    Guitar and bass maker Ibanez displayed a very large number of products at the recent Anaheim NAMM musical instrument convention. The expansion of Ibanez Prestige models definitely includes their Soundgear bass line. 2005 Prestige Soundgears feature neck-thru construction for better sustain, stability and upper fret access.

    The 4-string and 5-string Soundgear Prestige models are available with the choice of flamed maple top and maple body wings for players desiring a brighter sound and mahogany wings and a walnut top for those favoring a darker sound. The 6-string Soundgear Prestige features maple wings with a flamed maple top. A fourth generation Mono-Rail bridge featured on all Soundgear Prestige models offers improved string-to-string isolation for better total integrity and even easier string changes.

  3. Ibanez is on the right track however the maple bodes are not good for heavy rock or metal. You need the basswood bodes i have two 1986 Ibanez Roadstar II 885 Basses with fully active emg's the coolest sound. I do like the new concave body.
