Built from 1979-1987, the Ibanez Musician basses were known for their use by artists ranging from Sting of The Police and Adam Clayton of U2, to John McVie of Fleetwood Mac. The MC-924DS features a full 34" scale and neck through body design, with a neck made from three pieces of maple reinforced with strips of walnut. The dark stained ash on the top and back has very prominent grain, sandwiching a core of mahogany for a very complex and rich tone. Weighing in at 10lbs, 4oz, this bass has a healthy natural sustain with thick low end that growls and punches with great articulation. The slab ebony fretboard accentuates the note attack and round, present quality of the tone.
The C shaped neck profile has quite a bit of chunk and roundness with generous shoulders and a substantial feel. The ebony fretboard sports original jumbo frets and abalone dot inlays. These frets retain their full, factory height and are virtually unplayed with no buzzing or dead spots as you move up the fretboard. The nut measures 1 5/8" in width and is a combination of bone and brass, marrying the tonal properties of the two for a bit of snap in the top end and great clarity. The headstock features a dark stained ash veneer to match the body, along with the original gold "Musician" truss rod cover and stock "Velvet Tune" chrome tuning machines that, as the name would suggest, turn very smoothly and hold pitch well.
