Listing Detail Tabs

The Ibanez Roadster was produced by Ibanez from 1979 – 1981. Ibanez had had the lawsuit slapped on them that stopped them producing direct copies of Fenders and Gibson, and necessity being the mother of invention; Ibanez started to invent! Ibanez started producing some very original guitars and for many this period is considered a golden age. The Roadster was one of the early forays into invention rather than just imitation
.Roadster Series Basses are no less an improvement over similar designs than their six-stringed brothers. A new pickup design, new bridge and tailpiece, advanced electronics and an amazing new neck construction technique put the Roadster basses in a class by themselves. Here’s a bass you just can’t afford not trying.
The neck of each Roadster bass reveals an amazing bit of guitarmaking technology. Most basses have dead notes and resonant notes, making the sound unbalanced and downright frustrating at times. Each Roadster bass neck is individually tuned to eliminate this phenomenon. Each neck is analyzed the frequency response is leveled by embedding tuned steel rods in the neck under the fingerboard. The result is incredible. Every note on the neck rings out true and clear with no false tones or dead spots.
Roadster basses get their distinctive sound from the Ibanez Super 4 bass pickup. This wide response single coil pickup has plenty of punch and depth, with an amazingly clear and clean top end.
