Ibanez PCBE12MH Acoustic Bass

With its sapele top, back, and sides, this bass projects rich, balanced tone that's great for playing at home, on stage, or in the recording studio.
The Ibanez PCBE12MH is Grand Concert body style acoustic/electric bass with sapele top, back and sides for a warm, full tone. While the Open Pore Natural finish enhances the instrument's natural beauty, it also contributes to the sound quality. Thick, heavy finishes can impede the vibration of a guitar's body, "choking" the instruments tone and projection. The lightly applied natural Open Pore finish optimizes sound vibration and allows the bass to realize it's full sound potential. The Ibanez AEQ-2T preamp w/Onboard tuner is specifically set to tailor the frequencies of a bass and allows operation of the built-in tuner without the instrument being plugged in. The PCBE12MH also features a tortoise rosette, chrome die-cast tuners, nandu fretboard and bridge, with Ibanez Advantage bridge pins for improved tuning stability.

The models of the Ibanez Performance Series represent a strong focus on sound quality and performance at an excellent value. With over 50 years of experience to draw from, the Performance Series models will raise the bar on what can be expected from an economical, entry-level instrument.

"Absolutely wonderful instrument"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
We ordered this bass so we could use it in the pickers circle in Luckenbach, Texas and just play without carrying an amp around. It plays great, sounds great, and looks great. It sounds awesome through my Peavey TNT115 too. It even has a built in tuner. WHAT A WONDERFUL VALUE! Zzounds rocks and actually let us pay it out in 4 payments. We love you guys and tell everyone about you.
