Bought this on a whim from eBay as I really fancied trying one. Lovely bass, made in Japan I believe somewhere between late ‘80s - early ‘90s. I believe there is a way to check with the serial number, alas I haven’t been able to find it. These retailed for quite a bit IIRC when new, the 2nd hand prices really don’t reflect the quality of these. Really well built instruments.
This is a 5 string SB310 range, it has a brass nut with quality Gotoh tuners, all original. In great condition other than a small mark at the back of the headstock (shown in pics). Other than this it’s in great condition, especially for its age. I haven’t done anything to it except play it since I bought it so could probably do with a fresh set of strings of your preference and a set up. Comes with used but perfectly usable hard case.
Reason for sale is that it’s just not getting played, don’t think the Mrs is very happy with it being bought and just sat there! Don’t want to make anything on this of course, I bought it for £250 including postage but happy to take £225 posted. EDIT: now £215 posted.
Any questions, please ask via PM.

My first post, so hello everyone!
My Ibanez Mikro (PJ style) bass has developed a fault in which it buzzes when I am NOT touching the strings. Also, the J pickup has become microphonic. It sounds like I am tapping a live microphone especially when playing the A note, and tapping it with my hands. I don't know if these 2 faults are linked, I am guessing its an earthing issue.
I have attached some videos to try and show the issues.
Any help would be appreciated! :)
