Panga Panga is a relative of wenge

This is beginning to sound like a sequel to The Lion King...

A couple of my students have Ibanez basses. The one has a fantastic 6 string bass that he only paid a couple of hundred for brand new.

That's amazing. They obviously offer fantastic value for money used!

Truth. You can’t go far wrong with a used Ibanez these days.

Got to agree on them being superb quality for the money.

I got this a few weeks back (brand new) for £412

Also - the Dawsons link says 19mm string spacing.

 

The other SR series Ibby's are 16.5mm. 

 

I think that's the string spacing for the 4 strings. I bet the fivers are 16.5mm.

I think it looks brill! If I get a new bass this year then it could be between this and the Sandberg Ida Nielsen.

If it’s an SR and a fiver it’ll definitely be 16.5mm spacing. The only ones I know of which break that rule are maybe a few signature SRs and the SRSC805 single cut model which is 18mm I believe.

I think they should reissue this:

I had one, it was great, except mine was a different colour, it was like the dark glow of a fire.

Would certainly get one again!

For a laugh.

I know a chap that has one of these - he's owned it since new since the 70's! Awesome.

I also spotted the Thumdercat signature 6 string in the new catalogue which suggests it may be ‘normal’ production bass now.

Uh oh. I didn't need to know that.... I really didn't need to know that...

edit: okay it is £7000 that will stop me gassing too hard for one.

I'm more excited by the guitar news. Bringing back the original 1987 style RG550 is AWESOME, and they're even doing a lefty run in the original and super rare Desert Sun Yellow finish. Having owned two original RG550's (a 1989 and 1991 model), I feel a bit of nostalgia. I shouldn't have sold my red one :$

      Hi!
      For sale is an extremely rare Ibanez 6-string P/J bass - in fact pretty much the only model I've seen with a P pickup.The electronics are also really cool - high output pickups mean that you can toggle passive/active mode without the usual drop in volume you get on most active basses - so you can swap from passive P tones to punchy active modern tones in seconds, without switching amp inputs
      Specs:
      SR6 5pc Jatoba/Bubinga neck Bubinga top/Mahogany body Rosewood fretboard w/Abalone oval inlay Medium frets Accu-cast B306 bridge Nordstrand CND P/J pickups Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ/Eq bypass switch (passive tone control on treble pot) Black matte hardware Condition is used, but only just - I got it just over a year ago, but it's not been out loads (gigs have been pretty slow recently for some reason...). A few tiny marks here and there if you look closely - the worst is probably at the edge of the end of the headstock (opposite "R in SDGR" - visible in the photos). Otherwise it's working great!
      Light (well, for a 6 string) at 4.8kg / 10.6lbs
      16.5mm string spacing at the bridge, and 44mm from the centre of the B to centre of the C at the nut. Neck width is 53mm at the nut.
      Now looking for ~£650. I might consider trades + cash for something cheaper too if it helps
      I'm based in Cambridge - collection would be ideal, but I don't mind driving a bit (~50 mile radius maybe?).
      Any questions let me know, cheers

      Low action, flat neck with  good feel. Just not the tone for me - I bought this bass without ever playing one.

      I believe these basses are discontinued.

      Now £100
       
      Up for grabs is my used but excellent condition 28 and a half inch scale Ibanez Mikro bass. I bought this to see if Osiris junior would take an interest in the bass but he's not touched it. I've had the original pots and input jack replaced for something better quality and the control cavity has been shielded to make it noise free. There's one of 2 minor marks on the body but nothing significant. It comes with a Fender guitar sized gig bag and a brand new set of Ibanez Mikro strings that I haven't got around to fitting yet. 
      Test drives are welcome and I'll throw in a cuppa too! 
      Collection is preferred from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, or I may able to post at the buyers cost.

      Now £250!
      For sale is my Ibanez SR506. This is an early example that features a push-pull pot on the volume to switch between active and passive and a push-pull pot on the mid control to select mid frequency. Other than that, it's very similar to the current day model and is an absolute beast! 
      The bass has recently been cleaned and restrung with Ernie Balls (that currently have about 5 minutes of play time on them!). There are plenty of age related marks and a slight crack near the 6th string tuning peg. This crack doesn't effect the tuning or neck at all and I've been td that it's very unlikely to effect the bass in the future (unless dropped from a small height) :). 
      I've tried to capture the various dents and marks in pictures but otherwise it plays brilliantly and the electronics all work perfectly fine. 
      Padded Fender case included. Happy to courier at buyer's risk (will ensure adequate packing). Also happy to consider trades. 
      Specs (copied from Andertons):
      5pc SR6 Jatoba/Bubinga neck
      Mahogany body
      Medium frets
      B106 bridge (16.5mm string spacing)
      Bartolini MK1 neck pu
      Bartolini MK1 bridge pu
      Bartolini MK1 3-band eq
