Ibanez Black Eagle Electric Bass Guitar
Its a rare instance when the bass builders at Ibanez re-visit the companys history. But even for the very forward-thinking Ibanez design team, the 40th anniversary of the legendary Black Eagle bass was too important a milestone to ignore. Heres a limited edition re-issue that opens the door to an alternate universe circa 1975.
The first head-turner is the mahogany body with its sharp inward-turned cutaways, along with its gracefully shaped F-hole headstock, which sets the stage for this Black Eagle re-issue to brim with 70s-era cool. Its Maple fretboard boasts an intricate custom inlay, but the decorative pi¨ce de rsistance is most certainly the white-on-black Abolone eagle that lives near the lower horn.
Alnico magnetic Super J pickups imbue the Black Eagle with bright aggressive tonal powers. The Mother-Of-Pearl anointed headstock bears the original, classic Ibanez logo.
