Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ with mid-frequency switch
Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is our latest refinement on the concept of simple, uncomplicated, no-nonsense EQ control. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centered on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.
Precise tone control, including a switch to choose passive control. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control button becomes the general tone control for the passive circuit.
The saddles can be adjusted +/- 1.5 mm to meet the bassist's detailed requirements and to find the best string distance for many playing styles.
