Brand new to the Premium SR series of Ibanez bass guitars is the SR1306. Built to high specifications with a superb mix of choice tonewood and hardware, this 6 string bass guitar has it all. Unlike the standard 4 string bass, this has two additional strings right at your fingertips to allow you to increase your playing range and experiment with a wider range of tones. With a Natural Flat finish it is instantly eye-catching, and once you begin to play you won’t want to put it down.
TRINITY OF TONEWOOD
Like its siblings in the 4 and 5 string versions of these Premium SR bass guitars, the SR1306 is constructed using solid ash and walnut for the top, and mahogany for the body. The trio work together magnificently to give you a range of bright highs and fat lows, all with plenty of depth and warmth contributed naturally by the mahogany. This also gives the SR1306 an aesthetically pleasing appearance and timbre.
Firmly fitted to the body is a sumptuous 5-piece wenge / bubinga neck with a scale length of 34 inches and a 400mm radius. Married to this neck also is a rosewood fingerboard with 24 medium-size frets. To ensure that it feels ultimately comfortable to play, Ibanez have given the neck Premium Fret Edge treatment which gives it a more rounded contour, thus having a smoother feel in your hand with enhanced grip. Avalone oval dots decorate the frets to guide you from one to the next with confidence.
NORDSTRAND “BIG SINGLE” 6 PICKUPS
Ibanez have chosen Nordstrand “Big Single” 6 pickups to sit at the neck and bridge positions. These are single coil bass pickups which provide you with enormously aggressive tones, ideal for a rock or metal guitarist. These pickups use the same magnets as the fat stack to give you plenty of volume.
The SR1306 is equipped with the Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ with Eqbypass switch, and a 3-way Mid frequency switch to shape your sound.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The SR1306 is fitted with a Graph Tech Black Tusq XL nut and a new Mono-rail V bridge which prolongs sustain and extends bass intonation.
Gotoh machine heads fit securely to the headstock to uphold tuning precision, and the gold hardware offers a striking contrast against the natural appearance of the wood.
The Ibanez SR1305 Premium SR Bass Guitar in Natural Flat is a wonderful bass guitar with a myriad of high quality features. Ibanez supply a soft gig bag too to keep it protected on the road.
