NBD!!! *First Bass*

So I've been thinking about getting a bass for a while and I thought I'd go with something entry level like Yamaha or an Ibby. I've played guitar for about four years and I've begun to set up my home studio for a one man band. But once I found this on my local CL I said screw it and pulled the trigger on something really nice, but for a hell of a deal. Presenting, the Ibanez ICB200!!!



It sounds just as good as it looks, and plays really smooth. And the real kicker? I only paid $235 and it came with a coffin case, the strap, and a stand! Total score.

I've found the same bass online for $350 with no case or extras. Definitely a deal. I'll upload clips when I get a chance

I saw one not far off of that price a few days ago in the UK. Unfortunately I'm broke at the moment. Christmas and all.

How do the frets look like?

Since the ICB200 are known to have bad fret wear.

Anyways HNBD!!

Very nice instrument... I saw one like this one (not this model though) and it seemed a very, very long bass... Is yours super long too??

I really like the look of that bass in tobacco sunburst, its a little too metal when its black or white.
