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
B106 bridge (16.5mm string spacing)
Bartolini MK1 neck pu
Bartolini MK1 bridge pu
Bartolini MK1 3-band eq
So after much deliberation I've decided to go with something a bit different in my bass. So these are up for sale - Nordstrand Big Splits in Ibanez SR spacing (16.5mm), P2 shape (108mm x 32mm) so fits in the Bartolini MK1 routs. Comes with black pickup screws. Price includes postage.
Didn't think this one would be going, honestly but here we are:
A fairly rare Ibanez DWB3 is now up for grabs. I've only seen one 4 and one 5 string version of this pass through this forum which is a mystery as this is a lovely bass. If you like an Ibanez neck then you know what this has to offer, not too thin front to back but has a pleasantly slim nut that encourages you to fly all over the place, should you want to.
I had the excellent ACG EQ001 fitted by The Gallery in Camden as they certainly know their apples and there really isn't a sound this bass can't pull off!
Why am I selling then, I hear you cry? I've got too many nice basses and I've got to cull the herd a little bit. I may also come to my senses and pull this in favour of putting something else up!
Price is collected in Jersey if you fancy a daytrip to enjoy some sun and sea at the same time, postage can be arranged and the included hard case will keep her nice and safe.
Up for sale, my Ibanez BTB 1825. Excellent condition/as new.
Comes with original custom fit Ibanez Case.
35" scale bass with 19mm string spacing and a 47mm nut width.
Bought new from Thomann in Nov 2019. Dot markers added by pro luthier.
Low action, flat neck with good feel. Just not the tone for me - I bought this bass without ever playing one.
Prefer a local (London and surrounding areas) but will post within UK. UKsales only
I believe these basses are discontinued.

I'm selling this Ibanez Musician Studio Fretless Bass on behalf of a friend of mine who's had it in his recording studio for many years but now wants to move it on.
Was up for £675, but It's now offered for sale at £SOLD.
As can be seen in the photos, the bass and the case are in good condition for their age, considering they're getting on for 40 years old.
I think the bass is the lined fretless version of the Ibanez Musician ST924WN model, as can be seen here in this Reverb advert a few years ago:
But hopefully, @Bassassin might be able to offer some words of wisdom on this and put me right if I've got it wrong .. 😁
The bass has recently had a once over by a local guitar/bass tech, so all the electrics are working and it's properly set up. Strings are old though, so they will need changing by its new owner.
Having said that, this bass really has that fretless 'mwahh' sound and it's got seriously loud pick ups! There's a great range of tones available from the active circuitry too..
For anyone seriously interested, the bass can be viewed and tested by prior appointment in the Littlehampton area of West Sussex.
With regards to shipping, its definitely possible to send it via an insured courier service (at buyers expense), but it is a heavy bass as I'm sure anyone looking at this advert with a serious interest in the bass will know.
I haven't weighed it, but it is heavy!! It's kind of like a Rolls Royce of a bass really - everything about it is quality and it's been built to last!
Anyway, if you've any questions about the bass, please send me a PM and I'll go back to the owner to get you an answer, though that may take a few hours or so depending on his availability.
Thanks for looking! 😊
