Ibanez is constantly striving 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 - Soundgear Series Basses continue to inspire with their smooth and fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.
IT STARTS WITH THE BASS
The SR Series neck is famous for its slim easy-to-play profile. The Atlas 5pc Wenge/Bubinga neck provides tonal clarity and superior note attack, and its slim grip shape permits superior playability. This SR bass also uses the Mono-Rail V bridge, which is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge section is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
PREMIUM FRET EDGE TREATMENT
The premium fret edges are processed to be specially rounded for smooth play and comfortable neck grip.
Nordstrand "Big Single" crams as meaty a single coil as can fit in a soapbar style pickup, producing a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, while still retaining the clarity that's characteristic of single coil pickups.
IBANEZ CUSTOM ELECTRONICS 3-BAND EQ W/EQ BYPASS SWITCH & MID FREQUENCY SWITCH
Precision tonal control, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
GRAPH TECH BLACK TUSQ XL NUT
The Graph Tech Black Tusq Xl nut offers ultimately lower friction to keep you in tune and gives clearer sound and sustain.
GOTOH MACHINE HEADS
The Gotoh machine heads offer superior tuning stability.
