New Birthday Bass Day! Ibanez BTB1006e.
This bass was owned by W.L. Gore for Elixir string testing, and was taken care of pretty much perfectly. It could be new out of the box except for very minor cosmetic imperfections.
Been eyeing this for about a month, and walked out of the store for $500 including the case and a new set of Elixirs. I've never owned a bass before, and I would have been happy with a 5-string, but I couldn't pass that kind of deal up.
The pickups are pretty wicked, BTB (by the by... see what I did there?) Two Bartolini soapbars with 3-band EQ, blend knob and volume, with a 3-way selector for mid frequency adjustment.
Nice lookin ass, er, bass, sir!
I think Ibby makes an oddball half-fretless version of that, where the low 4 strings are fretted, and the top two aren't. Neat stuff.
Either way, that is 'ze sex. I have a couple of AFX bass patches if you want 'em.
