Here’s a pretty good example of a1982 MC150PW. The “PW” is for pearl white, and the color was indeed a rich shade of white! I owned it for a while then decided to part with it. The pickups had been unfortunately swapped for some that were much too hot for my taste. If you can find one, the ultra-comfortable neck and body shape combined with the quality brass-plated hardware make them a great value, as they are often priced lower than the other MC’s.
Original factory condition:
Year of manufacture:
Newer sealed Ibanez tuners
Number of frets:
Musician, adjustable non-tremelo
Brass / Gold
Pickups were downgraded to Kent Armstrong "Motherbuckers" (MB-1's?)
I play bass and guitar for fun and sometimes for remuneration. My ever-expanding catalog of self-recordings can be heard on Bandcamp under "Jan Dylan Hunter".
I've owned some fine vintage Ibanez instruments: a Musician MC350NT, an MC200NT, and an MC150 and will probably trade or collect others. I also enjoy Carvin, PRS and Yamaha instruments along with the usual brands, but truthfully enjoy any make of good quality.
