What's special about this item?
Feature: What it does:
3-band EQ Control bass, midrange and treble individually
Bartolini BH2 pickups Tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, smooth respons
Luminescent side dots Dots on the side of the neck are illuminated
Stainless steel frets Increased strength and material integrity
The EHB1000 series features an American Basswood body and the 5-piece roasted Maple/Walnut neck for well-balanced tone and clear attack. The Roasted Maple in the neck is heat-treated to increase stability, durability, moisture resistance, and tolerance of temperature changes. The roasted maple fretboard is also heat-treated for a balanced attack and rich sustain. Highly durable stainless steel frets accentuate tonal brightness and will not rust. Luminescent side dot inlays provide clear visibility in dark environments and the truss rod adjustment is located at the end of neck for easy access.

The EHB's headless construction and specially designed body enable the player to maintain a similar playing position whether seated or standing. Its contoured, ergonomic design and chambered body make for a lightweight, well-balanced, and comfortable instrument that's excellent for long sets or practice session. There is extra carving on the back of the body behind the lower horn for easier upper fret access. Also, the top half of the back of the body is slanted which allows the bass to rest slight closer to the player's body for better control and a more ergonomic feel.

The electronics consist of Bartolini BH2 humbuckers and a 3-band active EQ with a variable mid-frequency for wide-reaching tonal flexibility. There is also an EQ bypass switch for passive operation with the treble control acting as a passive tone control when the EQ is bypassed.

The MR5HS bridge is designed especially for the read more EHB basses and features wide intonation range. Each bridge piece is independently and securely attached to the body for maximum vibration transfer, and the saddles are adjustable for string spacing +/-1.5mm. Teflon washers are used on each tuner for a smooth tuning action.

Schaller S-Lock strap lock pins and a Neutrik locking jack hold the strap and cable securely, and a detachable finger ramp and a gig bag are included with each instrument.

"Very cool. Well-built. Fun to play."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Feels and sounds great. Immaculate neck. Flexible electronics. One tiny issue: the tone pot is a bit scratchy in passive mode. Ibanez customer service sent me a new module. Same thing. But most of the time I'm in active mode, and unlikely to adjust the tone knob mid-play in passive mode. So it's ultimately a non-factor for me. Other than that, I can't find a flaw. It balances perfectly standing up even with a cheap, basic strap. And I find tuning at the bridge instead of a headstock a lot more efficient. It would've been *perfect* if they designed the nut so you can lock the strings from on top. But even with having to turn it over, it's still faster than bending and winding strings around pegs. I'm a headless convert.
