Innovative, modern instrument with a classic shape.
The PNB14E Parlor acoustic-electric bass guitar is a short scale acoustic bass guitar that utilizes a parlor body shape. This compact instrument is ideal for situations such as playing on the couch, outdoors, as well as more informal occasions. However, the PBN14E Parlor acoustic-electric bass is also a valuable onstage tool. Since the 24.7" short scale is similar in feel to a regular guitar, it is more comfortable for both guitarists and electric bassists to play than a full-size acoustic bass. The shorter scale and compact parlor body also make it a more user-friendly platform for beginners.
Despite the compact body size, the PNB14E Parlor bass guitar has an impressively powerful acoustic volume. The "open pore" finish, as well as the African mahogany top, back and sides, contribute greatly to the overall tone. The neck joint being located at the 12th fret means the bridge connects at the center of the lower bout, which maximizes sonic resonance.
The "open pore" finish creates a more vintage feel, allowing the natural texture of the wood to be felt. The satin finish of the mahogany neck helps facilitate fast and smooth position changes. The Ibanez Under Saddle Pickup accurately reproduces the acoustic nature of the bass, while the Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp provides the extra punch of onboard EQ, and the convenience of an easy-to-read digital tuner located on the upper bout.
