Overview

Ibanez's AVNB1FE Artwood Vintage Parlor is a short-scale acoustic bass guitar with a parlor body. This compact instrument is ideal for situations such as playing on the couch, outdoors, as well as more informal occasions. However, this bass is also a valuable on-stage tool. Since the 25" short scale is similar in feel to a regular guitar, it is more comfortable for both guitarists and electric bassists to play than a full size acoustic bass. The shorter scale and compact parlor body also make it a more user friendly platform for beginners. Despite the compact body size, the AVNB1FE Artwood Vintage Parlor has an impressively powerful acoustic volume. The thin semi-gloss finish as well as the solid Sitka spruce top and nahogany back and sides contribute greatly to the overall tone. The neck joint being located at the 12th fret means the bridge connects at the center of the lower bout, which maximizes sonic resonance. A bone nut and saddle were chosen for their ability to naturally transfer string vibration.

Ibanez's brown violin semi-gloss finish gives the AVNB1FE Artwood Vintage Parlor Solid-Top acoustic-electric bass a more vintage feel, allowing the natural texture of the wood to be felt. The satin finish of the mahogany neck helps facilitate fast and smooth position changes. The Fishman Sonicore Pickup accurately translates the complete sound to whatever amplification system you plug it into, while the Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp provides the extra punch of onboard EQ, and the convenience of an easy-to-read digital tuner is located on the upper bout.
