Product Description

An acoustic bass is a distinctive instrument, with a unique sound of its own. Producing a rounded, earthy tone, these instruments are in their element when used as part of an entire acoustic ensemble. The Ibanez PNB14E-OPN puts a more portable, modern spin on the traditional acoustic bass, with its ergonomic parlor-style body shape and electro-acoustic design.

The back and sides are crafted from laminate, with a mahogany top - producing a deep and rich tone that gives notes all of the bottom-end you'll need. Despite its small body, this bass still offers great projection and resonance, able to sound punchy and defined in a live or studio mix.


This bass has a cleverly disguised pickup mounted under the bridge saddle, able to translate all of this instrument's tonal goodness through an amplifier or PA system. The onboard AEQ-2T preamp will ensure amazing clarity, giving the signal a robust push. A built-in tuner also means that you can easily check your tuning on the fly.

Good acoustic tone. The electronics work well and are easy to use, although the tuner is not especially accurate.

Lovely little acoustic bass and great value. Sounds like something far more expensive.

Love ths little bass. i'm new to bass playing, but i already had two Ibanez electro acoustic guitars, so i was familiar with the brand. always very good quality guitars, at very reasonable prices. This little bass is parlour shape, which is perfect for me, sounds lovely - with a rich tone - i purchased it so it could sit next to me and i could pick up and play any time without having to mess about with amps and leads. I admit i havent tried it through an amp yet, so i expect it will be even better then!!

Trusted Customer13th May 2020

Really quite impressed. It's very short but has a great tone. It's a little less resonant on the low E but really gets going on the A string. It sounds mellow and warm, has surprisingly good sustain, and is easy on the fingers. The particularly example we received has a really nice grain pattern on the head - sort of flamed mahogany. Very happy with that. Can't really comment on durability as we've only had it 5 mins but I can't see anything obvious that might cause issues so I'll give it 4.

Bought this to have something in the lounge - just to grab and play with no need to setup amp etc. Brilliant bit of kit.
