The best of both bass worlds, for a great price.

The Ibanez AEB5E acoustic-electric bass delivers a punchy low end, whether amplified or not. As an unplugged acoustic bass, its agathis body and sides give it a warm tone.

The Ibanez piezo pickup and Ibanez AEQ-202T preamp with 2-band EQ and onboard tuner allows quick tuning and easy amplification with a natural acoustic sound.

Acoustic bass adds a tasty layer of warm, low-end resonance that makes songs come alive and arrangements sound more fleshed-out. When amplified, the Ibanez AEB5E bass guitar uses its pickup and preamp to pump the tone and offer the thump you need at whatever volume.
Case sold separately.

  • impressed!

    As reviewed by Jonathan on 1/6/2011

    I expected a really cheap sound and quality all around, but I was impressed! The neck felt great and pretty decent action straight out of the box too. Acousticly, it was more than what I expected. Good for small un-amplified rooms. I used it in an intimate session plugged and everyone was wondering how did i get such a clean tone! By the way, I love a great tone and this bass has one! The body is not as hefty as I thought it was either. Playing this acoustic has already inspired me to write more!

  • Fantastic right out of the box!

    As reviewed by ARTHUR LONG on 12/21/2011

    When I first saw this bass I thought it looks really nice but how does it sound? The real surprise was when I played my first few notes. It has rich deep tones and great playing action. It is much higher quality than I expected and it is an incredible value. I love this bass! Do yourself a favor and check it out!

  • A couple of hints

    As reviewed by RICHARD MILEWSKI on 1/2/2012

    Several people have complained that the tuner does not work unless the bass is plugged in. I have found that simply plugging in a 1/4" jack will activate the tuner. It's easy enough to carry one in your pocket to use when playing unplugged. Secondly, if you have a feedback problem I suggest a sounhole cover. My favorite is the rubber "feedback buster". It's cheap, it fits, and it works!
