I have this bass. It is, it appears, a '94 SR1200 neckthrough and it is fretless. I can't find it in the catalog. Is it a modification? How much is it worth? I have a chance to trade it for a G&L L-2000 Tribute. IS this a good deal? I can play the fretless okay, I guess, but I'm really just learning. Should I learn on a fretted bass and then try the fretless, or buck up and learn on the fretless? Also, which Ibanez hardshell case would fit this? Sorry so many questions in one post.

Bassstudent~ I believe it was called the SR1200FRT model designation and was a derivative of the fretted SR1200 four string. Ibanez had a variety of SR models from a low priced bolt-on up to and including a higher priced Prestige neck through 4-5 string models.
Try running a Google search on 'Ibanez SR1200' and you should get some hits. I like to use 'Metacrawler.com' since it combines multiple search engines and gets more information on obscure data.
If you can give us the serial number and maybe a photo, maybe one of the guys here can offer more help.

Serial number C441598 It is made by Cort, in Korea, in 1994. It matches the color and appearance of the neck through in the catalog. I just cant find a fretless model anywhere. Should I call Ibanez?
