New to the Ibanez SR series is the SR870 Electric Bass Guitar in an extraordinary Deep Twilight Flat finish. Bringing together high-quality specs and components, the SR870 is ultimately comfortable to play and produces an almighty range of tones with gusto. Ibanez have employed an exotic choice of tonewood combined with excellent onboard electronics to enhance your sound.
The guitars that have been brought out in the new range of SRs such as the SR870 have been given an exotic wood body that looks incredibly eye-catching, especially with the finish. The top is constructed using Flamed Maple/Walnut, known for its lightweight feel and is paired with an Okoume body which adds a rich warmth to the tone of the SR870.
A stunning SR4 5-piece Jatoba/Walnut neck is firmly fitted to the body via an extended neck joint which offers exceptional playability and easier reach to the upper frets. With a scale length of 34 inches and a thin profile, a faster playing feel is promoted. Aboard the 5-piece neck is a Jatoba fingerboard with 24 medium frets to enjoy. The frets are decorated with Abalone oval dot inlays to guide you from one to the next with confidence.
BARTOLINI BH2 PICKUPS
The SR870 is fitted with Bartolini BH2 pickups at the neck and bridge positions. Ibanez have employed this set of pickups as they offer fantastic sound definition across a wide range of diverse tones. The BH2 pickups also completely reduce any unwanted noise in the background, giving you an incredibly clear output.
Onboard controls feature on the SR870 including Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ and a 3-way mid-frequency switch. They also include independent Bass Boost / Cut, Middle Boost / Cut and Treble Boost / Cut control dials that all work together alongside the BH2 pickups to deliver the most dynamic tone.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
Ibanez have fitted an Accu-cast B500 bridge to the SR870 bass guitar as it is a solid construction yet is also easy to adjust should you wish. The bridge forms a strong connection between the strings and the body to provide great sustain and intonation.
Black matte hardware on the tuning machine heads at the headstock and the bridge complement the Deep Twilight Flat finish, while the machine heads perform wonderfully to uphold tuning integrity.
The Ibanez SR870 Electric Bass Guitar is a sumptuous model with a wide, diverse range of tones while boasting a striking, low gloss finish, perfect for any discerning bassist's arsenal.
