The Ibanez 2018 SR2605 Premium Electric Bass Guitar in Cerulean Blue Burst is the ideal 5-string model for bassists who are stepping up to an extended range model, as well as for more experienced performers. Whether you're a gigging professional, a session supremo, or simply someone who likes to chill at home and noodle along to their favourite artists, the SR2605 is a beautiful throughout.
Shapely SR series body
The SR2605 is shaped to the SR series body profile, which includes a shallow depth combined with sleek curves to establish a figure-hugging feel that is the stuff of dreams. The softly bevelled edges remove any obstacles from the path of your arms, allowing you to move with freedom. Whether you prefer to play in a seated or a standing position, wear your bass high or low, it always feels just right.
The body is built using mahogany, a tonewood that is favoured by many due to its generous mid to low-end energy that produces an enviable warmth. Paired with the mahogany is a poplar burl top that is finished is an eye-catching cerulean blue burst.
Smooth neck design
For the uninitiated when it comes to extended range models, making the leap to a 5-string need not be painful thanks to Ibanez' excellent neck design. Joined to the body is a 15-piece panga panga/maple/padauk/purpleheart/walnut neck that is reinforced with KTS Titanium rods to maximise stability. Whatever playing style you prefer; the neck maintains a solid feel so that you can perform on your terms. Shaped to the Atlas-5 profile, the neck sits sweetly in the hand, giving you the same feeling of comfort along its entire length.
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 to give you total mastery over the fingerboard.
The SR2605 is home to Ibanez' mono-rail V bridge, which provides an intuitive anchor point for each string to optimise intonation and sustain with effortlessly precision. Gold finished Ibanez tuning machines maintain tuning integrity accurately, and every appointment carries out its task dutifully to ensure stability throughout every performance.
The Ibanez SR2605 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 SR2605 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 SR2605 Premium Electric Bass Guitar in Cerulean Blue Burst is every bit as awesome as you'd expect it to be.
