Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this absolute tone beast of a bass from our pals over at Ibanez. If you're in need of a real-deal 6-string that is truly a professional-grade instrument, well here you go.

The Adam Nitti bass is designed by and for a gigging musician that needs the ability to get a wide array of versatile and extremely musical tones along. It sounds amazing, is lightweight and comfortable to play, and it's just one of those basses that gives you exactly what you need without too many frills or any of the stuff that you really won't ever use.

The Bartolini electronics sound powerful, super punchy, and they're going to get you a classic active j-bass on steroids kind of modern tone that can really be shaped and dialed in to either give support to the mix or it can really stand out and cut through. All it takes is a few simple knob twists. Along with controls that add versatility but won't get in your way, the neck is smooth to play and it's easy to fly up and down or just hang down low in first position grooving all night long. Playing a 6-string gives you plenty to think about as it is, so it's great that you don't also have to worry about playability or complicated controls here.

This really is a bass player's bass. It's got the essentials all dialed in and is ready for the studio or stage.

Manufacturer's Description

Bartolini xXM56C pickups

The xXM56C are the M5 shape soapbar pickups. The quad coil design can be split and features deep tone and the pickup is designed for extended string width of 74 to 95mm in low-curvature fingerboards. The "original series" bass pickups with passive designs. They are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.
