80's Ibanez Roadster Bass (Sold)

Post by GrantB »

Excellent playing bass, amazing neck, frets, low action.

Relic'd! One missing knob. Strings have maybe 6 hours play time.

Case is near new. $600 + whatever shipping.

Do you mean gauge? If so, I'll need to measure.

That serial would indicate it's a February 1980 build. A=January, B=February etc. Then the year 80, then the build number (don't know if that's just that model or all basses or all guitars).

I have a Blazer Bass and a Blazer Guitar of similar vintage.

these are cool. a bud of mine has a USA P Bass and an Ernie Ball Musicman and he never touches them, preferring the Ibanez Blazer into a Sansamp pedal.
