User Review

An old story :) - Reviews Ibanez MC150

Japan 1981.
Driver handle 24 cases.
Pickups Ibanez "Super 88" with push / pull (passive electronics)

With the series "Artist", the "Musician" is a good vintage Ibanez (especially low in this series) during the late 70s and early 80s.

UTILIZATION

Nice handle, very fast access to 24 cases without problem.
on the other hand, weighs heavy, shoulder fatigue in concert! But by good sustain against.
Sound: it "his" sound, cold enough after all, very neutral. Certainly microphones origins. Saw the body with other mics, it should.
I rather choose a tube amp (Carvin in my case at the time) to make the most of the transistor amp trends will still sound cool (well, it was the sound of the 80s, but still)

SOUNDS

Sound mat, too neutral for my liking for riffs, but I enjoy it solo (or without distortion) due to its fast neck, with a preference for the micro side handle, sounding jazz enough for a solid- body.

OVERALL OPINION

Purchased in 1981! 33 years old, never setting, the handle always right (counts per qques against)! So it is mostly a love story, but I still use it.
If I would do this choice? At the time, yes, because a good compromise his / versatility / price.

But mashed potatoes, she weighs! ;)
