A well-balanced 6-string that lets you focus on playing comfortably, whether it's sitting or standing.
Over the course of three years, dozens of prototypes, and hundreds of drawings, Ibanez never swayed from their first objective: For bass and player to share a center of balance. Standing up or sitting down, the first thing you'll notice is that the Grooveline G106 6-String does not require the support of your hands. Meaning you can use them for other things-like playing bass. A premium, boutique level instrument right down to its Sonic Arch pickups and 5-piece Wenge/Bubinga neck, the Grooveline may be the most responsive, comfortable bass you've ever played.
Grooveline's bolt-on design maximizes contact surface area. The CAP Sonic Arch neck and bridge pickups. Single-sized humbuckers with blade polepieces; well balanced traditional tone for any music and any style. The specialized 3-band EQ maximizes the characteristics of Sonic Arch pickups. A bypass switch is included so that players can also use a passive sound. The Tight-End bridge integrates every aspect of the bridge design in rigidness and accuracy. Also, the top side of the bridge is smooth finished, so if you play hard, the Tight-End bridge will forgive you and your hands. Whether you're sitting or standing, this body is designed to maintain balance however you like to play. In addition, super lightweight machine heads from Gotoh allow for comfortable performance without any drooping from the head.
