OVERVIEW

Boutique design and exceptional tone.

In the early '90s, Ibanez broke into the high-end boutique bass market with its unique concept of Affirma bass. The compact and lightweight body, designed by Swiss Luither Rolf Spuler resulted in a bass with and elegant feel enhanced by its beautiful streamline shape. It was created to meet the critical demands of musicians who require a natural sounding, sensitive instrument with wide dynamic range and effortless playability during even the longest performances.

Now Ibanez proudly revives the Affirma bass with modern upgrades. The maple body with stunning flamed maple on the top delivers a superior tonal clarity and sound attack. The neck is 3-piece of maple with 2 graphite rods inside for added stability, and jointed to half of the body. It is called “half neck-through” construction which helps to reduce sacrificing the body’s vibration and achieves enough sustain to it’s tone. The ebony fretboard on the neck provides a tight response. The neck end adjustment allows you to adjust the neck easily without loosening the strings.

The AeroSilk MR5 bridge has unique saddles which were designed to work in concert with the piezo pickups and enhance the acoustic "stand-up" quality of the sound. Also, the bridge allows for a wide intonation adjustment range, and each isolated bridge is securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.

Bartolini pickup split coil design deliver a deep and punchy tone. With its combination of the piezo and magnetic pickup, the 2-band EQ assist bassist in finding their perfect tone. Other features include special thumb rest the body. Comes hardshell case.
