  1. That's the best and the most beautiful headstock Ibanez has ever made i wish they would hear me and start producing all the 6ers with this headstock in tha future .
    I thing it looks like a Fodera headstock !

    I really want to see Ibanez producing an Ashula look alike standard 6 string bass , both Headstock and body shape are awesome .

    What do you think ?

    Here are some links to compare .


  2. The bodies and headstocks of both basses look the same to me. The Ashula headstock looks slightly bigger considering the pegs are a little more spaced out.

    Anyway... Check it out: conversed to any Ibanez prototype, any series, pretty much like the ltd. ed. Ashula, which've always been ash bodies, the new SRentries come in mahogany, as for tonewoods.

    But then again: very similar headstock to recent Gerry Veasley and Adam Nitti signature 6ers

    Both look the same to me but the Ashula is a litle wider. I saw an Ashula at my local mom&pop store. Neat bass but kind of wierd to have EADG fretted and DG again but fretless.

    I'm not really seeing much of a difference. I would take either. I do like the Ashula logo.

    I'd much rather see a 6 string with a musician style body and head.

    I don't think the ashula is wider - the color makes it look wider.

    After owning an ashula it definitely is wider. The entire bass is bigger than your normal soundgear. The strings are 20mm spacing

    One thing that irks me slightly about Ibanez is that where as most other companies have 4 or maybe 5 different headstock designs in their line of acoustic, electric, guitar, and bass products, Ibanez has dozens. (Maybe close to one dozen)
