  • 5pc Jatoba/Walnut neck: The 5pc Jatoba/Walnut neck provides tonal clarity and superior attack.
  • Rosewood fretboard: Rosewood fretboard provides a well-balanced solid tone with a focused mid range.
  • Medium frets: Medium sized frets enhance the accuracy of your notes.
  • Okoume body: The Okoume body provides a bright and solid sound.
  • Bartolini® BH2 pickups: The Bartolini® BH2 pickups provide a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.
  • Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ: The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is our latest refinement on the concept of simple, straightforward, no-nonsense EQ control. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centered on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.
  • Accu-cast B500 series bridge: The Accu-cast B500 bridge has adjustable saddles for variable string spacing by +/- 1.5mm, answering every bassist’s specific string spacing needs.
  • EQ bypass switch (passive tone control on treble pot): The EQ bypass control offers precision tonal adjustments, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
  • 3-way Mid frequency switch: The 3-way Mid frequency switch allow players to change the mid-tone between 250, 450, and 700 Hz.
