1991 Ibanez MC824 Musician Series Reissue Bass (Made in Japan)
The Ibanez Musician series started back in 1979 and was made famous by the likes of Sting, Adam Clayton and John Entwistle. When Ibanez Japan stopped selling these internationally in 1987, they continued building a few MC basses for the domestic market. Only released in Japan, this 1991 MC824 was designed to replicate those original MC basses, while adding some modern features.
Constructed with a sen/maple body, maple neck and 24 fret ebony fingerboard, this thing weighs just under 4.9kg's. "All Access" neck joint allows for easy use of the higher frets with a really smooth transition. These also feature that smooth satin finish that made the MC models so nice to hold.
Active Ibanez Lo-B pickups with individual volume knobs and a master tone control, these also featured a switchable 2-band EQ system (not currently working).
Good overall condition with some minor signs of basic use, no notable dings or dents. Plays great with a smooth action and straight neck as it sits.
