Sleek SR body shape
The SR655E has the smooth SR body shape with slim depth and an arched top that tapers out to bevelled edges. The contours are designed to allow maximum comfort whether sitting in the studio or standing on stage, allowing you to concentrate on your performance.
The body is made from ash, a tonewood that is highly resonant with an even and bright sound. With a quick attack and coherent dynamic range you'll find the transparent tone of this body plays well with those who wish to experiment with their tone as well as responding well to any style of play, whether you want to slap, pop, pick, pluck or tap.
Slim five-piece neck design
The SR5 5-piece jatoba/walnut neck is slim with a 305mm radius, making it an absolute joy to play and the jatoba fretboard allows for enhanced sustain and superior tonal quality. With an extended neck joint, you'll find comfortable access to all 24 medium sized frets.
The SR655E has two Nordstrand CND pickups for wide tone with bags of punch in a classic P and J formation. This iconic setup combined with an adaptable preamp gives you a huge contemporary sound with the flexibility to play any style, whether you need it for R&B groove or fast metal riffing.
The Ibanez Customer Electronics 3-band EQ has a 3-way mid-frequency switch which gives you pinpoint tonal control (250Hz, 450Hz and 750Hz) plus an EQ bypass switch for passive-only operation. When the bypass is activated the treble tone control know becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
The Accu-cast B505 bridge with 16.5mm string spacing ensures a seamless connection between the strings and body so that intonation is maintained accurately across the neck. The bridge allows for adjustment +/-1.5mm so you can tailor the string spacing to your own taste, no matter what your playing style.
