Ibanez AGBV200A 5-String Bass Guitar

The AGBV205A is something of a hybrid, possessing both the play-ability and sustain of a traditional electric bass along with the harmonics and openness of an acoustic bass. Not quite as bulky or cumbersome as full acoustic bass would be, the AGBV205A is a Hollow-Body 5 String Bass that is comfortable to play and can handle a wide range musical styles.

The sought after vintage look without the outrageous price tag. The Artcore bass features distressed wood as well as hardware that give it an aged look beyond its years.  Of course the same great tone and play-ability that the Ibanez Artcore line is known for has been persevered.

Key Features

  • 5-String Hollow Body Bass Guitar
  • Distressed Tobacco Burst Finish
  • Antique Chrome Hardware
  • Classic Elite Pickups

2016 Vintage

It's hard to mimic the look and tone of aged wood, but that didn't stop Ibanez. The Artcore Vintage Line comes remarkably close to creating an instrument that looks realistically aged right out of the box. The Distressed tobacco finish is worn and faded in key spots, while a few subtle nicks add to the character. Ibanez took the extra step, by including Antique Chrome hardware.

Open & Responsive

The tone of the Maple body is enhanced by the low gloss finish, which allows the wood to breath and resonate freely. This gives the AGBV205A an open responsive tone with lots of natural overtones. Paired with the medium output Classic Elite pickups which enhance the warmth and mid range punch without being overly prone to on-stage feedback.

      From The Manufacturer

      There’s something enticing about the look of an older, vintage gear—well worn with battle scars, earned throughout its years of hard use. Much like a vintage leather jacket or rare antique furnishings, it immediately feels comfortable and sets a tone unlike anything brand new, right off the shelf. It’s this idea that inspired the new Ibanez Artcore Vintage Series. Lurking beneath its aged looking façade and smoky, low gloss finish is a sophisticated semi-hollow that can easily handle almost any musical challenge imaginable. The AGBV205A features a select-grade maple top, back and sides. The fretboard is a rich rosewood, contrasted by white dot inlays. The 3-piece Artcore Maple/Mahogany neck has proven its reliability on thousands of Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies throughout the years. The authentic rosewood bridge is rock solid. The Classic Elite pickups are matched perfectly to Artcore basses: very responsive, warm in tone coloration yet since they are of moderate output, minimizing the likelihood of feedback.
