Ibanez introduces six-string Thundercat TCB1006 bass

A New Signature Model For The Bass Virtuoso

Ibanez has revealed the product of a recent collaboration with multi-talented bass guitarist Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner, announcing his signature six-string TCB1006 bass.

The TCB1006 is a hollow body bass guitar featuring a five-piece maple/purpleheart neck with a reinforced structure to support six strings. The bass maintains its balance by reducing its headstock weight with the inclusion of lightweight Hipshot Ultralite tuners.


Elsewhere, the TCB1006 features the Graph Tech Ghost modular pickup system, offering Piezo and MIDI output options. This, combined with a passive humbucking EMG 45HZ pickup, provides the acoustic, hollow body tone necessary to replicate Thundercat’s signature sound. A rosewood fretboard, quilted maple top, and curly maple back and sides complete the quality design.
