The innovative Ibanez AEB5E acoustic-electric bass delivers punchy tones suited for any genre. Its agathis body and sides provide a warm, resonance when unplugged, while the Ibanez piezo pickup and Ibanez AEQ-202T 2-band EQ preamp with onboard tuner allow for a natural acoustic sound with the volume you need when amplified.

Agathis Body Resonates With Warmth

The Ibanez AEB5E's agathis body and sides are carefully crafted to produce a warm, resonant unplugged tone. Agathis wood provides an ideal combination of tonal depth and affordability in an acoustic bass. Its larger body size gives the low notes room to reverberate. Whether practicing in private or performing an unplugged set, the AEB5E delivers an organic acoustic bass tone.

Comfortable Neck and Fretboard

The Ibanez AEB5E features a comfortable neck and fretboard designed for fluid bass playing. Its standard 32" scale length and 1.77" nut width provide familiar spacing for most bassists. The rosewood fretboard offers smooth playability for expressive performances. Dot inlays help guide you to each note with precision. The satin finish neck offers a natural feel that won't stick to your hand.

Piezo Pickup Captures Rich Low Frequencies

The Ibanez AEB5E's piezo pickup is specially designed to capture the extended low end of an acoustic bass. It picks up the bass' deep resonance and projects a full, dynamic tone through an amplifier or PA system. The preamp's 2-band EQ provides tonal shaping to suit any style, from rock to jazz to folk. An onboard tuner allows for quick tuning adjustments on the fly.
