The SR-Series electric bass guitar has been a regular feature on the gigging circuit since its introduction in 1987, finding a home in many a player's arsenal. Whether it's been used for Jazz, Rock, Metal, or anything and everything between, the SR700 carries out its task dutifully, yielding a veritable tonal feast with immense versatility with regard to control. Not to mention that Ibanez have a worthy reputation for crafting some of the finest instruments in the business, and the SR700 benefits from a team who are relentless in their quest for perfection.
Slender SR Series Body
The slim profile of the SR700 makes it a dream to play. The contoured design is carefully balanced, with weight being distributed evenly across the neck and body with impeccable accuracy. Whether you're tall, short, young, old, a beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone can pickup and appreciate the perfectly proportioned dimensions of the SR700.
The body is a beautiful combination of tonewoods, with a solid mahogany back that provides a warm and resounding low-end clout. Paired with a delightful maple top that offers a brightness that cuts through the thick lows, this prevents the mahogany from overpowering the tonal character of the SR700.
Fast Playing SR Neck
Ibanez are renowned for their super neck design and construction. Fitted to the body is a 5-piece jatoba and bubinga neck, perfectly shaped to enable a fast-playing feel. The neck is married to a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard is home to 24 medium frets set across a 34" scale length. Thanks to the cutaway each and every fret is readily accessible. Abalone oval inlays guide your way along the fretboard.
The SR700 is fitted with Bartolini MK1-4 neck and bridge pickups, an exquisite pairing that allows the natural timbre of the tonewoods to shine in all their glory. At your fingertips is an array of controls - including a 3-band EQ - that allow you to craft and shape your tone to suit any style of music. This makes the SR700 an incredibly versatile bass for both session players and live performers alike.
As you would expect from a guitar building giant such as Ibanez, the SR700 is built to be put through its paces. It is the perfect playing partner for both amateurs and professionals who need a reliable workhorse that'll enable them to play for hours on end.
