The semi-hollow AS83 guitar from Ibanez features maple top, back, and sides, and handsome ivory binding on the body, headstock, and fingerboard.

An expertly crafted 3pc Maple/ Mahogany set-in neck ensures body liveliness and is fitted with a rich Ebony fretboard with silky contrasting pearl block inlays. The tortoise shell colored pickguard provides a gorgeous accent piece. The Ibanez-original Quick Change III tailpiece enables fast and easy string changing. The guitar also boasts a steel blue finish, gold hardware, and medium frets. List price is $826.65.

The SR670 & SR675 basses from Ibanez feature Ash tops with a stunning black and silver finish on a Mahogany body, as well as the new Accu-cast B500 & B505 bridges. The Ash top offers superior tonal clarity and attack, while the Mahogany body delivers a warm and fat low end. The principal feature of the new bridge is the saddles can be adjusted for various string spacing. The bridge was developed in an effort to meet the needs of various players who enjoy different string spacing. The saddles can be easily adjusted to widen or tighten the string spacing by +/- 1.5mm. It also allows for precise intonation and delivers excellent string-to-body vibration.

The thin, sturdy, and stable Jatoba/Walnut neck offers superior playability when combined with the extended neck joint, making the upper frets easily accessible. The truss rod adjustment at the neck pocket allows you to easily fine-tune the neck without loosening the strings. The Ibanez Custom 3-band electronics and 3-way mid-frequency switch allow for precise tonal control with selectable mid-range EQ points at 250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz. The Bartolini.BH2 dual-coil pickups, with their lower resonant frequency, provide a balanced warm response, tighter bottom end, and a fuller midrange. List price is $866.65.

The PBN14E-OPN short scale parlor acoustic bass is similar in feel to a regular guitar, making it more comfortable for both guitarists and electric bassists to play than a full size acoustic bass. The shorter scale and compact parlor body also make it a more user-friendly platform for beginners. Despite the compact body size, the PBN14E has an impressively powerful acoustic volume. The “open pore” finish as well as the Mahogany top, back, and sides contribute greatly to the overall tone. The neck joint being located at the 12th fret means the bridge connects at the center of the lower bout, which maximizes sonic resonance.

The “open pore” finish creates a more vintage feel, allowing the natural texture of the wood to be felt. The satin finish of the Mahogany neck helps facilitate fast and smooth position changes. The Ibanez Under Saddle Pickup accurately reproduces the acoustic nature of the bass, while the Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp provides the extra punch of on-board EQ, and the convenience of an easy-to-read digital tuner located on the upper bout. List price is $374.99
