The EHB1005MS features an American Basswood body and the 5-piece roasted maple/walnut neck for well-balanced tone and clear attack. The roasted maple in the neck is heat-treated to increase stability, durability, moisture resistance, and tolerance of temperature changes. The roasted maple fretboard is also heat-treated for a balanced attack and rich sustain. Highly durable stainless steel frets accentuate tonal brightness and will not rust. The luminescent side dot inlays are easy to see in dark environments and the truss rod adjustment is located at the end of neck for easy access.
The Ibanez EHB's headless construction and specially designed body enable the player to maintain a similar playing position whether seated or standing. Its contoured, ergonomic design and chambered body make for a lightweight, well-balanced, and comfortable instrument that's excellent for long sets or practice sessions.
