EHB1265MS - Natural Mocha Low Gloss
The Ibanez Bass Workshop EHB1265MS is armed with an ergonomic design and hugely versatile tone, making it a coveted instrument for any bassist. This EHB comes with an ash body and an eye-catching walnut top that work together to provide a well-balanced and resonant tonal foundation. Two Bartolini BH2 humbucking pickups deliver a classic soapbar sound without any of the hum that plagues vintage pickups. Beyond that, the EHB1265MS comes with a 3-band Vari-mid active EQ for flexible tone-shaping. Your fingers will delight at the smooth playability provided by the 9-piece panga panga/walnut neck, panga panga fingerboard, and expertly dressed stainless steel frets. Other Sweetwater-approved appointments include the MR5HS bridge with adjustable string spacing, Schaller S-Locks strap lock pins, and glow-in-the-dark side dots. If you’re after a lights-out bass that shines when the lights go down onstage, look no further than the Ibanez Bass Workshop EHB1265MS.

Ergonomic body design
The EHB’s headless construction and specially designed body enable the player to maintain a similar playing position whether seated or standing.
Slanted body back
The top half of the back of the body is slanted which allows the bass to rest slightly closer to the player’s body for better control and a more ergonomic feel.
Comfortably rounded body edge, Chambered body
Its contoured, ergonomic design and chambered body make for a lightweight, well-balanced, and comfortable instrument that’s excellent for long sets or practice session.
Scooped cut on the body back
There is extra carving on the back of the body behind the lower horn for easier upper fret access.
9pc Panga Panga/Walnut neck w/Graphite reinforcement rods
The 9-piece Panga Panga/Walnut neck provides superior note attack, tight lows and increased sustain with the Panga Panga fretboard.
Luminescent side dot inlays
Luminescent side dot inlay provides clear visibility in dark environments.
Bartolini® BH2 pickups
The Bartolini® BH2 pickups provide a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.
Vari-Mid 3-Band EQ w/EQ bypass switch
The Vari-mid 3-band EQ features a variable mid-frequency control which allows you to dial in an incredibly wide range of sounds. There is also an EQ bypass switch for passive operation with the treble control acting as a passive tone control when the EQ is bypassed.
MR5HS mono rail bridge w/string spacing adjustable saddles
The MR5HS bridge is designed especially for the EHB basses and features wide intonation range. Each bridge piece is independently and securely attached to the body for maximum vibration transfer, and the saddles are adjustable for string spacing +/-1.5mm, answering every bassist’s individual string spacing demands, no matter what playing style. Teflon washers are used on each tuner for a smooth tuning action.
Schaller S-Locks strap pins and Neutrik locking jack
Schaller S-Lock strap lock pins and a Neutrik locking jack hold the strap and cable securely.
