Re: FS Ibanez Portamento SRF700

These are terrific basses. I would have snapped this up in a heartbeat but I ended up buying a new one after selling the 5 string version I originally had. Blahhh.....could have saved $400 :(

Re: Solid Wood Pickguard Sheets.. Where from ?

Nice :cool:

Do try David at MSGM next time. He made a terrific tort pickguard for my Yamaha, and I've seen a wooden pickguard (flamed maple from memory) on one of his 5 string builds.

Nice find from Italy though :yep
