Ibanez Introduces the UB805 5-String Electric Upright Bass

First released in 2018, the Upswing series was Ibanez’s answer to calls for an electric upright that’s proportionally similar to a bass guitar

New for 2023, Ibanez has introduced the newest addition to its Upswing line of electric basses, the UB805. First released in 2018, the Upswing series was Ibanez’s answer to calls for an electric upright that’s proportionally similar to a bass guitar to allow players to more easily move between both instruments. The UB805 takes this concept to its logical next step with the addition of a low B string. The UB805 features similar construction to that of the UB804, employing a Maple body, Jatoba fingerboard, 34” scale length, and a custom AeroSilk Piezo Pickup system. The bass also includes a custom TAMA Roadpro stand and gig bag.
