Ibanez in a surprise move is releasing a series of headless basses for this year. https://www.ibanez.com/eu/products/model/ehb/ The black is as boring as they come but I dig the seafoam green one. A bit on the fence for the burl top model finishes, I wish they had done the "beach" finish they have on some of their guitars instead of that somewhat odd purple and green/blue. The main differences for these models are burl top, panga pange neck/fretboard, Nordstrand pickups vs basswood body, roasted maple neck/fretboard and Bartolini pickups on the solid colors. 33-35" multiscale. I love that they have gone with the shorter 33" for the high string, it's perfect. I really like the BTB-ish body as well. Pricing at Thomann is 1199€ for solid colors and 1599€ for burl tops, 1699€ for the 6-string. Available in 3-4 weeks.
