Value-packed 5-string Fretless Bass from Ibanez
If you’re a bass player looking for an excellent 5-string fretless bass that doesn’t cost a fortune, Total Music Source has your axe. The Ibanez Bass Workshop EHB1005SF features a sleekly modern ergonomic American basswood body, a super-fast graphite-reinforced 5-piece roasted maple/walnut neck, and a smooth-as-glass ebony fretless fingerboard. And to drive the tone home, the EHB1005SF is spec’d out with a pair of premium Bartolini BH2 pickups. Ibanez has really pulled it all together in this cutting-edge headless design — and for a price that will amaze you (in a good way)!
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.
Mono-rail bridge enhances definition and sustain
Ibanez specified their excellent Mono-rail 5 bridge for the Premium EHB1005SFSF. Unlike single-body bridges, each Mono-rail saddle is completely separate from the others. This does two things for you. First, since they aren’t connected, the saddles create minimal sympathetic vibration. This prevents unused strings from ringing. Second, each saddle is double-anchored, allowing energy to transfer efficiently between the string and the body. As a result, bassists are raving about the EHB1005SF’s astonishing clarity and sustain.
Ibanez: a brief history
Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn’t get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the “Ibanez Salvador” name, which was later shortened to Ibanez. Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative instruments and had begun manufacturing the innovative original guitar and bass designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effect pedals, most notably the Tube Screamer.
