Panga panga fretboard with premium fret edge treatment
Panga panga features a beautiful wood grain and produces a tight low and midrange along with a sharp attack on the high end. The premium fret edge treatment offers super smooth, comfortable performance.
7-piece panga panga / purpleheart neck with graphite reinforcement rods
The 7-piece panga panga / purpleheart neck provides tonal clarity and superior note attack, while its slim grip shape permits superior playability. Graphite reinforcement rods provide massive sustain and excellent stability.
3-band EQ with EQ bypass switch and mid frequency switch
This 3-band EQ from Ibanez Custom Electronics is their 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. There's also 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.
Aguilar DCB pickups
Aguilar DCB pickups use a dual ceramic bar design to capture all the detail and character of your tone. The pickups' uniform magnetic field ensures that no information is lost, making these great pickups for dynamic playing styles.
The MR5S bridge has adjustable saddles for variable string spacing by ±1.5mm, addressing every bassist's specific string spacing needs.
