Ibanez unveils a new range of headless bass guitars

Including a multi-scale model.

Ibanez has expanded its selection of headless bass guitars, introducing three new models: the EHB1005, the EHB1005MS (multi-scale) and the EHB1000.

All three of the bases come with chambered basswood bodies, as well as five-piece roasted maple/purpleheart necks, birdseye maple fretboards, 24 frets, two passive Bartolini BH2 pickups, and an MR5HS bridge.

The active 3-band EQ on board boasts something called ‘Vari-Mid III’ – which allows you to fine-tune the exact spot of the midrange boost or cut, all the way from sub-100hz territory to around 6khz, allowing for incredibly fine control of your signal. Alternatively, an EQ-bypass switch lets your signal travel to the amp unaffected by these three bands, instead only being affected by a passive tone control.


Each of the basses also come with incredibly deep cutaways, allowing full access to all 24 frets. There are some notable differences between the models: the EHB1005 is a five-string, as opposed to the four-string

The EHB1005 is available in flat black, while the EHB100 comes in pearl matte white. The EHB1005MS comes in either flat black or matte green.
