Ibanez was in contact with us over many years. a mutual dream was to build a Avalon kind of instrument together, but for some reason the only result of colaboration was this AFR bass, completely designed and signed by Rolf Spuler. I build the piezo pickups for them in Brasil and sent them to Japan.
this is Rolf’s personal sample of the first serie, little used by himself, a little dent near the output.
after Rolfs death, Ibanez reissued this model, slightly modified. this is the original.
the instrument can be tested near Zürich
