Ibanez SR1820 Premium Bass, Natural Low Gloss - Overview by GAK
For 30 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. With its continued popularity, Ibanez is constantly endeavouring to answer the wider needs of a variety of players, at a variety of budgets. But no matter what the specs, the heart is the same-SR continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.
Featuring a mahogany body for rich lows and pushed mids, the Ibanez SR1820 is capped off with a beautiful walnut and flame maple top. Combined with a 5-piece purpleheart and panga panga neck with a panga panga fretboard, this Premium range bass from Ibanez is stunning both visually and sonically. The Atlas 5pc Panga Panga/Purpleheart neck provides tonal clarity, superior note attack and its slim grip shape permits superior playability.
Nordstrand™ "Big Single" crams as meaty a single coil as can fit in a soapbar style pickup, producing a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, while still retaining the clarity that's characteristic of single coil pickups.
Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/EQ bypass switch & Mid frequency switch
Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is our latest refinement on the concept of simple, straightforward, no-nonsense EQ control. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centred on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favourable bass tones. Precision tonal control, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypasses activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
Mono-rail V bridge
The Mono-rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
The Ibanez SR1820 also comes complete with the famous Ibanez Premium series rigid soft case to keep your work of art safe in transit.
