OVERVIEW

The classic looks of the Ibanez ARTB100 Bass Guitar are enhanced by an arched top and refined body binding. Its bound neck and headstock give it a classic streamlined look. Its clear, pronounced tone and massive low-end come from the ARTB100's metal-covered ceramic pickups. The 30" scale set neck delivers more neck-to-body resonance and heavy low tone.

Classic looks and distinctive tone.

A Great Deal

Comments about Ibanez ARTB100 Bass Guitar:

I agree with the others on value and quality. I will save you money right now by telling you that Short scale strings will NOT work on this short scale bass due to the space between the tailpiece and the bridge. It takes medium scale strings. They put a note in new about only using med gauge strings, but should also mention the med scale.

Just get it!

Comments about Ibanez ARTB100 Bass Guitar:

I do not own this, but I was messing around with it at my local music store, and I loved it!!! I tried out several fenders, and Ibanez Sound Gears, but this one beat them all. It sounds very nice, looks super sexy, and is very lightweight and comfortable. The black looked very dirty, and all fingerprints showed up, but the white looked very clean. My friend and I were playing folk rock and rock songs, and it packed a good punch against his electric guitar. Buy it. But it now. RIGHT NOW!

Sounds great & made to last

Comments about Ibanez ARTB100 Bass Guitar:

Since I've owned a 1980 Ibanez Artist guitar since new, I thought I would take a shot at an Ibanez bass. This bass is well made and substantial with great hardware. Its thick but not too heavy. The finish is perfect. Great snap in 1/4 jack that wont loosen. Ibanez makes very playable fretboards and this is no exception, however, the fret ends could be filed a little more. Ibanez tailpieces are also top notch. Pickups sound great. The only thing missing is a pickguard for those who use a pick, but no big deal.

More Short Scale Bass Guitars Needed

By 

from Florida

Comments about Ibanez ARTB100 Bass Guitar:

I've been playing 6 string guitars for 44 years. About two months ago the worship leader of our church asked me to step up and play bass for our new praise band. I accepted the challenge and found the 'borrowed' full scale bass to be uncomfortable because of my short arms and small hands. I purchased the Ibanez Mikro and could not have made a better choice. A couple of days later I saw this baby! It is and inch and a half longer than the Mikro and a much better bass. I wanted two so I could switch off and also have one in the stand at home to have handy to practice on. I got a great deal on the ARTB100 and purchased it. I love the look that this bass has and it is definitely a step up or 2 from the Mikro. Nevertheless I now have 2 nice bass guitars, as well as 2 Ibanez 6 string acoustic-electric guitars as well (AES10 and AEG10) I will not own anything but an Ibanez. Well done Ibanez!
