Made entirely from exotic spalted maple wood, the Ibanez EBW20SMFE bass guitar is a one-of-a-kind beauty. But looks aren't everything. With a Fishman Sonic pickup and SST pre-amp with onboard tuner you'll reap its bright, tonal rewards too.
The idea of a bass guitar made from wood that has begun to decay might scare you away, but never fear, the wood is sound, and the sound is clear. The unique lines and figuring along this acoustic-electric, fretless bass is the result of the spalted maple that makes up the body. In nature, a fungus attacks the spalted maple, and as it begins to decay, natural, artistic designs are formed. Before the wood becomes too brittle for use, Ibanez designers save these natural wonders, and reshape them into these beautiful guitars. The sound quality you'll get is similar to other maple bodied basses, but the look is like nothing else.

Comments about Ibanez EWB20SMFE Exotic Woods Acoustic-Electric Fretless Bass Guitar:
This is a uniquely beautiful and comfortable to play bass in my opinion. I put flat wounds on it giving it a warm, smooth tone that is so sweet. I find it a joy to play due to the slim neck and handy built in volume/tuner. The built in EQ is very basic and limited but gives some on-instrument tonal options. The pickup captures the sound genuinely and clearly. The finish makes for great eye candy on stage. It always gets attention when I pull it out.
