For 30 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. With its continued popularity, Ibanez is constantly endeavoring to answer the wider needs of a variety of players, at a variety of budgets. But no matter what the specs, the heart is the same-SR continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.
5pc Maple/Walnut neck: The 5pc Maple/Walnut neck provides tonal clarity and superior attack.
Jatoba fretboard: Jatoba has a reddish brown color and produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
Medium frets: Medium sized frets enhance the accuracy of your notes.
Nyatoh body: Nyatoh used as the body wood provides a rich mid-low end.
PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups: Developed by Ibanez, the exposed pole pieces of the PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups produce a stronger signal and increase the response of the higher frequencies without sacrificing low end. The result is a tone rich in harmonic detail and dynamic expression.
Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ: The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is our latest refinement on the concept of simple, straightforward, no-nonsense EQ control. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centered on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.
Accu-cast B120 series bridge: The B120's extra-wide string slots can accommodate even the heaviest of gauges. The walls and channels of the new bridge plate effectively ”trap” the saddles, ensuring perfect directional uniformity.
3-way Power Tap switch: Accessed by the 3-way Power Tap switch, the pickups offer a choice of three tonal personalities: A rich humbucker sound, a pure single-coil sound, or an enhanced single coil sound— fattened by lows from the humbucker pickups.
