Ibanez Introduces Peter Iwers PIB3 5-String Bass
In Flames bassist Peter Iwers has teamed up with Ibanez to release a third signature bass called the PIB3. Featuring a new blood red finish, the company says the new five-string model’s secret weapon is the EQB-IIID 3-band EQ. The mid control is set up to boost at one frequency while cutting at a different frequency to optimize mid-frequency control.
The bass’s mahogany body is loaded with a pair of CAP EXF-N2 pickups, which have an arched design to set each string at equal distance to the pickup. Ibanez says this offers balanced string-to-string volume output and describes their tonal quality as punchy. Other features on the bass include a five-piece maple/rosewood neck, a rosewood fretboard with a special inlay at the 12th fret, and a mono-rail IV bridge. It comes factory tuned to D#, A#, F, C, and A#.
The Ibanez Peter Iwers Signature PIB3 is available now for $499.99.
