Final Price DROP, now £260 collected. Open to working out shipping as well if required.
Another one on the chopping block that I'd like to keep but can't/shouldn't 😛
Japanese Ibanez Roadstar ii RB750 BK with custom made pickguard and backplate.
Its in great condition for a 35 year old. Bit of minor buckle rush and dings in the usual spots (top of headstock etc) but very minimal fretwear, truss rod works well and pups and bridge adjustment screws all work well with no rust. Neck front and back is in great shape too.
The pickups on this are really decent, separate adjustable pole pieces and have nice slightly aggressive growl and med to high passive output (very slightly less output than my Yammy BB424x but more than a Geddy CIJ Jazz I tried it against if anyones interested)
I've given it a decent setup for low/med action and decent intonation and its wearing a newish D'addario med nickel rounds with loads of life in em still.

Did a bit of research on this when I got it an its a bit of an oddity it would seem. So its a 21 fret neck and all the other images and old catalogue pages I can find are 24 fret, including this one thats selling at the Bass Gallery at the moment:
Know there got to be some awesome 80s Ibby aficionado on here that can shed some light on things. The one 21 neck I could find on the net was this guys review of this model:
Was a difficult one to price up with the mods and little other info so feel free to give me thoughts on value as well, especially if you think I can get more for it 😂
Collection, Coffee and Try outs in Forest Hill. S.E. London or I'm gigging regularly around the UK a fair bit so a meet up is possible.
So this popped up on my recommended on eBay. Anyone know what the fluff it's all about?! cue resident guru @AndyTravis 😁
