Ultra rare Ibanez Model 5902 bass guitar marked “Handcrafted by Goldentone” circa 1963 in Good Condition.
Another rarity from the granddad's collection.
Before the description I want to make clear that I am not an expert on the subject. As a kid I played in a Rock & Roll band, nothing else; it is based on that experience and in some web research that I will describe the item. Very surprised a few weeks ago I knew that, this electric bass of my grandfather's collection is a very rare instrument. So please see the photos bellow where I try to show the guitar in detail. Ask for more pictures if you want to see any other details that are not shown here. Do any question you want; I will try to answer the best I can.
Aesthetically the Ibanez 5902 Bass is based on the styling design of the Burns Bison Bass.
Its original 3 + 1 tuning key layout, predates Music Man by more than decade.
With simple electronics, two volume knobs and one tone knob, nothing else, produces a nice and warm sound.
There is few available info about this bass model but, I'm almost sure that everything in the guitar is original, except:
- the chrome volume and tone knobs;
- the original plastic nut, that was replaced by a bone nut;
- the mahogany body has been at a certain time, painted in black.
Cosmetically it is in good condition. No structural damage, No cracks.
- good shielding;
- the tone control is subtle, may need attention;
- low output from bridge pickup, very good sound from neck pickup;
Comes with its original case that is in a fair condition, with signs of use.
Since I can remember I have never seen another Ibanez 5902 "Bison" Bass like this, with either type of headstock/3 + 1 tuning key layout, or with the "Handcrafted by Goldentone" inscription.
That's why I think this is so unique. Maybe there is no other like it!
Here you have the chance to make it yours !!!
