  1. I picked up this recently and it's a killer bass!
    Honestly the first bass I've enjoyed that's not a Music Man.

    Hi there, fellow EHB owner...

    So, you are a sevenstring player too?

    Great sound and playing!
    were you already acquainted with fanned frets?
  9. Thank you!
    I owned a Dingwall NG3 that I never really gelled with

    Kinda of a bizarre request, but would you mind measuring the overall length of the instrument for us?
    Every video seems to say that they'll fit in a "standard electric guitar" gig bag/case, but I can't find an actual measurement listed anywhere.

    Many thanks, and killer axe!

    Not to hijack @therealacameron thread, but I've shown that I use my Mono M80 Vertigo Electric Guitar as replacement of the flappy bag that came with my EHB1005MS on my EHB1005MS thread, though I haven't measured the exact length of it.

  12. It came in an Ibanez premium guitar gig bag so any guitar gig bag should work

    Mono lists that case as 41.5" overall, so that should help. Thank you!
    Posting the spec here in case anyone else is curious. Mods feel free to delete if it's out of place.

    Yeah, although IMHO, it's kinda misleading Ibanez wrote it as a premium bag.

    Yup, that's about it. I also own Mono M80 Classic Electric Guitar bag (both the Classic and the Vertigo were pictured to fit instrument up to 41.5" tall). I use them with my short 30" scale Ibanez bass (besides my electric guitar, obviously). Now both can be use also for the EHB.

    I'm thinking of getting Mono latest M80 bag called the Stealth, which is like the slimmer version of the Vertigo. It is pictured to have similar internal dimension with thinner profile and it actually could fit up to 42" tall instrument. Logically, it should fit the EHB also. Reason for thinking of the Stealth, is because being a headless bass, the EHB only have a small shaped headstock, which isn't angled towards the back. So, it doesn't require a thick neck support provided by the M80 Classic and Vertigo, which made them to have overall thicker dimensions.
  15. I always assumed it was because of the Premium line, not that it was a premium bag haha

    I thought so too... since in current Ibanez bass numbering scheme, a model that carries numbers of thousands means that it belongs to the Premium line.

    Very nice! That three finger technique is so different it throws me when I’m watching — great playing and tone.

    I’m a vintage Ibanez fan but really want one of these.

    Nice looks and maybe my new bass too. How is the neck profile on this one? I have two SR series bases and the neck is so comfortable. Are you able to use normal strings or do they have to be superlongs?

    The EHB series is one of the nicest things Ibanez has come up with in years. OP, enjoy that great bass!
