was then given an 'aged' look to match in with the neck which was in very good nick. All in all I am very happy with the way the bass has turned out. If anyone has an original case that they are willing to sell I would be interested.

Be interested on your thoughts @Kev once the preamp is fixed. Been pondering an Ibanez 6 and the SRMS would be high on the list!

Love that Steamer Stage 1 6 string - can't believe it's a broadneck too! I have a 90 Streamer Stage I 5 string with broadneck and Barts and it's a beast! The neck is so comfy and the spacing is perfect but can't get my head round 6 strings at that spacing!!

I'm guessing yours is mid-90s? Barts or EMG?

An updated shot of my SRMS805, now fitted with US Bartolini pickups and preamp, great expense but great reward!

My RB800. Refinished, truss rod and fretboard changed, custom Wal-like eight coil pickups. All done at my shop. Next is filter based preamp. 

Nice player and great sound.

I drunkenly bought this 89 SR1000E “as is” on ebay. The seller mentioned a stuck truss rod and dead preamp. Shipping was free, though, which was nice as the seller is in Japan.

It’s a nice counterpart for my 89 SR800LE but it’s going to need a lot of work and a rather thorough clean. I do love old SRs though.

Cool! I kinda miss my lefty 1987 SR800LE, it was the easiest playing bass I have ever laid hands on. Didn't get along with the tone and the onboard EQ, but I loved playing it.

I know what you mean. I find subtractive eq’ing to work best on the 800. It’s not overloaded with mids, that’s for sure. There’s a bit of work to get through before I get to hear the 1000. It’s a very different animal, both woods and electronics are quite disparate. I’m expecting that to translate to what cones out of the speakers. They’re such a comfortable design though. I started playing in 1989, it’s incredible to think of them being cutting edge then and how the world of bass looked 30 years before that.

Here's my sparkly TMB310. Modded the pups slightly. I can't sing this girl's praises enough. I paid £200 for it and it gives my more expensive basses a good run for their money. Versatility, balance, tonal options and that finish. Its possibly my most complimented bass, never my playing though 😂

Hi,

Heres is my lovely brown burst SRMS805. It was my first five string and my first Ibanez. The neck feels absolutely fantastic, although possibly the string spacing is a little tight for slap with my big mitts.

I've got some Nordstrand Zen Blades on order to replace the Bartollini BH2s, which I think sound a little too dark for my tastes.

Lovely basses!

Regards Alex

I've always loved my Nordy big singles on my Ibbys - do please let us know how you get on with the Zen Blades.

Will do.. they're taking ages to get to best brass gear as they are the 6 string sized Zen Blades and I'm waiting for Nordstrand to make them. Then I've got to decide whether to wire them single or parallel... Will be a fun experiment.
