collapse expand iconDescription

The Ibanez EHB1506MS 6-string multi-scale bass is a pioneering instrument that provides an unparalleled playing experience. It features a figured poplar burl top and African mahogany body that produce warm, resonant tones. The nine-piece panga panga and walnut neck delivers a smooth feel and ample sustain. Stainless steel frets and a panga panga fretboard enhance clarity and durability. The multi-scale design creates balanced string tension for effortless playability.

Ergonomic Body Contours for Total Comfort

The EHB1506MS's ergonomic, headless design enables a comfortable playing position whether seated or standing. Its chambered body is lightweight yet resonant. The slanted back rests closer to the player for enhanced control, and extra carving behind the lower horn provides unfettered access to higher frets.

Premium Nordstrand Pickups for Powerful Tone

The EHB1506MS features a set of Nordstrand Big Split linear humbuckers that produce a muscular yet balanced tone reminiscent of P and J basses. A 3-band active EQ with variable midrange frequency and an EQ bypass switch for passive operation supply a variety of tones for any musical style.

Adjustable Bridge for Precise Intonation

The MR5HS bridge is designed specifically for Ibanez EHB basses. Each bridge piece attaches independently to the body for maximum vibration transfer. Saddles are adjustable plus or minus 1.5 millimeters for precise intonation. Teflon tuner washers provide smooth and accurate tuning.

Additional High-Performance Features

The EHB1506MS also includes durable Schaller S-Lock strap locks, a Neutrik locking output jack and a padded gig bag. A detachable finger ramp provides playing support. This cutting-edge bass synthesizes tonewoods, ergonomics and electronics into an instrument that redefines multi-scale performance.
