Ibanez AVNB1FE-BV Artwood Acoustic Fretless Bass Brown Violin

Electro Acoustic Guitar w/ Fishman Sonicore Pickup & Semi-Gloss Finish

Written by

Elliot Stent

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 AVNB1FE-BV puts a more portable, modern spin on the traditional acoustic bass, with its ergonomic parlour-style body shape and electro-acoustic design.


The body's back and sides, as well as the neck, are formed from Mahogany. This tonewood produces a deep and rich tone, giving notes all of the warm bottom-end you'll need. The Solid Sitka Spruce top will add a crisp top-end, ensuring that this bass won't get lost in a live or studio mix. Despite its small body, this bass still offers great projection and resonance, even unplugged.

The fretless fingerboard allows you to slide into notes beautifully, with virtually no limits when it comes to note choice or expression. If you're part of a jazz band, this bass would serve as the perfect portable companion for practice sessions or even professional gigs/recording sessions. 


This bass has a cleverly-disguised Fishman Sonicore pickup, able to translate all of this instrument's tonal goodness through an amplifier or PA system. The onboard AEQ-SP2 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.
