Sounds great and looks fantastic.
Made entirely from exotic spalted maple wood, the Ibanez EBW20SMFE bass guitar is a one-of-a-kind beauty. But looks aren't everything. With a Fishman Sonic pickup and SST pre-amp with onboard tuner you'll reap its bright, tonal rewards too.
The idea of a bass guitar made from wood that has begun to decay might scare you away, but never fear, the wood is sound, and the sound is clear. The unique lines and figuring along this acoustic-electric, fretless bass is the result of the spalted maple that makes up the body. In nature, a fungus attacks the spalted maple, and as it begins to decay, natural, artistic designs are formed. Before the wood becomes too brittle for use, Ibanez designers save these natural wonders, and reshape them into these beautiful guitars. The sound quality you'll get is similar to other maple bodied basses, but the look is like nothing else.

Been playing over 30 years and have been playing fretless bass for a little over 25 of those!I love the play-ability of this axe, and the great tonal quality - accompanied by Ibanex/Fishman pick-up/preamp.Unlike many fretless acoustics I have tried out, this beauty's intonation all the way up the fingerboard is absolutely on the dollar!!!Why spend more and get a fretless acoustic that goes out of tune on the lines before you get to the octave marker!!?? The inbuilt tuner proves the attention to accurate pitch and I can honestly say, hand on heart, that you do not need to look anywhere else for a fretless acoustic bass guitar! I got sounds of an upright, Jaco and Jamerson out of this bass!!!!!(Ampeg SVT Valve Amp & Phil Jones Bass Briefcase)Oh! Forgot to mention - the beauty of the spalted maple - each and avery axe is UNIQUE!!!!Get one - I own one - and love it!!!!
