The SR655 is the new 5 string bass from the Ibanez SR standard line. With plenty of sound attack thanks to the excellent materials, build quality and onboard electronics, the SR655 enables you to further explore your playing ability thanks to the additional bass string.
Ibanez have selected a stunning ash tonewood to construct the entire body of the SR655. Ash contributes to the bass guitar's rich, full-bodied tone, allowing the sound to ring out with total clarity. The body has a double cutaway shape which makes it easier to reach every fret on the neck. The body comes in an eye-catching Antique Brown Stained finish complete with black matte hardware.
For a sturdy, smooth feel, Ibanez have selected 5-piece Jatoba and Bubinga to craft the SR5-style neck. The neck has a comfortable, thin profile to facilitate a faster playing technique, while the extended neck joint enhances the overall playing feel entirely. Topping the neck is a rosewood fingerboard which hosts 24 medium frets decorated with abalone oval inlays.
In the neck position Ibanez have employed a Nordstrand CND P pickup accompanied by a Nordstrand CND J pickup in the bridge position. This classic P/J pickup duo offers a huge range of versatile tones, packed with a punch while the J pickup brings a more subtle single-coil edge. Controls include Ibanez Custom Electronics with a 3-band EQ and EQ bypass switch, providing you with an incredible level of precise tone control, including the option to choose passive-only operation with the treble control pot.
To maintain a firm connection between the strings and body while ensuring the ideal amount of string spacing, an Accu-cast B305 bridge is fitted to the lower bout of the body. The headstock is fitted with dependable tuning machines in a black matte finish.
Equipped with high quality appointments and onboard electronics, the SR655 5 String Bass truly is a first-rate instrument by Ibanez.
