The Ibanez SR1400E Premium 2018 Spot Run Bass Guitar in Natural finish is a mesmerising model that combines solid build quality with exquisite finishing touches. The result is a masterfully finished product that is perfect for any situation from the studio to the stage.
Cool SR body shape
The SR1400 Premium takes on the delightfully sleek SR body shape, which pairs a slender depth with a subtle arched top that tapers to razor thin bevelled edges. The carefully executed contours are designed to allow the body to rest snugly against you during performances. Whether you like to wear your bass high or low, the SR1400 feels just right no matter what.
The body is built using mahogany, which generates a stirring mid to low-end energy. Paired with this is striking figured maple top, which carries out the dual task of looking good whilst adding high-end clarity across each note to perfection.
Slim five-piece neck design
Joined to the body is a durable five-piece panga panga/purpleheart neck, which establishes a solid and stable playing feel with impressive sustain. The super slim Atlas-4 neck profile allows your fretting hand to sail along with ease. Paired with the neck is a luxurious panga panga fingerboard, which accentuates low and mid-range punchiness with a swift attack across the high frequencies. The fingerboard has been afforded the premium fret edge treatment to enhance playing comfort, giving you the freedom to scale the 24 frets with ease.
The SR1400 Premium Spot Run is home to a pair of Nordstrand "Big Single" pickups, which packs a mighty amount of power into a single-coil. The rich tonal depths of the mahogany are translated smoothly, whilst the crispness of the maple shines through. Controls consist of Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ, EQ bypass, and a 3-way midfrequency switch (250 Hz, 450 Hz and 700 Hz). The treble-tone control knob can be transformed into passive tone control when the bypass switch is activated allowing you to adjust the output.
Ibanez have fitted a Mono-Rail V bridge to the lower bout of the body, an excellent piece of kit that ensures perfect string isolation on the SR1400 bass. The bridge has been securely locked down to provide maximum vibration transfer with very little to no interference. Other great hardware appointments include reliable Gotoh machine heads for ultimate tuning accuracy, while a Black Tusq XL nut works well to maintain tuning integrity.
