Styled in a black flat finish, the Ibanez K5BKF is Fieldy's signature series 5-string electric bass. Fieldy is the bass player from Korn, and his playing is quite recognizable for its aggressive slaps and pops in a nu-metal context. The instrument sports a nyatoh body and a 34" scale, bolt-on maple/walnut neck with a jatoba fingerboard and 24 medium frets. 

For electronics, the instrument utilizes two Ibanez ADX5 active pickups, one in the neck and the other in the bridge. A Vari-Mid 3-band EQ is on hand for tonal tweaking. This preamp gets its name from its concentrically stacked midrange knobs, with one knob controlling the level of boost or cut, and the other determining the center frequency of the boost/cut in a continuously variable way. The bass and treble boost/cut knobs are also concentrically stacked. A volume and pickup balance knobs are also available for tonal shaping.

Tough and Durable 5-Piece Maple/Walnut Neck

Fieldy's K5 features a tough and durable five-piece maple/walnut neck.

Jatoba Fingerboard

Jatoba has a reddish-brown color, and produces a rich midrange with a crisp high end.

Vari-Mid 3-Band EQ

A Vari-Mid EQ with sweepable midrange allows you to dial in various bass sounds, including Fieldy's preference of no midrange at all.
