Overview

Its a rare instance when the bass builders at Ibanez re-visit the companys history. But even for the very forward-thinking Ibanez design team, the 40th anniversary of the legendary Black Eagle bass was too important a milestone to ignore. Heres a limited edition re-issue that opens the door to an alternate universe circa 1975.

The first head-turner is the mahogany body with its sharp inward-turned cutaways, along with its gracefully shaped F-hole headstock, which sets the stage for this Black Eagle re-issue to brim with 70s-era cool. Its Maple fretboard boasts an intricate custom inlay, but the decorative pi┬Ęce de rsistance is most certainly the white-on-black Abolone eagle that lives near the lower horn.

Alnico magnetic Super J pickups imbue the Black Eagle with bright aggressive tonal powers. The Mother-Of-Pearl anointed headstock bears the original, classic Ibanez logo.

    Comments about Ibanez Black Eagle Electric Bass Guitar:

    I'm 62 and still playing. I've had all the basses you can think of including the original version of this bass. This just feels good in my hands, and sounds great. Neck feels like a 64 Jazz. I will use this as my main bass. Looks good too.

      Comments about Ibanez Black Eagle Electric Bass Guitar:

      If you want a very cool jazz bass with a little extra spunk, this is your axe ! Needed a good setup out of the box but a very well made instrument. My only dislike is that the bridge( easily upgraded ) is not that great. Give it a shot and get your jam on !

        Comments about Ibanez Black Eagle Electric Bass Guitar:

        I first saw this bass 20+ years ago being played by Krist Novoselic of Nirvana. I wanted one of my own, solely on the grounds that it looked awesome. It wasn't until many years later that I even knew what it was, and as I looked for one, I couldn't find one without a broken headstock that I was willing to pony up the money for. Lucky me, Ibanez reissued this model. I love it. Aesthetics aside, it feels great, plays great, and sounds great. Quality on par with an American made jazz bass.

            Comments about Ibanez Black Eagle Electric Bass Guitar:

            About 15 years ago I spent tireless hours looking for a 70s original black eagle bass, to no avail at the time. Now there are a few places you can get them, but they are incredibly pricey. Needless to say, when I found out that Ibanez had somehow re-released this thing I had to jump on it. It plays great, sounded good amplified, and was everything I had hoped and dreamed it was. If you're looking for a more a comparable alternative to a mid level fender jazz bass I recommend this all day long.

            Not much to say. Everything from ordering, to shipping, to the product I received has been perfect.
