The Ibanez AGBV205A brings together all the easy playing qualities of an Ibanez 5 string bass with added warmth and tonal density from its semi hollowbody shape. The short scale neck makes it easy to pick up and play whilst the 21.5mm thickness at the first fret allows an easy reach. The AGBV205s two pickups transfer a large sound with a wealth of overtones and the Maple top back and sides are sure to deliver an outstanding sound at a great price.
The Maple construction of the body makes the AGBV205A a bass full of bright clear sound with an array of tones. The semi-hollow body allows for a large range of styles to be accessed without feedback or excessive overtones potentially harming your overall sound. The subtle Tobacco Burst finish not only looks great but allows the wood to vibrate and resonate freely. There’s a pair of Classic Elite pickups designed to work together seamlessly bringing out the best of the notes you play and the overtones the wood produces. Short scale necks are a practical design for all bass players regardless of the person’s size. It predominantly boosts the low end which is ideal for bass guitars. The AGBV205 still has 22 frets with the cut reaching the 19th for easy accessibility to the high end. The Rosewood fingerboard is both comfortable and mellow sounding. Despite having 5 strings Ibanez have kept a slim profile without cramping the strings or making it difficult to play.
