I picked up one of these second hand in about 1983 and it's in storage in South Australia. Can't tell you much more except it's very pretty, sounds interesting as is hard to play! It's of the Musician series of that era.

I was the lucky buyer of that particular 980; I can concur that it's pretty, sounds amazing & is quite a handful. I can just about get through "achilles' last stand", which it does quite convincingly, before my hands need a rest.
I also have 924, 940 & fretless studio basses, amongst some 24 basses total.

Re: 8 string ibanez musician bass

I've finally brought my basses out of storage and tracked down a few things, like date of manufacture and model numbers. I can't get a sound out of the MC980 8-string - have to get it on the bench. The MC940 fretless is beautiful - I can hardly out it down - but the old stalwart MC924 has sheared the tuning post on the D-string. Need to find VelveTune B2 tuners - wish me luck!
