Ibanez has announced they will reissue the famed 2609B, also known as the Black Eagle bass. Admitting they are not apt to reissue many instruments, the company says the limited edition run marks the 40th anniversary of the classic model.
The bass has several striking features, including its distinctly sculpted mahogany body, its f-hole shaped headstock, and custom position marker inlays. Of course, the most recognizable part of the bass is the abalone eagle set in its lower horn.
Ibanez chose a pair of alnico magnetic Super J pickups to give the bass a “bright, aggressive” tone. Finally, the headstock is inlaid with a mother-of-pearl classic Ibanez logo.
The Ibanez 40th Anniversary 2609B Black Eagle Bass Reissue will be available soon with a street price around $599.
