  • Ibanez CTB5 5 String Bass

    A rare(ish) gem from Ibanez; the CTB5 5 string bass. Not sure of the year on this one but my guess is early-90s. An alternative to the Soundgear basses of the time, this monster cranks out an absolutely huge tone and plays as smooth as you’d expect from Ibanez. Natural finish (with usual wear and tear - nothing major though), active EMG pickup upgrade and cool pointy headstock! One thing of note is that the input has been switched to the front (not by me) as the stock one seems to have died. This does not affect the tone at all though - this thing sounds huge! A shame to let it go but the merry-go-round of guitar buying must go on! Grab yourself a piece of little-known Ibanez history! You will not be disappoint!

Bass Guitars

Bass guitars have become increasingly popular in recent years, mostly because they are a good option for beginners. After all, the typical four strings of a beginner bass are easier to handle than the usual six on a guitar. Plus, the instrument provides the backbone to any song, rhythmically and harmonically, so it suits many genres and styles. However, many types are available, and choosing a quality one involves some key considerations.

Acoustic vs. Electric

Because bass guitars differ considerably in price and quality, consider your experience level, your needs, and the type of music you intend to play before making a choice. Basic acoustic bass guitars are a good choice for those only starting to learn how to play. Plus, it doesn't require any additional equipment and suits many types of music. Alternatively, if you're an experienced player, you may want an electric bass guitar for better electronics. However, the tradeoff is in the extra equipment needed and more involved set-up.

Body Shape

Bass guitars come in multiple shapes, so it is important to choose a model that suits your playing style while feeling good in your hands. Body shapes vary, but the main ones you can find include P-Bass, J-Bass, and modern. P-Bass guitars are a good option for rock and reggae, whereas J-Bass designs work well for styles that require more accuracy. Finally, modern bass guitars, such as Ibanez or Ernie Ball bass guitars, suit for a wide range of styles as they are the most versatile. In any case, generally any genre can benefit from the addition of bass guitar.

Type of Wood

The wood a bass guitar is made of is not only important for the appearance of the instrument, but also for the sound. Some of the most common choices include alder, ash, basswood and mahogany.
