Ibanez Bass Workshop EHB1265MS 5-string Bass Guitar – Natural Mocha Low Gloss

5-string Bass Guitar with Ash Body, Walnut Top, 9-piece Panga Panga/Walnut Neck, Panga Panga Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups – Natural Mocha Low Gloss

Amazing Looks and Even Better Playability

The Ibanez Bass Workshop EHB1265MS is armed with an ergonomic design and hugely versatile tone, making it a coveted instrument for any bassist. This EHB comes with an ash body and an eye-catching walnut top that work together to provide a well-balanced and resonant tonal foundation. Two Bartolini BH2 humbucking pickups deliver a classic soapbar sound without any of the hum that plagues vintage pickups. Beyond that, the EHB1265MS comes with a 3-band Vari-mid active EQ for flexible tone-shaping. Your fingers will delight at the smooth playability provided by the 9-piece panga panga/walnut neck, panga panga fingerboard, and expertly dressed stainless steel frets. Other appointments include the MR5HS bridge with adjustable string spacing, Schaller S-Locks strap lock pins, and glow-in-the-dark side dots. If you’re after a lights-out bass that shines when the lights go down onstage, look no further than the Ibanez Bass Workshop EHB1265MS.

Bartolini classic soapbars deliver the tone

Bartolini BH2 passive pickups deliver classic soapbar pickup tone on demand. Their dual-coil humbucking design bucks the annoying hum, but delivers the beefy tone. They’re amazingly responsive, too. Dig in, and they growl with the big cats. Pull back, and they’re sweet and clear. Go ahead: slap and pop — they thrive on abuse! Bartolini’s Classic Bass series pickups are popular with progressive, jazz, gospel, and metal musicians for whom articulation is critical. Ask any tone-savvy bass player, and they’ll confirm that, onstage or in the studio, your bass will sound incredible with Bartolini BH2 soapbar pickups.

MR5HS bridge fits the needs of any player

A bridge can make or break a bass. For the EHB1265MS, Ibanez chose their specially-designed MR5HS bridge. With this bridge, you have a wide intonation range at your disposal, so switching string brands and gauges is a breeze. What’s more, the MR5HS bridge enables you to customize the string spacing to fit your evolving needs as a player. The saddles come from the factory with 18-millimeter string spacing and are adjustable +/-1.5 millimeters. Each saddle also comes with its own fine-tuner and Teflon washers for smooth tuning action right out of the case.

It’s all in the details

Ibanez’s obsessive attention to detail has made the company a global guitar and bass powerhouse. The artisans in Ibanez’s Bass Workshop lavished their detail-oriented skills upon the EBH1265MS, which is one of the many reasons why players like it so much. It comes with stainless steel frets that will last through years of hard touring. The neck’s graphite reinforcement rods resist the tension of the strings, keeping the neck straight and playable through all seasons. There are also Schaller S-Locks strap lock pins and a locking output jack, so you and your bass can perform without suffering drops or accidental disconnections. And like all Ibanez basses, the EHB1265MS includes high-quality tuning machines for rock-solid tuning stability.
