These versatile, easy-to-play instruments are consistently evolving with the times and can be seen gracing stages and studios the world over, with every conceivable level of player making full use of their groundbreaking design – try one just the once and you’ll see why professionals around the globe use an SR bass as their go-to instrument.
One of the best that Ibanez have to offer!
With the SR2605-CBB you are presented with a premium-range instrument that’s full of high-grade appointments, finished with a stunning Cerulean Blue Burst over a Poplar Burl top. Featuring a super-smooth 15pc neck, Poplar Burl top over a mahogany body, highly-versatile Nordstrand Big Single pickups, an active 3-band EQ, EQ bypass switch, and even a 3-way Mid Frequency selector switch, this is the kind of bass that would suit any gigging or studio environment.
With these “Big Single” pickups, Nordstrand have managed to cram as meaty a single-coil magnet as possible into a soapbar sized enclosure, giving you a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, but with the articulate clarity that you’d expect from a single-coil pickup. This makes the SR2605-CBB perfect for a variety of musical genres, where you need a combination of clear articulation and power rolled into one.
Part of what makes this bass so versatile is the Ibanez 3-band active EQ – allowing you to shape your tone to your heart’s desire – complimented by the awesome Mid Frequency Switch. This switch allows you to determine which mid-range frequencies are cut or boosted, offering you a wide variety of tonal variatians that can enhance your playing, regardless of how complex or straightforward it is.
On top of that there’s the addition of an EQ bypass switch for those moments where you want to just make use of those pure tones provided by the excellent Nordstrand Big Single pickups. With the EQ switched off the Treble pot reverts to a passive tone control, so you can still shape your sound to how you want it.
To cap off what is already a beautiful and stunning 5-string bass guitar, the SR2605-CRB hosts an array of premium-grade appointments. These include a Monorail 5 bridge, gold hardware, bound Panga Panga fretboard, Ibanez Premium Fret-Edge Treatment, and even an Ibanez Gig Bag!
