Ibanez make guitars that are well built, use quality materials and are great value for money. The PCBE12 makes a great first acoustic bass guitar or a dependable, good looking workhorse for live gigs with both 1/4 Inch and XLR outputs.
The mahogany back and sides, spruce top and rosewood fretboard give the PCBE12 an excellent, warm midrange tone that will easily handle whatever musical style you play.
Most guitars, even those with really nice wood grain, are coated in a layer of filler before lacquering. The PCBE12 however is what they call "open pore", you can see and feel the natural grain of the wood. While its effect on the guitars sound is debatable it certainly stands out visually.
The Ibanez PCBE12 comes with an Ibanez AEQ-2T preamp on board. With a built in tuner and Bass and Treble controls you can shape your tone just how you like it. With both 1/4in Jack and XLR outputs its ideal for live gigs. You can plug straight into the PA if you're working with a full band. If you want to get a really vintage acoustic bass tone without having to carry around a full size standup. The neck feels comfortable and you can really dig in when you need too without worrying about string buzz
