Dates of manufacture:
Although the Ibanez AXB 50 is a headless bass the neck extends just enough beyond the nut to give the familiar feel. It has a 24 fret rosewood fingerboard, maple neck with a glossy finish to match the body.The electronics feature two humbucking pickups with a balance control to blend them to create your own sound.
This exciting new addition to the Axstar line is designed with the modern bassist in mind. Striking visually and exceptionally playable, the AXB50 base is truly an instrument built for the demands of today’s music. Careful craftsmanship and close tolerance machining combine in an instrument of outstanding value.
PICKUPS: Specially developed hum-cancelling design with black molded cover. Bar magnet construction insures balanced string to string response, designed to deliver an even, full tone at any volume level.
BRIDGE: Precision machined tuning knobs smoothly raise or lower pitch without slipping or binding. Tailpiece mass has been carefully calculated for maximum sustain and elimination of resonant and dead notes. The mounting angle of the bridge provides even string tension for consistent right hand response.
BODY AND NECK: Three ply maple neck with rosewood fingerboard balances comfortably with the lightweight basswood body to make the AXB50 a pleasure to play, even for extended periods.
Features: basswood body, rosewood finger board, headless type bridge, black hardware, two humbucking pickups, one volume control, one tone control, one balancer control. Finish options black and metallic red.
