Ibanez Premium SR2605 5-String Bass Guitar - Cerulean Blue Burst
The Ibanez Premium SR2605 5-String active bass is a wonderful instrument offering a truly standout appearance and a host of premium appointments.
The Ibanez SoundGear basses are always cosmetically appealling, thanks to their sculpted, compact body shape, but this Ibanez SR2605 really takes it to the next level. The mahogany body is stopped with poplar burl top that is "dressed" in Ibanez's unique Cerulean Blue Burst finish, whilst the natural bound element enhances the bodies natural curves.
Married to the body via a solid 4-bolt neck joint is the Atlas-5 15 piece (yes 15 piece!) neck. This neck design not only delivers obvious visual qualities but also allows for a more durable neck (increased with the KTS Titanium rods), in addition to tonal improvements and dynamic range. The neck is topped with a bound Panga Panga fingerboard that is set with Abalone oval inlays and medium frets, that have been enhanced with Ibanez's Premium fret edge treatment.
Loaded with a pair of Nordstrand Big Single pickups wired through an Ibanez 3-band custom EQ section, your tonal requirements will not be found wanting. The Big Singles are Norstrands' tonal giants within there range, packing a powerful and dynamic single coil into a soapbar sized casing. These pickups in conjunction with 3-band EQ will allow to you cover all basses (no pun intended) - go from Motown thump to a grindy, mid cutting rock tone to a modern day slap tone...and everything in between. The bass also hosts an EQ Bypass Switch, and a 3-Way Mid-Frequency Switch.
Other features of note include the gold hardware, the rock solid MR5 bridge and an included soft case.
