The SR Series: Basses That Look as Great as They Sound
If you’re looking to purchase a superb bass guitar that will likely last you a lifetime, look no father than the SR Series from Ibanez. Available in four, five and six string versions, the SR500 basses combine classic good looks with outstanding tone woods. The five-piece wenge and bubinga necks are the thinnest and fastest in their class, while the dual Bartolini pickups and 3-band EQ deliver the kind of monster tone usually associated with custom built instruments that cost a small fortune!
This is unquestionably one of the best looking bass guitars around, but it’s also surprisingly light weight with a superbly balanced, comfort contoured body in a sweet brown mahogany finish. Most other manufacturers charge extra for such premium timbers, but like all Ibanez instruments, the SR506 is an exceptional value. This is a bass guitar that plays every bit as great as it looks!
The Ibanez SR506 sports one of the most playable necks in its class – even for a six-string! You start with a amazingly thin 5-piece jabota and bubinga neck that’s perfectly matched with the SR6 Prestige bolt-on design. The nut is also thinner than you’ll find on almost any production instrument. You won’t believe just how fast this neck plays and how effortlessly you can access the upper frets. The jatoba fingerboard offers a strong, tight sound and an attractive appearance with a long grain pattern and abalone oval inlays.
While the SR506 is unquestionably a great looking bass guitar that plays like a dream, you also want your bass to deliver earth shaking lows and crystal clear highs. That’s no problem thanks to the specially-designed Bartolini MK1-6 neck and bridge pickups which are matched to the Bartolini EQB-IIIS 3-band EQ circuitry. This combination allows you to quickly dial in your perfect bass sound regardless of your individual style and preference. From roadhouse blues to jazz fusion, the SR506 delivers the perfect sound every time!
