The Ibanez 2018 SR1820 Premium Electric Bass Guitar in Natural Low Gloss is a beautiful instrument that would make a welcome addition to any bassist's arsenal. Continuing along the path set out by previous SR series models, the SR1820 combines exquisite appointments with peerless craftsmanship to produce an outstanding bass. Whether you're recording in the studio, performing on stage, or simply playing for fun at home, the SR1820 is the ideal partner to accompany you anywhere, at any time.
Shapely SR series body
The body is shaped to the elegant SR series profile, which combines a slimline depth with curvaceous lines to establish a figure-hugging feel. Whether you play seated or standing, with the bass high or low, you are guaranteed ready access to every inch of the body and neck.
The back is built using mahogany, which creates the SR1820's rich mid-range tonal foundation. Combined with this is a flamed maple/walnut top that ensures highs are articulate and sing sweetly to prevent any muddiness from blemishing the tone. The natural low gloss finish emphasises the natural grain of the tonewoods to create a sophisticated visual aesthetic.
Comfortable neck profile
Joined to the body is a five-piece panga panga/purpleheart neck that is reinforced with KTS Titanium rods to maximise rigidity and strength. You can rest assured that no matter aggressive your playing style, this beauty can withstand the most ferocious of battles. Shaped to the Atlas-4 profile, the neck sits sweetly in the hand and extends without becoming cumbersome.
Married to the neck is a medium-fretted panga panga fingerboard with abalone oval inlays to guide your way. Enhanced by premium fret edge treatment, transitions between frets couldn't feel smoother. Thanks to the deep double-cutaway body profile, each and every fret is within comfortable touching distance.
The SR1820 is home to Ibanez' mono-rail V bridge, which holds each string with steadfast precision to maintain a consistent playing feel whether you're picking, plucking or slapping. Gold finished Ibanez tuning machines uphold tuning integrity accurately, and everything comes together harmoniously to optimise intonation and sustain.
The Ibanez SR1820 Bass Guitar is equipped with a pair of Nordstrand "Big Single" pickups, which deliver powerful, well-rounded tones with exceptional clarity. Whatever style of music you wish to take on, from jazz to hard rock, these pups will gladly oblige by producing huge tones that will have you coming back for more.
Alongside the volume and balancer control, the SR1820 is equipped with Ibanez Custom Electronics' 3-Band EQ (with corresponding bypass switch), as well as a Mid-frequency select switch to give you ultimate tone-shaping control. In short, the Ibanez 2018 SR1820 Premium Electric Bass Guitar in Natural Low Gloss is every bit as awesome as you'd expect it to be.
