A bass guitar which encompasses fantastic features from both a solid body electric and a hollowbody acoustic, as well as adding a 5th string to the party is exactly what you get with the Ibanez AGB-5 Artcore Vintage Bass Guitar. The AGB-5 is a semi-hollowbody model with 5 strings instead of 4 so you can extend your playing range immensely. The construction of Artcore Bass series guitars integrates both electric and acoustic tonal qualities so you get the best of both worlds.
The AGB-5 is a semi-hollow body guitar which is entirely constructed from maple tonewood which allows the bass to resonate clearly and articulately. Maple offers a bright timbre and thanks to the cutaways in the body it also means you can recreate the rich, warm acoustic tones you would find from a hollow body bass.
A short scale neck is fitted to the body which has a comfortable playing feel. The neck has a scale length of 30.3 inches and is constructed from mahogany. Tone and resonance is further improved due to the employment of this particular tonewood. Married to the neck is a bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets at your disposition decorated with white dot inlays.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The AGB-5 is the perfect choice for a live musician as it is fitted with Classic Elite Bass pickups which enable you with the power to amplify your sound at a gig. The pickups reproduce the low ends and bright highs with clarity and volume when plugged into an amp.
Honey Gold Sure Grip III control knobs do exactly as their title suggests as they have a non-slip component to allow you to adjust your Volume and Tone with precision. Just below these controls is a pickup selector switch which shifts between the neck and bridge pickups.
The AGB-5 is furnished with an Artcore Custom 5 bridge with 15mm string spacing. It is custom made from milled brass and is joined by antique chrome hardware elsewhere on the guitar for a stunning finish.
The Ibanez AGB-5 is a fantastic 5-string model which allows you to extend your playing ability, no matter whether you prefer a solid body or a hollow body, because this does a wonderful job of combining the two.
