The first thing you should ask yourself though is what do you want your bass to do? If it’s balance you’re after, allowing you to play while standing or sitting, then the Grooveline series is exactly what you should be considering. Maybe you need to make a statement while on stage. If that’s the case you’re going to need to check out the BTB Series. Blowing the doors off the traditional design, these instruments have a bold appearance, and an equally bold sound. There are even acoustic-electric options available, like the AEB5E bass and the Sunburst Exclusive, for musicians that want that warm acoustic tone. No matter the type of bass you are after, you’ll find it in this section.
For the bassist that wants to sound like their band hero, there are even signature models that are exact replicas of the pros play. Basses like the K5 Fieldy Signature 5-String Electric Bass Guitar and the GWB35 Gary Willis Signature Fretless 5-String Bass have been influenced and inspired by the musicians themselves. There’s no better way to emulate their sound than by playing the same bass they do.
With an ambition to push the bass to its limit, Ibanez has come up with some of the most original takes on this classic instrument. If you’re looking for a new way to weave through basslines and solos, all while looking like the king of the stage, there is no other brand of basses that can deliver what Ibanez can.
