The Atlas 5pc Wenge/Bubinga neck provides tonal clarity and superior note attack, and its slim grip shape permits superior playability.
The Mono-rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
"The US made pickups are hand made at our factory in California exclusively for Ibanez. Ibanez was the first to ask for much deeper tone from the neck pickup while retaining a bright tone for the bridge, unlike traditional designs that used approximately equal pickup tone. The pickups are dual coil designs in several soapbar shapes, some rounded top and some flat top. In all cases, the Neck pickup tone is very deep and the Bridge pickup tone is bright. This allows the widest tonal sweep from the Blend control. Enjoy the wide tonal range!" -Bill Bartolini-
Precision tonal control, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypasses activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
The Graph Tech® BLACK TUSQ XL ® nut offers ultimately lower friction to keep you in tune and gives clearer sound and sustain.
