The SR Premium is the Ibanez bass made for the working pro. Building on many of the Prestige's high-end appointments, this SR is crafted by the Ibanez Premium facility in Indonesia. Super-smooth hand crimped frets, built-in-the-USA Nordstrand "Big Single" pickups and the Mono-Rail IV bridge are just some of the features that set this instrument in a class far exceeding its reasonable price.
For over 25 years the SR range has given bass players a modern alternative, with the key principles of the range being a smooth, fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics. A rosewood & flamed maple top with walnut/mahogany back body lamination gives this bass a seriously premium feel. The fast-playing 5 piece wenge and bubinga bolt-on neck is complimented by the Ibanez premium fret treatment, with the fret edges specially rounded for smooth play and comfortable neck grip while Nordstrand™ "Big Single" pickups cram 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. Working in partnership the EQBIIISC is a customized 3-band EQ and a dedicated preamp for Nordstrand™ pickups for further pure and wider frequency response. This preamp system is equipped with an EQ bypass switch and a mid-frequency select switch(250Hz or 600Hz).
