The Ibanez 2018 UB804 Upright Electric Bass in Mahogany Oil Burst is the perfect solution for those who want the playing feel of an upright bass, as well as the ability to amplify their instrument during gigs. From Jazz to Rockabilly, the UB804 can be used across a wide variety of genres, making it ideal for anyone and everyone.
The Ibanez UB804 features a five-piece neck-through design, which is built using maple and walnut to give it strength, as well as a responsive feel. The beauty of the maple and walnut pairing lies in their superb resonant qualities, and abilities to generate a smooth warmth that enriches the tonal palette. The neck-through construction affords a generous scale length for the strings to resonate along, maximise their full potential to develop enduring sustain for the smoothest of tones.
Paired with the neck is a luxurious jatoba fingerboard, which provides a delightful feel under the fingers. The fretless design makes the UB804 a joy to perform with, affording intricate control over the strings. White dot position inlays act as a useful navigational aid as you transition along the fingerboard, which is useful for those unaccustomed to performing with a fretless upright.
The maple body that surrounds the neck provides a suitable home for the Custom AeroSilk MR5 bridge, which anchors each string securely to ensure stability is maintained for seamless control, as well as guaranteeing intonation and sustain are optimised.
AeroSilk Piezo system
The UB804 is equipped with the Ibanez AeroSilk Pieco pickup, which translates the vibrant character of the upright beautifully. The unique sensitivity of the fretless fingerboard sounds deliciously smooth, with the most subtle nuances of your technique rendered with peerless clarity. Whether you're laying down some grooves, plucking your way enthusiastically through some rock 'n' roll, or pushing the boat out with some experimental chops, the Piezo ensures that what you hear is exactly what you play.
The AeroSilk Piezo system features an active tone control, which allows your output to be attenuated to create a more focused tonal range. Depending on what style of music that you are performing, you can tailor the output of the UB804 to suit.
