The AEB105E is a five string AEB series acoustic/ electric bass model introduced by Ibanez for 2018. It is produced in China.

The AEB105E features a jumbo body (which is shares with the AEL series guitars) with a soft Florentine cutaway. The top is laminated spruce with black binding on sapele back and sides. The round soundhole has an abalone rosette. It has a maple neck with a 32" scale, 22-fret purpleheart or treated New Zealand pine fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a compensated plastic saddle in a purpleheart or treated New Zealand pine bridge with black plastic bridge pins, a plastic nut, and chrome Ibanez die-cast tuning machines.

Electronics consist of a Fishman Sonicore pickup connected to an Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp with onboard tuner powered by a 9V battery and balanced XLR and ¼" stereo outputs.

For 2019 the purpleheart fretboard and bridge were standardized in all markets.

The AEB10E is a four string version.
