The SR Premium is the Ibanez bass made for the working pro. Building on many of the Prestige's high-end appointments, the SR is crafted at Ibanez's Premium facility in Indonesia. Super-smooth hand crimped frets, built-in-the-USA Nordstrand™ "Big Single" pickups, and the Mono-Rail V bridge are just some of the features that set this instrument in a class far exceeding its reasonable price.
The ash and walnut top gives the bass a premium feel along with a strong presence while the Nordstrand™ "Big Single" crams as meaty a single coil as can fit in a soapbar style pickup, producing a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, while still retaining the clarity that's characteristic of single coil pickups.
The premium fret edges are processed to be specially rounded for smooth play and comfortable neck grip.
The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ provides precision tonal control, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
The Mono-rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
