The SR-Series electric bass guitar has been a favourite of gigging musicians since its introduction in 1987. Used by players across a huge range of different musical genres, the Ibanez SR800 Electric Bass Guitar combines excellent playability, gorgeous tones and a huge level of EQ adjustment to sculpt your sound. It is a truly superb model that deserves its highly respected status amongst professional bassists.
Slender looks, premium comfort
The slender profile of the SR800 makes it a dream to play. The contoured design has been carefully balanced to ensure that anyone can wield it with ease. The body is a beautiful combination of tonewoods, with a solid mahogany back that provides a warm and resounding low-end clout. A delightful poplar burl top, offering a brightness that cuts through the thick lows, compliments the mahogany.
Superb Neck Design
Fitted to the body is a 5-piece jatoba and bubinga neck, perfectly shaped to enable a fast-playing feel. The neck is married to a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard is home to 24 medium frets set across a 34" scale length. Thanks to the deep double-cutaways, each and every fret is readily accessible for seamless transitions across each fret. Abalone oval position inlays guide your way along the fretboard in style, enhancing the professional aesthetic set out by the model.
Versatile Bartolini Pickups
The SR800 is fitted with Bartolini MK1-4 neck and bridge pickups, an exquisite pairing that allows the natural timbre of the tonewoods to shine in all their glory. At your fingertips are an array of controls - including a 3-band EQ - that allow you to craft and shape your tone to suit any style of music. This makes the SR800 an incredibly versatile bass for both session players and live performers alike.
Fit and Finish
As you would expect from a guitar building giant such as Ibanez, the SR800 is built to be put through its paces. It is the perfect playing partner for both amateurs and professionals who need a reliable workhorse that'll enable them to play for hours on end.
