Ibanez 4 String Bass Guitar


+ Beautiful design
+ Hard-wearing and durable
+ Clear tone
+ Light as a feather
+ Warm sound

+ It’s an Ibanez, which means great quality
+ Small-scale, so good for those with small hands
+ Easy-to-play

It’s light and durable, which are two elements that you don’t find often with a starter bass. Whether you play rock-n-roll or the blues, you’ll get great sound out of this bass, and you won’t need to pay more than $500 too.

It’s an Ibanez and you get a professional quality bass for under $500. The sound is great. And the small-scale means it’s easy to play.
