Been waiting to get your hands on an acoustic-electric bass? The Ibanez AEB10E is a great deal on a bass that does it all. Plugged or unplugged, the AEB10E offers outstanding tone and smooth playability with a mahogany body and a Fishman Sonicore electronic system. For bassists representing a wide range of styles, the AEB10E is a stellar way to bring the sound of an acoustic bass to your next performance, recording, or jam session.
The AEB10E starts with the tried-and-true combination of mahogany back and sides with a spruce top. Mahogany provides a robust tone through the mids and bass, while the spruce top adds a defined snap to the top end. As a bassist, much of your tonal character lives in the low mids, and the AEB10E does a great job highlighting this exact range. Finger or flatpick juicy bass lines and progressions along the comfortable mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. With a thin profile and easy action, the AEB10E just begs you to keep playing.
To capture every natural nuance and texture of the AEB10E, Ibanez has outfitted this bass with a Fishman Sonicore electronic system with an Ibanez AEQ-SST preamp. Use the onboard 1/4-inch or XLR output to easily interface this bass with any bass amp, PA system, or recording rig. A three-band EQ, phase switch, and feedback-reducing shape control allows you to craft the perfect expression of your playing at any gig or session. Also included is a tuner which doubles as a mute switch.
