The Ibanez SR655E 5-string electric bass is part of the Ibanez SR series, which feature legendary build quality, rounded contoured bodies, and smooth, fast necks. Ibanez SR basses have been a favorite among serious bass players for more than thirty years.
A Jatoba and Walnut 5-piece laminated neck with an extended neck joint is joined to the curvaceous Ash body. The extended neck joint provides easy access to the upper frets. The marrying of Jatoba with Walnut creates a neck that is strong and stable despite its thinness. Jatoba is a very strong and hardwood similar to Rosewood, making it ideal for fingerboard or neck wood.
Nordstrand CND pickups are installed on the SR655E, in a classic P/J combination that offers a versatile arrangement indispensable for the gigging bassist. In combination with the preamp, you can get a massive modern sound that will go from slappy deep R & B to raging metal.
The Ibanez Custom Electronics features a 3-band EQ with both boost and cut on the bass, mid and treble controls. A 3-way mid-frequency switch provides tonal variations that enhance simple chord work as well as complex soloing.
The Ibanez SR655E 5-string bass is both a serious tone machine and a beautiful conversation piece. When you consider Andy's is providing a hardshell case at no cost to you, it becomes a great deal too! Add it to the cart, and get yours on its way.
