January 1, 2021: The Ibanez EHB series has enjoyed immense success since its introduction last year and capitalizing off that momentum, Ibanez is introducing two new short scale EHB designs, the EHB1000S and the EHB1005SMS. 

EHB1000S_PMM_1P_01

The EHB1000S is equipped with all of the same features as the EHB1000, but utilizing a 30” scale length. The EHB1005SMS is largely similar but features multiscale construction. The scale length is 30” on the g string and 32” on the B string.

These basses also feature contoured, ergonomic designs and chambered bodies that make for a lightweight, well-balanced, and comfortable playing experience; excellent for long sets or practice sessions. There is an extended relief cut on the back of the body behind the lower horn for easier upper fret access. Also, the top half of the back of the body is slanted which allows the bass to rest slightly closer to the player’s body for better control and a more ergonomic feel.
