Description

Four-string electric bass with half-through-neck, Bartolini pickup, piezo system and active preamp, case included

With the Ibanez Premium AFR4FMP-NTF Affirma Natural Flat, Ibanez the legendary Affirma design from the pen of the ingenious Swiss instrument maker Rolf Spuler is revived. The electric bass is based closely on the model of the early 1990s and uses an elaborate "half-through-neck" construction with a maple body and a graphite-reinforced, three-piece maple neck. A classical Bartolini pickup in the middle position and an Ibanez AeroSilk piezo system, which together guarantee a particularly versatile sound spectrum, also handle the electrical sound conversion. Last but not least the Ibanez premium AFR4FMP-NTF Affirma Natural Flat has four Ibanez AeroSilk MR5 mono rail bridges with piezo elements and precise Ibanez die-cast mechanics.

IBANEZ Premium AFR4FMP-NTF Affirma Natural Flat

The Ibanez Premium AFR4FMP-NTF Affirma Natural Flat is an authentic new edition of the Affirma Bass designed by Rolf Spuler with "Half-Through-Neck" construction.

Ibanez Affirma bass in "Half-Through-Neck" design

The heart of the Ibanez Premium AFR4FMP-NTF Affirma Natural Flat is an elaborate "Half-Through-Neck" construction that follows Rolf Spuler's sound philosophy and promises a finely articulated sound. This is based Ibanez on a maple body with a three-part top made of maple and walnut as well as a three-part maple neck with graphite reinforcement and an extremely slim headstock. The manoeuvrable "AFR" neck profile also offers optimum conditions for comfortable playability across all 24 frets of the ebony fingerboard. The ceiling also contains a thumb rest.

Bartolini Pickup and AeroSilk Piezo

As with the original, the Ibanez Premium AFR4 Ibanez also relies on a combination of magnetic pickup and a piezo system. The Bartolini X44JX pickup convinces with a powerful and full bass sound in the middle position, which captures the character of the four-string without distortion. The active Ibanez 2-band tone control allows the precise tuning of the sound. The Ibanez AeroSilk piezo pickup system, whose sound can be adjusted using the active tone control, also offers organically detailed acoustic sound.

Perfectly matched hardware equipment

Last but not least, the Ibanez premium Affirma AFR4FMP-NTF Natural Flat offers hardware equipment optimally matched to the instrument. Accordingly, there are four Ibanez AeroSilk MR5 single bridges on the body, which not only accommodate the piezo elements, but also decouple the strings from each other, thus promoting a differentiated sound. On the narrow headstock, Ibanez die-cast bass mechanics ensure a precise and stable tuning.
