It's a rare instance when the bass builders at Ibanez re-visit the company's history. But even for the very forward-thinking Ibanez design team, the 40th anniversary of the legendary Black Eagle bass was too important a milestone to ignore. Here's a limited edition re-issue that opens the door to a 1975 alternate universe.
The first head-turner is mahogany body with its sharp inward-turned cutaways, along with its gracefully shaped F-hole headstock, which sets the stage for this Black Eagle re-issue to brim with 70s-era cool. Its Maple fretboard boasts an intricate custom inlay, but the decorative pièce de résistance is most certainly the white-on-black Abalone eagle that lives near the lower horn.
Alnico magnetic Super J pick-ups give the Black Eagle the bright aggressive tonal powers of the original. Mother-Of-Pearl anointed headstock bear the original Ibanez logo. Call your Musiciansbuy Bass specialist for more info!
