Headless bass with an ergonomic body design and Nordstrand Big Split Custom pickups.

The Ibanez EHB1505SMS 5-string multi-scale ergonomic headless bass guitar brings together comfort, playability and versatility in a forward-thinking design. Crafted for the modern bassist, its contours and light weight feel great on stage while the electronics and hardware unlock a wide palette of tones. With its angled fingerboard and multi-scale layout, it maintains consistent string tension for excellent intonation and defined low end. The EHB1505SMS gives you the freedom to craft your signature sound.

Play All Day With the Ergonomic Headless Design

The headless configuration of the EHB1505SMS removes excess body mass from the top of the instrument, letting it rest close against your body. This improves balance whether standing or sitting. The lightweight chambered mahogany body with a figured burl poplar top enhances resonance and sustain while reducing fatigue. Scooped cutaways and a slanted upper body further the ergonomic design. Together, these features make for a comfortable bass that's excellent for extended practice or live performance.

Dial in Your Tone With the Nordstrand Pickups

Equipped with a pair of Nordstrand Big Split humbucking pickups, the EHB1505SMS provides exceptional tonal variety. These pickups offer a balanced P/J-style voicing through an active 3-band EQ with sweepable mids and a passive tone circuit. The EQ gives you deep control over your fundamental tone. And coil-splitting capabilities expand the tonal palette even further. Whether you need a smooth neck pickup jazz sound or an aggressive bridge pickup rock tone, this bass has you covered.

Panga Panga Neck and Fingerboard for Articulate Response

The EHB1505SMS neck is built from nine pieces of panga panga and walnut for rock-solid stability. Panga panga is also used for the fingerboard, providing tight lows, focused mids and crisp high-end attack. Medium stainless steel frets offer smooth playability and durability. Graphite reinforcement rods running through the neck provide enhanced sustain. Combined with the ergonomic design, this bass neck offers outstanding playability and tone.

Consistent String Tension With Multi-Scale Layout

To provide optimized tension across the five strings, the EHB1505SMS utilizes a fanned multi-scale layout. This means the bass side strings are longer than the treble side. The result is consistent tension and tone between strings. No more flubby low B string or overly tight high C string. Just even response and articulation up and down the neck. The wider string spacing at the bridge also aids playability.
