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.
