Ibanez EHB1506MS Bass Guitar, 6-String (with Gig Bag)

The EHB1506MS is the ultimate 6-string for feel, tone, and comfort. And with its specially designed MR6HS bridge, you'll never worry about going out of tune.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Mahogany body with poplar burl top Rich and resonant tone
Panga Panga fretboard Snappy response, mid-forward tone
Nordstrand Big Splits pickups Articulate, coil-tappable
Schaller Strap Locks Secures strap to instrument; easy on/off

The EHB1506MS features a figured Poplar Burl top on an African Mahogany body. This combination offers warm tones and rich resonance. A 9-piece Panga Panga/Walnut neck imparts strong attack with tight low-end, while the Panga Panga fretboard delivers ample 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 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 Nordstrand Big Split linear humbuckers supply a punchy, powerful, and well-balanced tone, with tonal characteristics between a P and J pickup. The Nordstrands are paired with a 3-band active EQ with a variable mid-frequency. 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 electronics package supplies a variety of different tones read more suitable for a wide range of styles.

The MR6HS 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.

This is the first headless instrument I've owned and I will buy another with no hesitation. The sound of this thing blew me away, it was completely unexpected! Clear highs and growling lows. There is something else that I can't quite describe, but it's immensely pleasing to the ears. The playability is great. It's very comfortable and fun to play. I would highly recommend this stringed beauty!
