One of the Premium models of the forward-thinking SR Series, the Ibanez SR1800-NTF is the combination of years of manufacturing excellence and high-quality materials, making a bass fit for any professional application be it studio recording and session work, or live performance.
A rosewood & flamed maple top, walnut centre and mahogany back are combined to make up the comfortable contours of the Ibanez SR1800 NTF’s body, whilst also contributing to the varied tonal palette of bass. The deep double-cutaway body profile guarantees easy access to the entire length of the fingerboard.
Slender Neck Profile
The body is joined by five-piece wenge/bubinga neck that brings it’s own collection of tones to the proceedings, along with being shaped to Ibanez’s Atlas-4 profile and being equipped with two titanium reinforcement bars, ensuring an extraordinarily stable construction.
A medium-fretted rosewood fingerboard with abalone oval inlays has topped the neck. A premium fret edge treatment has been applied to this, so that it is rounded, giving the Ibanez SR1800-NTF smoother playability and a more comfortable grip.
This leads to the Ibanez SR1800NTF’s Mono-Rail IV Bridge. Specially developed, this bridge ensures string isolation, with each saddle being separately secured to the body for uninterfered-with vibration transfer. Each saddle also has its own screw fixture that allows you to adjust the height of each without affecting those around it.
Bringing meaty single coil tones in a soap bar style, the Ibanez SR1800-NTF Bass Guitar is fitted with a pair of Nordstrand pickups. These offer up a strong, aggressive tone along with the clarity that single coils are noted for.
Alongside the volume and balancer control, and giving you full control over the pickups loaded into the Ibanez SR1800-NTF Bass Guitar, is a customized 3-band EQ with a dedicated preamp for the Nordstrand pickups, the EQB-IIISC. This consists of bypass and Mid-frequency select (250Hz or 600Hz) switches and Treble Boost/Cut, Mid Boost/Cut and Bass Boost/Cut control knobs.
