The Ibanez SR1200 electric bass guitar in vintage natural flat, benefits from the outstanding legacy set out by Ibanez’ SR Series over 25 years. Playing host to a range of premium features that can easily meet the needs of the most demanding of bassists, the SR1200 is a gig/studio-ready model that impresses every time. Pairing stunning good looks a magnificent energy, and deft versatility, this is a model that can do it all and do it in style.
The body of the SR1200 is crafted from mahogany and has a beautiful laminated ovangkol top. The tonewoods combine to produce a full sounding output that is bursting with energy, with a tonality that is rich and warm. The deep double-cutaway design of the body makes it easy to access the fingerboard in its entirety, whilst the bevelled edges ensure a comfortable and fluid playing feel.
The 5-piece neck is a composed of wenge and bubinga, with KTS titanium rods to ensure maximum strength and longevity, preventing warping of twisting for happening over time – especially important if you prefer to employ heavier string gauges. The neck is shaped to the Atlas-4 profile, which ensures a slender playing feel along its entire length. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 24 medium-frets that are adorned with abalone oval inlays. The fingerboard has been treated to the Ibanez premium fret edge treatment to improve transitions between each fret to guarantee as smooth a playing feel as possible.
Power of Nordstand
The power of the SR1200 is channelled through the two Nordstrand “big single” 4 pickups, one in the neck position, one in the bridge. These meaty single coil pickups produce a full-bodied, powerful and aggressive tonal texture while still retaining the clarity that is characteristic of single coil pickups. Working in perfect harmony with the Norstrand pickups is the EQB-IIISC customised 3-band EQ and dedicated preamp. This finely tuned system gives you wide yet pure frequency response. You remain totally in control with treble, mid and bass controls as well as a 2-way mid frequency switch, and balancer and volume controls.
Premium Hardware Appointments
As you’d expect with an Ibanez SR1200, only the finest of hardware will do. Premium appointments on this gorgeous model include: Black tusq XL nut saddles for exquisite sustain; a mono-rail IV bridge to secure strings and uphold intonation beautifully; and gold-coloured hardware to complement the stunning natural flat finish of the laminated ovangkol.
The Ibanez SR1200 is one of Ibanez's finest premium bass guitars. Loaded with features that make it sound as beautiful as it is to play, the SR1200 is the ultimate powerful yet elegant bass for the demanding player of today.
