For 30 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. With its continued popularity, Ibanez is constantly endeavoring 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.
The SR655 5-string was built to play. With an ultra-comfortable contour body and superior appointments like the familiar split/single pickup combination, the SR655 is the perfect combination of old-school features and modern, forward-looking design. The SR655 features an extended neck joint, which not only creates a unique look, but also makes it easier to access the higher frets. The Accu-cast B300 bridge affords precise intonation and delivers string-to-body vibration conductively.
The SR650’s Nordstrand CND pickups in a classic P/J combination offer a versatile setup almost indispensable for the working musician. It’s able to get a killer huge P tone from the P style pickup. Deep and wide with a ton of punch. Also, the single coil bridge pickup will do famous J players sound for days. Then, with the flexibility of the preamp, you can get a massive modern sound that will go from slappy deep R&B to raging metal. The SR650 also features Precision tonal control, allowing players to switch to passive-only operation. When the EQ bypasses activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
