The Ibanez guiding philosophy for acoustics: "a modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition" extends quite naturally to their acoustic bass collection. With tone, style, and playability at incredible value, Ibanez acoustic basses, like this AEB105E acoustic-electric 5-string, are creatively inspiring tools designed to thrive in a wide variety of musical situations.

The AEB105E 5-string acoustic-electric bass guitar features a single-cutaway AEWB body style with a spruce top, mahogany back and sides for a balanced, open tone. Electronics include a Fishman Sonicore pickup and an AEQ-SP2 preamp for complete tone control, 1/4" and XLR outputs, plus an onboard tuner for quick, discreet tuning. The plastic nut and saddle were chosen for its ability to transfer string vibration naturally. The AEWB32 acoustic-electric 5-string also features Purpleheart fretboard and bridge along with chrome die-cast tuners for improved tuning stability.
