SR Premium is the new standard for the serious professional musician.

Made by Ibanez Premium factory with great attention to detail.

USA Nordstrand Big Single pickups provide huge, full, loud, and aggressive single-coil tone.

EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ, with Mid frequency switch and eq bypass switch, gives you a world of possibilities in tone.

Mono-Rail IV bridge with locking saddles allows each string to vibrate fully with no interference from the other strings.

Pickups: Nordstrand pickups provide the clear sound characteristic of single coil pickups, while the large body gives players a powerful and aggressive tone for a wide range of bass tones, great for any style of music.

Neck: The 5 piece Wenge/Bubinga neck is also bolstered with KTS Titanium Reinforcement rods inside for added strength.


REVIEW: "Ibanez goes high end!"

Sound: Ok kids, I never give 10s to anything because I always feel they can do better but this one is VERY freakin' close.

At just over a grand, this bass has all the details that a boutique number might have, including Nordstrand pickups (shut up!!).

Using an Ampeg Portaflex PF 500 head with an Avatar 2x10 cab at 4 ohms, and it is loud. My band commented on the richnesss right away. Great J-Bass style tone but fatter. Typical in that with both pickups dimed the sound thins out, but I slant it toward the neck pickup and it cranks.

Ready to break out of the 'garage band' bass sounds? Here's your ticket. I'm an MTD lover but this bass has tone for days and is so-o-o easy to play on my middle-aged fingers (yeah I heard Cream on Top 40 radio in high school gym class) that I couldn't resist it.

The neck is very even tonewise too, which the MTD Kingstons do not have. And, the EQ is very usable as opposed to being a tone killer. I hate active basses that have 1 usable setting. This one ain't that. I have to take issue with the input jack. Works better on the side like always, Ibanez. And for some reason, my Batt-O-Meter will not work with it. Probly need to look at the manual for that gadget.

Great bass, don't buy it. I want mine to be the only one in town. :-)
