The Ibanez 2018 SR675 Electric Bass Guitar in Silver Wave Black Flat is a 5-string bass that can traverse any musical style with ease thanks to some clever onboard electronics. Not only that but it is as solid and reliable as they come, and features an understated finish that belies the power within. If you're taking the step up from a 4-string to your first extended range model - or even if you're a seasoned pro -, you'll love the way the SR675 plays.
Comfortable SR body
The SR675 benefits from the SR series body profile, a lightweight and comfortable design that is a true delight to perform with. The slender body depth features a slightly arched top that deftly gives way to bevelled edges, which partner beautifully to establish a snug feel against your body. The deep double-cutaway body profile makes it incredibly easy to access the neck in its entirety, perfect for performing some intricate fingerboard gymnastics.
The body is constructed using mahogany, a tonewood that is noted for its enviable warmth with a weighty mid-range punch. The mahogany is paired with an ash top, which is finished in sliver wave black flat, allowing the natural grain of the wood to shine through.
Paired with the body is a solid five-piece jatoba and walnut neck, which has been given an extended neck joint to ensure easier access to the upper frets. Shaped to the SR5 profile, the neck is designed to make it as comfortable as possible, even with the additional string. Married to the neck is a jatoba fingerboard, which is home to 24 medium-frets that are decorated with abalone oval position inlays to guide your way in style.
Bartolini BH-2 pickups
The Ibanez SR675 is equipped with a pair of Bartolini BH-2 pickups, one in the neck position, and one in the bridge. The BH-2s translate the warmth of the tonewoods beautifully, whilst retaining a crisp clarity across every note to capture the subtle nuances of your performance faithfully.
The SR675 is fitted with Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-Band EQ, which allows you to tailor your output to suit any musical style. The 3-way Mid frequency switch narrows the tonal focus, allowing you to zero in on the exact sound that you're looking for, and take full advantage of the extended range afforded by the additional string.
Fitted to the body is the Accu-cast B505 bridge, which anchors each string securely whilst creating a seamless connection between the strings and body. Ibanez tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision, no matter how aggressively you attack the strings.
The Ibanez 2018 SR675 electric bass is perfect for bassists of all skill levels and abilities who want an affordable model that is as versatile as they are.
