What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Basswood body Big, warm midrange tones
Baked maple fretboard Undergoes torrefaction; great sustain, snappy tone
Bartolini BH2 pickups Tight bottom end, punchy midrange, smooth response
Luminescent side dots Dots on the side of the neck are illuminated

The EHB1005MS 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. The luminescent side dot inlays are easy to see in dark environments and the truss rod adjustment is located at the end of neck for easy access.

The Ibanez 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 sessions.

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 multi-scale design delivers even string tension and comfortable fretting, facilitating a quick, smooth playing action.

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 read more with the treble control acting as a passive tone control when the EQ is bypassed.

The MR5HS bridge is designed especially for the 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.

Alright final review time. I have had a chance to get over a hundred hours of playtime; rehearsals, practice, recording and gigging with this bass over the few months.Let’s get the bad out of the way first, I absolutely hate the locking Jack input. I’ve never broken cables before I started using this input style, since then I’ve broken nice sturdy cable on this bass as well as one my other Ibanez BTB. However, I finally learned the trick of removing the cables but it’s still non-intuitive and it works best using right angle terminals. RIP to my faithful Pig Hog cables
