If I had 3 grand to blow on a bass and didn't have multiple custom guitars on the way...I would be all over that!
Is that street or MSRP?
Street. It's a dealer ( Ikebe Gakki ) price.
This is me laughing about those that expected this thing to be remotely affordable.
A Dingwall ABZ5 is cheaper, still.
Not everyone has a Dingwall dealer/distributor in their country.
For 3 grand I can get an Afterburner 1 with wenge fretboard and neck with the passive setup and maybe more
I don't, and it hasn't stopped me from getting two, soon to be three Dingwalls.
Would rather have an Oni for that price TBH.
I'm happy for you, but I'm not in a hurry to drop Dingwall cash on something I can't try first.
Let's hope they'll introduce it into the Ibanez Bass Workshop line. I'm looking for a main 5-string SR type bass, and this would be just perfect.
Uhhh this is the workshop line.
He probably means the Indo workshop line, so we can actually afford it .
Every Workshop bass prior to this one has been Indonesian, so it hopefully isn't impossible that they'll release an Indo version of this one, too.
wouldn't we all, but I'm reasonably certain an Oni will set you back nearly twice that.
So... look what I've found:
Basses - SRFF4505 | Ibanez guitars
Ugh. I think I want one. Dammit.
Luckily for me, it probably won't come to Korea, or if it does, the markup will help convince me not to buy it.
At $3750 MSRP (obviously a bit less street), that's going to be going directly against Dingwall.
I'm not an Ibanez fan. Really don't dig them at all. But if they do pop off a fanned fret production model first before any other "big" companies/brands...I think I might snag one.
You do know dingwalls are 34/37" on a 5 string right?
At this price point and specs I have zero interest I honestly wouldn't pay more than $600 for that bass under any circumstances
