collapse expand iconDescription

The Ibanez EHB1005MS redefines the modern bass guitar. This innovative multi scale 5 string bass features a specially contoured American basswood body and 5-piece roasted maple/walnut neck for superior playability and balanced tone. With its headless design and slanted, chambered body, the EHB1005MS allows players to maintain an ideal playing position whether seated or standing. Ibanez is proud to offer the EHB1005MS, a bass that's as groundbreaking as it is versatile.

Multi-Scale Fretboard Provides Optimal String Tension

The EHB1005MS features a multi-scale fretboard with frets that gradually increase in size from the nut to bridge, providing balanced string tension and clear tone across all strings. The wider string spacing at the bridge also allows for more dynamic and articulate playing styles.

Bartolini Pickups Provide Powerful, Responsive Tone

The EHB1005MS is equipped with a Bartolini BH2 humbucker at the neck and bridge for powerfully nuanced tone. Combined with the 3-band active EQ, these pickups offer a wide range of tones from warm and rounded to aggressive and biting. An EQ bypass switch activates passive mode, allowing the treble control to function as a passive tone control.

Roasted Maple Neck and Fingerboard For Stability and Sustain

The roasted maple neck and fingerboard have been heat-treated to increase stability, durability and moisture resistance. The roasting process also enhances midrange tones and sustain. Stainless steel frets further improve sustain and brightness while preventing rust.

Premium Hardware Provides Rock Solid Performance

From the MR5HS bridge with adjustable string spacing to the Schaller S Lock strap pins and Neutrik locking jack, the EHB1005MS features premium components for a reliable and rock solid performance. A detachable finger ramp and padded gig bag are also included.
