The Ibanez EHB1000 headless 4-string bass guitar brings innovative design to your playing experience. With its ergonomic body shape and specially contoured back, this lightweight bass sits comfortably against your body in both seated and standing positions. The headless design also removes unnecessary weight from the headstock, creating an evenly balanced instrument. This improves your playing posture and reduces fatigue, even during long performances. The EHB1000's slim, chambered basswood body further reduces weight without sacrificing vibrant tone.

Roasted Maple and Walnut 5-Piece Neck Provides Stability and Bright Tone

The EHB1000 bass has a 5-piece roasted maple and walnut neck that delivers exceptional stability thanks to graphite reinforcement rods. The roasting process also increases moisture resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. This stability allows the neck to resist warping and twisting over time. The roasted maple adds a tight, focused sound with plenty of high-end shimmer. Combined with the walnut stripes, you get enhanced midrange tone and clear note articulation. The smooth roasted birdseye maple fingerboard also enhances sustain.

Bartolini Humbuckers Offer Versatile Tone Shaping

Bartolini BH2 humbucking pickups provide a wide range of tones perfect for various music genres and playing techniques. These pickups capture the vibrant voice of the basswood body and maple/walnut neck. Switch between the neck and bridge pickups to go from round, full lows to biting treble. The pickups preserve clarity even when playing complex chords or hammering on notes up the fingerboard. Their focused yet dynamic character lets you stand out in the mix or blend seamlessly with other instruments.

Dial in Your Sound with Bartolini Pickups and 3-Band EQ

When you want to shape your sound with precision, the EHB1000's electronics have you covered. It starts with Bartolini BH2 humbucking pickups designed to capture the vibrancy of the basswood body and roasted maple neck. From there, the 3-band EQ with sweepable midrange allows you to tweak the lows, highs and mids to perfection. An EQ bypass switch provides the option of passive operation with the treble pot functioning as a passive tone control.

Improved Playability and Convenient Features

Several features of the Ibanez EHB1000 bass improve playability and convenience. The extra body carving and slanted back allow easy access to the highest frets. Highly durable stainless steel frets add brightness and won't rust over time. Side dot inlays provide visibility on dark stages. The truss rod adjustment is conveniently located at the bass of the neck for quick tweaks during performances. Schaller strap locks and a Neutrik locking jack keep your strap and cable secure. With its ergonomic design and exceptional tone, the Ibanez EHB1000 bass brings innovation to your playing experience.
