Ibanez UB804 Upswing Electric Upright Bass, Mahogany Oil Burst
Ibanez UB804-MOB Electric Upright Bass Overview by GAK:
The very talented designers and luthiers of Ibanez's 'Bass Workshop' department have been at it again! This time they have come up with the UB804 or “Upswing”, is Ibanez’s very first electric upright bass. The special AeroSilk Piezo pickup, along with the Walnut, Maple, and Jatoboa woods, combine to create a tone that is incredibly warm and true to the voicing of an acoustic upright bass.
The custom AeroSilk Piezo pickup is a specially modified piezo system detects the vibrations of the strings that vibrates in different shapes, and then outputs the signals at equalized level, whether bowing or finger picking. Includes a TAMA® Roadpro stand and padded gig bag that can carry the bass and stand with room for a bow too if you use one.

Love it - has its own voice somewhere between a regular fretless and other EUBs. The quality of the Tama stand is excellent too.
Great bass and sounds amazing
