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

The AFT4FMP features sleek, simplistic design, contrasted by hardware that's anything but basic. The body is constructed with a Walnut body accented with flamed Maple and a natural flat finish. Complimented with a 3-piece maple neck and Ebony fretboard, reinforced with 2 graphite rods for superior stability. 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.

With its combination of the piezo and magnetic pickup, the 2 band EQ assist bassist in finding their perfect tone.
