I found an Ibanez bass at a pawn shop for $100. It's in really good condition.

It's a BTB of some sort, five string, active, four knobs, and mono bridges.

Is this a good deal, or am i missing something?

EDIT: Two soapbar style pickups, too. Natural finish.

Upon more detailed internet searching, i'm almost positive it's a BTB555.



Athough i could have sworn it had four knobs.

So that's a value of $700 american, but for $100 canadian. Damn, I'm a lucky bitch.

EDIT: Question: I didn't test to see if the electronics on the bass worked when i was there, but i do plan to when i go back. Even if the electronics don't work, is it still a good deal? It won't cost me that much to re-wire it, right?

If the electronics didnt work and all the knobs were missing, and the strings were all ruined, and the bass cost 200-300 CDN, it would still be a good deal.

Yes it is one ****ING GOOD deal.

not just good, add teh ****ing!

Actually, I think that pic is of the newer models of BTBs.

All the older models had only 4 knobs, so don't worry.

IMO that's a ****ing great deal! Go for it man.

Behind the headstock, and you should also see a made in Korea stamp and something that says compliant with RoHS Directive.

Higher up on the back of the headstock it should say the model.

back of the headstock, most likely.

EVEN if it was a fake, it'd still be a good deal, imo.

Are they all made in Korea?


as far as i know they are. but personally i dont have a problem with koren made guitars, my SR305DX, my SZ320, and my C-1 Plus all were made in korea and they all play and sound great!

I didn't think there'd be any lack of quality, i just wanted to see that if it was made somewhere else that meant it wasn't legit.
