Tear It Up on Ibanez's High-End Tone Machine!

Boutique-quality tonewoods, hot-rodded electronics, and huge, aggressive tone -- that's what you get with the 5-string Ibanez SR1205 Premium electric bass. The SR1205 treats your ears and eyes with USA Nordstrand Big Single pickups, EQB-IIISC three-band EQ, mid-frequency and EQ bypass switches, a Mono-Rail IV bridge with locking saddles, a five-piece wenge/bubinga neck with KTS Titanium Reinforcement rods, a rosewood fretboard with abalone oval inlays, an ovangkol-topped mahogany body, and posh gold hardware to top it off. Plus, this baddie's fifth string will give you more low end to shake your fans to their very core.

Attractive Ovangkol-Topped Mahogany Body

Resting comfortably against your front is your SR1205's rich ovangkol-topped mahogany body. An African cousin of rosewood, ovangkol adds a nice breadth of midrange to your playing, while its cool grain pattern exudes class. Meanwhile, the SR1205's mahogany body really brings out the middle and lower end tones of your notes. Together, these tonewoods deliver a very rich and dark color that you'll love through and through.

Slick Five-Piece Wenge/Bubinga Neck

The Ibanez SR1205's snug and comfy 5-piece wenge/bubinga neck adds a pleasant brightness and punch to your licks and grooves. Playability is the name of the game here, thanks to the SR1205's smooth rosewood fretboard with attractive abalone oval inlays and 24 medium frets with premium fret edge treatment. KTS Titanium reinforcement rods provide longer intonation and ultimate stability, so every note makes its way seamlessly from your axe's neck to its body in smooth and uninterrupted fashion.

Nordstrand "Big Single" 5 Neck and Bridge Pickups

A pair of Nordstrand "Big Single" 5 pickups do this bass sonic justice, taking in its full-bodied tone and projecting every inch with plenty of presence. With this pair of single-coils, you won't find any low end mud in your signal, no matter how low you go.

Three-band EQ and Bypass Switches

The tone controls on this baby will give you a lot of sound-shaping power. You have bass, mid, and treble EQ controls, as well as two bypass switches -- one for your EQ, and the other for your mid frequency settings. The sonic spectrum the SR1205 yields is virtually limitless.

Stable Mono-Rail IV Bridge with Locking Saddles

To hold your game down, the SR1205 boasts a Mono-Rail IV bridge with locking saddles. Your strings will hold intonation for longer periods, and your whole notes will resonate in lasting sustain, which is perfect for pauses or holds. You'll be able to keep your mind focused on your playing and not your intonation, thanks to the hardware on your Ibanez SR1205!

5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Ibanez goes high end!"
Sound: Ok kids, I never give 10s to anything because I always feel they can do better but this one is VERY freakin' close. At just over a grand, this bass has all the details that a boutique number might have, incl. Nordstrand pickups (shut up!!). Using an Ampeg Portaflex PF 500 head with an Avatar 2x10 cab at 4 ohms, and it is loud. My band commented on the richnesss right away. Great J-Bass style tone but fatter. Typical in that with both pickups dimed the sound thins out, but I slant it toward the neck pickup and it cranks. Ready to break out of the 'garage band' bass sounds? Here's your ticket. I'm an MTD lover but this bass has tone for days and is so-o-o easy to play on my middle-aged fingers (yeah I heard Cream on Top 40 radio in high school gym class) that I couldn't resist it. The neck is very even tonewise too, which the MTD Kingstons do not have. And, the EQ is very usable as opposed to being a tone killer. I hate active basses that have 1 usable setting. This one ain't that. I have to take issue with the input jack. Works better on the side like always, Ibanez. And for some reason, my Batt-O-Meter will not work with it. Probly need to look at the manual for that gadget. Great bass, don't buy it. I want mine to be the only one in town. :-) Feature: Nice gig bag included! Great preamp (see above.) Ease of Use: Wow, how simple! Turn it up and leave the tone knobs in detent. Quality: At this price point I am very impressed. Value: Really good value. The Wow Factor: Well yeah - when I saw it I was pretty excited. when I playe done, well...that was the kicker.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "I have Giged it Extensively"
Overall: I own it and have used it in many live situations. Small clubs in the French Quarter of New Orleans To the the many outdoor festivals we have here,and all I can say is this bass can Taylor on demand any sound you need or desire. It's loud and punchy but if you want bypass it. I play through a pair of Peavy SP4 cabs with a sp118 sub powered by Crown XTI 6200 on mains and Crown XLI 3500 on Sub. Pre Amp and EQ are my secret though! But AWSOME bass and worth every cent the neck is so thin SLICK and lightning fast. And for once you can really rip the upper frets like its a joke.But Honestly,no matter your style of music it can get the tone you need. And the strings are razor close with no buzz anywhere on the fretboard.Buy it...Only complaint mine came looking a little more "Orange" colored than brown that I expected from the pictures but its not that bad.
