Styled in an autumn burst flat matte finish, the Ibanez Stephen "Thundercat" Bruner Signature Series TCB1006 is a six-string, hollow-body electric bass that offers a bevy of tonal possibilities thanks to its magnetic, piezo, and MIDI pickups. It also provides a comprehensive switching system for fashioning tonal palettes utilizing these pickups and pickup combinations.
The body of the bass is constructed out of maple, specifically quilted maple in the top and curly maple in the back and sides. The five-piece set-in neck, measuring 34" in scale, is crafted out of maple and purpleheart, and sports a bound rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets. Acrylic block inlays give the bass a vintage look that cleverly masks its comprehensive electronic system.
Onto that electronic system, now analyzed in depth: You'll find two EMG 45HZ magnetic pickups, both passive humbuckers with low noise, high output, and a naturally warm tone. Compounding these pickups are a piezo pickup and a MIDI output, all governed by the Graph Tech Ghost Modular Pickup System. With this system, you can control and blend a multitude of tones via two dedicated volume knobs and three toggle switches. These toggle switches let you switch between MIDI/analog audio/blend, engage MIDI PC messages (up and down), and enable the Ghost's natural, acoustic sound voicing.
A Hipshot A-style bridge anchors strings to the body, and also houses the Graph Tech Ghost Saddle pickup. At the headstock, you'll find Hipshot Ultralite tuning machines. A hardshell case is included. 13.3lb
