In the early 90's, Ibanez broke into the high-end boutique bass market with its unique concept of Affirma bass. The compact and lightweight body, designed by Swiss luthier Rolf Spuler resulted in a bass with an elegant feel, enhanced by its beautiful streamline shape. It was created to meet the critical demands of musicians who required a natural sounding, sensitive instrument with wide dynamic range and effortless playability during even the longest performances. Additionally, the instrument needed to look as distinctive as it sounds.

The AFR5PBP features a Maple body with stunning Poplar Burl on the top, delivering a superior tonal clarity and sonic attack. The neck is a 3pc Maple neck with 2 Graphite rods inside for added stability, jointed to half of the body. The "half neck-through" construction helps to reduce sacrificing the body’s vibration and achieves massive sustain. The Ebony fretboard on the neck provides a tight response. The neck end adjustment allows you to adjust the neck easily without loosening the strings. The AeroSilk MR5 bridge has unique saddles which were designed to work in concert with the piezo pickups and enhance the acoustic "stand-up" quality of the sound. The bridge allows for a wide intonation adjustment range and each isolated bridge is securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference. Bartolini X55JX split coil design pickups deliver a deep and punchy tone. With its combination of the piezo and magnetic pickups and the 2 band EQ, bassists can find their perfect tone. Other features include a special thumbrest on the body. A hard-shell case is included.
