The TCB1006 is a six string, semi-hollow body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in late 2017. It is a signature model for American musician and producer Stephen "Thundercat" Bruner. It is made in Japan by Sugi.

The TCB1006 features a semi-hollow, single-cutaway design with a quilted maple top with ivory binding on curly maple back and sides mated to a set-in maple and purpleheart neck with a 24 fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearloid acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of EMG 45Hz passive magnetic pickups, a Hipshot A-style bridge with Graph Tech Ghost piezo saddles, a Graph Tech Ghost on-board EQ, Sure Grip III knobs, Hipshot tuners, and Gotoh strap locks.
