1981 IBANEZ MUSICIAN BASS
80'S FERNANDES 'RICKY' BASS
Here is a great Strat from 79 in a great natural finish with lot's of grain in the timber. The pick guard is the black/white/black style with black knob's.
Pickups are the EMG type that also have a great sound, some people actually prefer these to original pickups, but whatever one's choice is this is what it has. Fretboard is maple and also has the large headstock with the 'F' style tuners. It comes with it's original case, play excellent, look's fabulous etc. Overall in EXC + CONDITION
MC 824 DS
The IBANEZ MUSICIAN BASS is one great bass. From memory the bass player for U2 used one many years back. This model is the mc824ds which has the double octave fretboard in rosewood and has dot inlays, The pickups are killer sounding in the style of the cool P90'S. There are 2 volume and a tone sector and a 3 way pickup selector as well. The finish is a see thru 'walnut' style ( my opinion ) well it look's like it to me..The neck is made up of several pieces of timber and goes all the way thru the body which can be seen in the pics. Overall another great bass that's got a killer sound and it comes with it's original olive green interior styled case, In VGC but does have some buckle wear on the back which can be seen in the pics.
These early 80's basses by Fernandez are getting very good reputations nowadays.
Ok, we know it's a copy of the 'RIC' bass of the classic design that we all know about. What 90% of the starting bass players dont realise is just how good these are. As with the Greco styled "RIC' or the 'THUNDERBIRD" styles basses these Fernandez are finally starting to gain a reputation. They play exceptionally well considering the price, so if your a young guy/girl who desires a Rickenbacker but doesn't have the budget this is the way to go. One great stepping stone. It has the redwood style sharktooth fretboard, white binding, single ply pick guard, 2 single coil pickups, and it's a full size. Overall EXC cond. but does have player wear which can be seen in the pics. Currently priced without a case. So a case will be extra.
