Ibanez Musician MC940 D5
Low Japanese-made from the 70s/80s.
The body is frne, with handle 34 "scale crossing in saddle and walnut and the key is bne is a fretless 24" boxes. "Class.
The fittings are dor but mcaniques money but I did realize that rdigeant this article is that Bell has not so much. I look for pictures on the net and apparently it is original, bizarre as a choice. The bridge feels solid and it does its job.
Two microphones, a big single coil in the bridge position of the size of a soapbar, and a large paved trs which the magnets are disposs like a micro precision in the neck position.
Level was CONTRL: Volume, Balance, Tone (works in liability only), Switch Active / Passive, 3 knob to legalization (the mdium is a push / pull that changes the frquence m dium, I do not know if it is original)
Aesthetics is a bit dated, normal instrument for 30 years! I am not a fan of vintage lesthtique but I forgive him much for the quality of wood, violin (great job by the way), its ease of play and especially the sound!
I put 9 and not 10 because I'm not a fan of the vintage look.


The handle: it is a wonder. I rarely (if ever) been such a comfort of play I have several other basses, and frankly see nothing. This is the best 4 string neck on which I jou. It was an excellent Access in acute (forced through sleeve notes s'enchanent ...), all is, in short, is that of happiness.
For usability, it is a little heavy but equilibrated with a good strap to pass. Sitting it tends to drag a little but nothing too mchant.
Do you get a good sound easy? YES. Llectronique active trs effective, we do what we want in liabilities was a terrible sound. Versatile wish it was a really tight sound palette trs.
I put 10 because for me the weight is a false problem, then we saw heavier ...


The sound is the main strength of this low. But this is my personal opinion!
I play a bit of everything, jazz, funk, pop, salsa, but my variation on prdilection style is flamenco. In all cases, a ring, and not a little. It's not for nothing that this bass is a REFERENCE! The neck pickup has a deep, warm, rich and deep. The bridge pickup gives a more condensed prcis, but soft, a bit like Pastorius. I t trs surprised that the mix of the two pickups gives a fairly modern sound!
What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest? It's simple, as long as the eq not grow back, I like the sound of this bass. Especially on the bridge position, I find the magic sound.
I put 10 without hsitation.


I use only a few months and I am Fully satisfied. This is a MODEL that is rare ... I stumble upon a site, used coud'bol!
Have you tried many other models before acqurir? I have several other basses, particularly a Jazzbass Fender and Musicman Stingray, but n'tait not what I was looking for.
What is the particular feature you like best and least? Plus: The ease of playing, SOUND! The least: The vintage look ... but others may have be a plus.

Conclusion: For me it's the top of the fretless, but remains a personal opinion trs. It's best to try to get an ide!
