From its carefully-selected exotic woods and stunning body lines to its cutting-edge electronics, the Limited Edition Grooveline G205RTF represents the finest artistry in electric basses Ibanez has to offer. This beautifully crafted instrument features an ergonomically-designed Alder body with a Japanese Horse Chestnut top and back, a five-piece wenge and bubinga neck with six-point bolt-on construction for incredibly solid feel and loads of sustain and resonance, a solid brass Tight-End bridge which marries the string and body with no loss of vibration, and a gorgeous Ruby Burst satin finish.
The CAP Sonic Arch neck and bridge pickups provide clean, thick bottom end and crystal-clear highs. These single-sized humbuckers with blade pole pieces and E5 3-band dedicated EQ deliver well-balanced, traditional tone for any music and style.
Due to the rarity of woods used, only seven of these instruments have been produced worldwide.

The ergonomic body shape provides the perfect balance for playing, either sitting or standing.
