IBANEZ Announce Special AFR BASS Limited Run In TRANSPARENT GREY FLAT Finish

That’s right, Ibanez has announced a very limited edition run of their popular AFR basses in a transparent grey flat finish! The popular bass model was recently reintroduced, and to keep the hype train a-chuggin’, the good people at Ibanez have produced this special run of the iconic basses.

The AFR bass specs include:

  • AeroSilk Piezo system w/Active tone control: the EQ section incorporates the controls of the Bartolini pickups with the AeroSilk Piezo system. Controls include a Master volume, balance, and bass & treble controls for the Bartolini MK-1 pickups and a Master volume and tone control for the Piezo system.
  • Atlas 5pc Wenge/Walnut neck: the Atlas 5pc Wenge/Walnut neck provides tonal clarity and superior note attack, and its slim grip shape permits superior playability.
  • 5pc Maple/Purpleheart Scale Neck-Through: the combination of Maple/Purpleheart is as musical and it is durable. These two extremely dense materials offer the foundation of great sustain.
  • Bartolini® MK1 Pickups: the MK1 pickups are split coil designs that provide a very wide frequency range and enhanced definition for maximum accuracy. The Neck and Bridge pickups have equal response, like traditional single coils, but without the hum and noise.
  • Purpleheart fretboard w/Abalone oval inlay: purpleheart produces a rich mid-range with a crisp high end.
  • 5pc SR Maple/Walnut Through-Neck: the SR Portamento features 5-piece Maple/ Walnut through-neck for increased sustain and superior tone.
  • And more!
