    FB - 00022 1953 Fender Precision Bass     VG -   The body date on this one is 5-30-53.   Many changes and modifications. Natural refinish. Some 'contouring' done to the body perhaps for a female player. It IS more comfortable than the straight slab. The back is pretty clean. The pickup is original and the knobs and knob coverplate also seem to be original. The finger rest could be as well. Bad Ass bridge and Mighty Mite reproduction neck that feels great and shows plenty of wear on the back. Nice decal on the headstock and proper tuning pegs. This old bass feels great and sounds great too. Good quality leather-like gig bag.
    Price:   $4750.00

    IB - 0003 1973 -74 Ibanez Custom Agent Model 2405     EXC +   Alright folks this is one you don't see often and it's the perfect axe for the true vintage afficionado. This is the second one we've managed to acquire. It combines some of the greatest elements of the Gibson F-5 Mandolin (headstock) , the Gibson Style 5 Mastertone Banjo (fingerboard inlays), and the Gibson Les Paul (flame maple body and humbucking pickups) with suburst maple back. Gibson had gone down the tubes under Norlin management in the seventies and Ibanez was the leading Japanese "lawsuit recipient" making the best quality copies of Les Pauls, L-5's, ES-175's etc. But this one is the cream of the crop. It's not a copy .... it's an homage! It looks like real Pearl Inlay set into the top below the stop tailpiece but it's actually some sort of goofy plastic. But hey, I won't tell. Original tuning pegs. This is an exquisite original example of the most desireable model and it has that great dark powerful Les Paul sound. Original hard shell case.
    Price:   $2650.00    SOLD
