I think I've seen this model Identified somewhere...but now I can't recall where (or what web site).

Anyone remember the model number and years this thing was made?

Odd Ibanez bass with strange pointy headstock

Hello Mark!
Go to and find our new updated site! Go to the 1970 section, click on "guitars", scroll the page until you find a double portrait of the guitar 2020 and the bass 2030. Look familiar? The headstock is different, but I guess the bass pictured here above is a few years older and has probably been build in 1968 or 1969. I think that mainly because of the metal Ibanez logo that's on the headstock. Is this bass yours? If yes: congrats!
Greetz, Harry

Thanks Harry!
Your site has been a great help once again, keep up the good work. You're right, except for the funky headstock, it looks the same as the 2030 bass. I don't own it, the guy who does wrote me asking what model it is. He lives in South Africa...

Thanks Mark and Harry for your time. I checked the portrait. Let me know if anyone has anything else to add.
