Ibanez Adds AGB260 Bass to Artcore Vibrante Line

Ibanez Artcore AGB260 Bass

Ibanez’s Artcore series of semi-hollow body instruments is getting a new bass this year called the AGB260. The short-scale bass is part of the Vibrante subset of the line and as such comes in Sea Foam Green with a pearloid pickguard. Its sapele body and laurel fretboard are also bound.

It has a Gibraltar III bass bridge with a Quik Change III tailpiece. Its pickups are a pair of Classic Elite Bass Pickups, which Ibanez says “deliver classic tone, punch, and extra output.” They are controlled with a three-way selector switch as well as volume and tone knobs.

The Ibanez AGB260 will be available soon with a street price of $549.99.
