The Ibanez 2018 SR1825 Premium Electric Bass Guitar in Natural Low Gloss is an awesome 5-string bass guitar that any bassist from amateur to professional would be proud to own. Since its introduction, the SR series has produced outstanding basses that are great for any application. From the studio to the stage, the SR1825 can do it all, and does it in style.
Slender SR series body
The SR1825 body benefits from a slim depth that is combined with ergonomically designed curves to maximise playing comfort. However you choose to play, seated or standing, wearing it high and swinging it low, the SR1825 sits snugly every time for a delightfully familiar feel.
The back is built using mahogany, which creates the SR1825'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
For those making the step up from a 4-string model, the SR1825 is an accommodating neck to play on, allowing you to hone your skills without over-extending your fingers. As we've come to expect, the five-piece panga panga/purpleheart design is as robust as they come, and is even reinforced with KTS Titanium rods to seal the deal. You can rest assured that no matter aggressive your playing style, this beauty can withstand anything you through at it. Shaped to the Atlas-5 profile, the neck retains a very comfortable feel in the hand.
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 SR1825 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 SR1825 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 SR1825 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 SR1825 Premium Electric Bass Guitar in Natural Low Gloss is every bit as awesome as you'd expect it to be.
