Ibanez Introduces First Fretless EHB Model, the EHB1005F
Ibanez has added a new model to their headless EHB basses with the EHB1005F, a five-string that marks the first fretless bass of the series. The company builds it with the same chambered American basswood body and roasted maple/walnut neck, although this one stands out from the pack.
“This bass is not only unique in its function, but it’s also one of the more unique looking EHBs,” they write. “This distinctive look comes from the combination of a blue Richlite fretboard and a brand new Arctic Ocean Matte finish.”
Other features include a pair of Bartolini BH2 pickups, a Vari-Mid 3-band EQ, and luminescent side dots.
The Ibanez EHB1005F fretless bass will be available at a street price of $1,299.
