Just in case anyone is interested in a weird 'n wacky!... and as mentioned in the recent 'Skinny Necks' thread... took a couple of pics... would be in trouble if i bought it after the SR600 the other week...

That's not the best piece of stringing I ever saw..

The Lost Art Of Trimming Strings!

Not quite as bad as it looks - these have reverse-geared tuners, apparently to maintain a straight line over the nut.

Yes,  but they've string E and A backwards. Ought they not to be strung such that they pass under the machine heads, thus maintaining the straight string pull?

That's how they're designed to be strung - I think it's the 29 wraps around the post compromising the string line! :lol:

Jeez. They must have MILES of string wrapped around the posts to make them look that offset. It looks so far out that I thought they were meant to be the other way around!

 

Probably the last Luthite Ibanez I'd buy. I like my EDB (605?) and aim to find an EDC 705 and 715 at some point, though.

That EDA?!

you could turn a cheeky profit on that on eBay.

Damn, if it was £200 I would’ve bought it.

Awesome! Hope you enjoy it! PLEASE re-string it properly/tidily, though! 🤣

Total steal of a bargain there, but does make me wonder. In the window for £249 (which is probably not unrealistic for a rare & decent bass with a respected brand; then knocked down to £200; and then £100. And they let it out of the shop for £85.

Makes me pretty confident that the poor sod who took it in walked out with a big fat £50 in his pocket. Good old Crack Converters.

Damn, in my local cash converters all we get is bottom of the barrel entry level stuff for £85, the better basses in there are barely any cheaper than buying new

It is possible to find out how much they paid for it, the sticker will have a 4 or 5 letter code on it somewhere, it will be 2 or 3 letters then a dot and 2 more letters, the last two letters will probably be HH, 

 

Cash converters use what is usually referred to as the Blacksmith code, to mark the price paid on each item.

B=1  L=2  A=3 and so on, so the HH is 0 pence.  

i find this useful when i find something in the shop that i don't want to pay full price for, knowing how much they paid is a great starting point for haggling.
