Discover new creative freedom with the uniquely comfortable Ibanez EHB1505 headless 5-string bass.

Play Comfortably for Hours With the Ergonomic Headless Design

The headless configuration of the EHB1505 sheds unnecessary mass for a lightweight feel that makes extended playing sessions a breeze. Its body contours mold to your torso whether seated or standing, while a beveled cutaway and recessed backrest grant seamless access to the 24th fret and beyond. The extended upper fret range enables more expressive soloing and harmonics. A smooth satin finish enhances resonance while minimizing friction against your body and forearm. Between its ergonomic body shaping and lightweight headless format, the EHB1505 provides unhindered comfort for exploring the outer limits of the fingerboard.

Fat, Clear Tone With Mahogany Body and Nordstrand Pickups

For robust low-end punch and rich sustain, the EHB1505 pairs a figured poplar burl top with an African mahogany body. Its smooth frequency response and singing overtones bring out the best in the custom-voiced Nordstrand Big Split humbucking pickups. With ceramic magnets, these pickups convey tight and focused mids with plenty of grind in the lows and silky highs. Switch between parallel and series modes to tailor the output and tonal character. A 3-band EQ lets you hone the bass, treble and midrange frequencies with cut/boost up to 15dB, while the EQ bypass returns you to the pure passive tone.

Smooth and Precise Playing Feel

The EHB1505's nine-piece maple/walnut neck provides rock-solid stability thanks to graphite reinforcement rods. Its smooth panga panga fingerboard facilitates effortless runs across its 20 jumbo stainless steel frets. The 18 mm string spacing at the bridge prevents inadvertent muting of adjacent strings when playing with a heavy hand. Whether you favor fingerstyle funk or hard rock pummeling, the EHB1505's premium components help your technique shine.

Gig-Ready Features Like Locking Jack and S-Lock Straps

The EHB1505 comes prepared for the demands of gigging and the road. Its Neutrik locking output jack secures your cable connection through rowdy sets, while Schaller S-Locks keep your strap firmly attached. The truss rod adjustment wheel simplifies maintenance, providing easy access without removing the neck. Luminescent side dots make onstage positioning a breeze in dimly lit venues. For safe storage and transport, a padded gig bag is included.
