When it comes to bass design at the Ibanez Bass Workshop the gloves are off and nothing is too extreme or far out. This has lead to some exceptional instruments with truly unique designs. There's plenty of practical common sense going on with this 5 string bass as well, the cutaway allows technical players access to every inch of the fretboard.
Upper HornThis extended Upper Horn creates constant contact with the Maple/Bubinga neck from the 12th to the 24th fret, providing maximum stability and increased sustain.
Contoured Neck ScoopThe back of the neck is sculpted for comfort and easy access to the very highest notes. The smooth, graceful contour allows the palm of the left hand to move quickly and easily as it transitions up the neck, into the underside of the bass's Ash body.
5pc BTB Maple/Bubinga 35" Scale Thru-NeckThe Maple/Bubinga combination creates one of the strongest Thru-Necks available. The density of the Bubinga, combined with the strength of the Maple, increases stability and sustain through the entire body of the bass. The 35" scale provides a bit more tension for the low B and improves definition in the lower range.
Mono-Rail II bridgeThe Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, allowing each string to vibrate optimally without being affected by the others.
Bartolini® BH1 PickupsBalancing clarity with warmth is the hallmark of the Bartolini® BH1 pickup. Coils with lower resonant frequency provide tighter bottom end and a fuller midrange. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.
EBQ-IIIS 3-Band EQ With Mid Frequency SwitchThe active 3-band EQ features fully independent bass, treble and mid controls with a wide boost/cut range. The preamp system is equipped with a mid-frequency select switch, enabling you to instantly select 250Hz or 600Hz, the heart of the mid zone, for a more dynamic and ideal tone.
