BASS GUITARS!

Hey guys,
Hope all is well.

I need to know if there is anyone out there that knows much about Ibanez Explorer Bass Guitar PLEASE..
I think it is the x series.

It is 1985 with the case. Black colored. Very cool-

Thank you so much and please let me know!

Re: BASS GUITARS!

I do not understand your reply here at all.

Is this a good bass and where would I go? I don't want to buy a music man sub whatever that is-
Is the Ibanez explorer bass 1985 Japanese bass a good one?

Re: BASS GUITARS!

Im just joking mate. I dont know the bass at all. I play a Music Man sub 5 string bass. It is a monster, with a great sound.

Im sure some one on here will be able to help you.

Re: BASS GUITARS!

Re: BASS GUITARS!

How many frets does it have? What style of music do you play? Are the pickups active or passive? Do you care more about the sound or the look? How much is it? Are you willing to put more money into it to upgrade pickups and electronics? Lots of things to consider here, but I will say this, I think the Ibanez Destroyer bass (I bet that is what it says on the headstalk) is really bitchen'. By the way, this section is for Jems and Universes only (not to be a jerk but thats probably why you haven't recived many responces. Check out Ibanez collectors world (do a google search) they could probably help you out more.

Re: BASS GUITARS!

Ok, I know were breaking the rules here but after looking at that brochure I can tell you I had those pick ups in two basses and they SUCK! Swapping pick ups is no big deal though. ICW has a forum just fo bass, click discussion board and scroll down to bass. That ax is very butt rock, hair band, power ballad. If thats what your into, go for it!
