Ibanez 2609B Black Eagle 2015 Ltd Edition Bass Guitar Krist Novoselic Nirvana

Out of stock

Here for sale is an Ibanez 2960B Black Eagle 2015 Reissue Bass of the legendary ’70’s bass, made famous by Krist Novoselic of Nirvana.

A great sounding bass that is a joy to play and comes with a fitted hard case. Limited edition and hard to get hold of. Great style unique inlays, eagle shaped headstock. Lots of bass mojo! The bass is in great condition it does have some light play wear and a scratch on the on the back of the body which just gives the bass more played in character. It is nicely weighted and the neck feels great to play and looks seriously cool the black binding the runs around the neck and the matching black headstock with the lower scroll intact looks fantastic. The has so much character with the intricate and stylish inlays in the maple fretboard and the way the horns curve round like eagle claws are very distinctive. It has an amazing sound with the Ibanez Super J pick ups. The eagle on the pick guard is majestic with it’s abalone inlay and detailed intertwined pattern that runs around the edge of the pick guard. A truly wondrous looking bass that commands attention in looks and sound. Krist Novoselic of Nirvana knew he was onto a great bass when he first starting playing one in 1987, and with all the basses he could have played in the world he kept several black eagles in his arsenal through out Nirvana and beyond. Ibanez rarely reissue their instruments so when they decided to do so in 2015 you know this bass is something special. Slightly lighter than the original which just adds to its increased playability. The case fits it well and is fully functional, although the top end of the case is a bit off in alignment when closing so you just have to pull it a little bit into position to get it to close better. To hear how good these basses can sound just listen to the opening notes of ‘Blew’ on the first Nirvana album ‘Bleach’ and Nirvana’s concert ‘Live and Loud’ in Seattle on the 13th December 1993 to hear it in its unbridled live setting. This Black Eagle will soar!

Ibanez has announced they will reissue the famed 2609B, also known as the Black Eagle bass. Admitting they are not apt to reissue many instruments, the company says the limited edition run marks the 40th anniversary of the classic model.

The bass has several striking features, including its distinctly sculpted mahogany body, its f-hole shaped headstock, and custom position marker inlays. Of course, the most recognisable part of the bass is the abalone eagle set in its lower horn.

Ibanez chose a pair of alnico magnetic Super J pickups to give the bass a “bright, aggressive” tone. Finally, the headstock is inlaid with a mother-of-pearl classic Ibanez logo.
