Comments from customers who bought this item:
The Ibanez SR1805 features a stunning mahogany and walnut body topped with stunning rosewood and flamed maple, creating a visually stunning aesthetic worthy of the premium name. The combination of mahogany and walnut provides the bass with an incredible beautiful tone, delivering incredible warmth and dynamics which complement the neck and fingerboard. The rosewood and flamed maple top creates a similar style found in neck-though-body guitars, offering a bright middle encased by the rosewood’s dark look.
Atlas 5-Piece Wenge/Bubinga Neck
As well as a comfortable body shape, the SR1805 Premium Bass Guitar features an atlas 5-piece wenge and bubinga neck, offering superb tonal clarity and superior note attack. Like many basses from Ibanez, this stunning model features a rosewood fingerboard, which provides a warm, soft tone with a natural feel. This classic fingerboard is also decorated with abalone oval inlays for added elegance, and each fret features their Premium fret edge treatment for a smooth and comfortable performance.
Nordstrand ''Big Single'' Pickups
A set of Nordstrand ''Big Single'' pickups provide the bass with its full-bodied, powerfully aggressive tone, whilst still retaining its clarity for the ultimate single-coil sound. The ''Big Single'' pickup's incredibly huge, loud sounds are achieved by using the biggest coils they could fit within the soapbar cover, resulting in the perfect jazz bass-on-steroids tone.
3-Band EQ With EQ Bypass Switch
One of the most unique features of this 5-string bass guitar is the 3-band EQ, featuring an EQ bypass switch to shape and craft the tone of your guitar with maximum control. With controls over treble, mid, and bass, the 3-band EQ lets you to mould every nuance of your sound to find the perfect tone for your playing. The bypass switch flicks between the original and affected tone, letting you experiment and create a range of tonal possibilities.
Mid-Frequency Select Switch
In addition to the 3-band EQ, the SR also features a mid-frequency select switch to expand its tone shaping capabilities. This control lets you instantly switch between 250Hz, 450Hz, and 700Hz, the heart of the mid zone, to create a more dynamic and ideal tone when needed.
Mono-Rail V Bridge
The Premium Bass features a stylish Mono-rail V bridge, adding to the beautiful aesthetic of the bass while improving string stability and sustain. This innovative design offers a wide intonation adjustment range, and each independent saddle provides a maximum string vibration transfer without any interference.
GraphTech Black Tusq Nut
Unlike other basses from Ibanez, the SR1805 Bass features a black Tusq nut from Graph Tech. Tusq is impregnated with PTFE, a slippery substance that reduces the binding grip the nut has on the strings, transferring the strings vibrations efficiently to the guitar. Players can achieve a balanced tone with increased harmonics, along with clear highs and open lows.
