All SR Prestige models are Made in Japan by the finest Ibanez craftsmen and from top of the line components."

A comment from an owner on the web, "I've had this bass for about 5 years, and played about 200+ gigs with it. This was the top of the line "Prestige" model. I recently purchased a new MM Sterling. The Sterling can't touch the focused bass that the Ibanez has. It's also got the mono-rail bridge with the D-tuner on the E string, which comes in handy sometimes...If I could buy one of these brand new right now(which you can't) I would jump at the chance. A boutique looking bass with a super-fast Ibanez neck."
And another owner's comment, "The SR5000MM is crafted as good as any, and better than many, boutique basses I have own."
This instrument plays beautifully and sounds great with a lot of tone versatility from the pickup/electronics combination. It does have some minor scratches & indents, in other words, normal playwear but it still looks great. Included is the Wolfpack case pictured in great condition, which sells new for $99.00. Thanks for looking and good luck!
