Crafted with a boutique mindset, the original Affirma Bass was made in the 90's in conjunction with Swiss luthier Rolf Spuler. Ibanez has now revived the Affirma and added some modernity to it. Boasting a highly unique design, improved AFR4 appointments, and advanced electronics, this bass is for the player with a unique style.

Highly Unique Design
The only thing that's familiar about this bass is the amount of strings. The fine flamed maple/walnut top gives the body a smooth, natural look. The interesting contours and beveled top even include a thumb rest above the strings which makes for a great feel when playing. The AFR4FMP Premium has an AFR4 3-piece maple neck with Graphite reinforcement rods and half neck-through construction, for great sustain across the ebony fretboard.

Improved AFR4 Appointments
This unique beauty is decked in quality, drawing on the original Affirma model for inspiration. The fretboard is devoid of marking, except for a really cool Abalone oval off-set dot inlay at the 12th fret, subtly placed between the 1st and 2nd strings. The AeroSilk MR5 Bridge has individual saddles for reduced interference, also providing maximum vibrational transfer. Black matte knobs add a great contrast to the wood aesthetic of the body. The AFR4FMP is completed by a "Designed by Rolf Spurler" inlay between the bridge and pickup, so you won't forget how special it is.

Advanced Electronics
The tone of the AFR4FMP Premium is beautiful and wide-ranging. The Bartolini X44JX pickup sports a split-coil design which affords that low-end luster. It's complemented by a bridge piezo for a slightly different tonal ambiance. The combination of the two, coupled with the 2 band EQ, allow for magnificent sound, customized to your liking.
