$1,999.99

Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this absolute tone beast of a bass from our pals over at Ibanez.

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 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 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.

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

Item Details

Maple fretboard
The Maple fretboard provide crisp, bright highs and strong upper midrange

Swamp Ash body
A Swamp Ash body produces sparkling highs and rich harmonics.

Extra scoop cut
The back side of the lower horn has an extra scoop, borrowed from the Ibanez SR's body shape, which enables easier access to higher fret positions without stress.

Finger Ramp
The detachable finger ramp encourages players to not "dig in too deep" and allows a more consistent attack with quick recovery time.

Bartolini® 59CBJD pickups
Bartolini® 59CBJD pickups are passive designs that feature an extended and more resonant frequency range. The pickups have far more "air" and definition at the top end without sacrificing lows and low mids. The pickups are cast in epoxy to remove any unwanted feedback and microphonics.

NTMB+F preamp
NTMB+F preamp is specially modified for Adam's taste and offers fully independent bass, mid and treble controls with very low noise and a wide boost/cut range. The sound is extremely clear and transparent. The 3-way mid frequency selector provides 250Hz, 500Hz, and 800Hz choices for more sonic variety. The passive tone trimmer equipped in the cavity enables players to fine tune the brightness.

Hipshot® A Style bridge
NTMB+F preamp is specially modified for Adam's taste and offers fully independent bass, mid and treble controls with very low noise and a wide boost/cut range. The sound is extremely clear and transparent. The 3-way mid frequency selector provides 250Hz, 500Hz, and 800Hz choices for more sonic variety.

"An ergonomic, well-balanced, and incredibly versatile instrument that speaks evenly throughout its entire range. This bass is an inspirational tool that has become a true extension of my voice. I can't put it down!" – Adam Nitti –
