These bass guitars features Ash tops with a stunning black and silver finish on a Mahogany body, as well as the new “Accu-cast B505”. The Ash top offers superior tonal clarity and attack, while the Mahogany body delivers a warm and fat low end. The principal feature of the new bridge is the saddles can be adjusted for various string spacing. The bridge was developed in an effort to meet the needs of various players who enjoy different string spacing. The saddles can be easily adjusted to widen or tighten the string spacing by +/- 1.5mm. It also allows for precise intonation and delivers excellent string-to-body vibration.
The thin, sturdy, and stable Jatoba/Walnut neck offers superior playability when combined with the extended neck joint, making the upper frets easily accessible. The truss rod adjustment at the neck pocket allows you to easily fine-tune the neck without loosening the strings. The Ibanez Custom 3-band electronics and 3-way mid-frequency switch allow for precise tonal control with EQ points at 250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz. The Bartolini® BH2 dual-coil pickups, with their lower resonant frequency, provide a balanced warm response, tighter bottom end, and a fuller midrange.
The smooth fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics, are engineered to satisfy the particular needs of bassists, as well as inspire their creativity.
