What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Mahogany body with ovangkol top Resonant and refined tone with excellent sustain
Nordstrand Big Single pickups Crisp and clear bass tone
EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ Bypassable EQ with midrange frequency notch
Mono-Rail IV bridge Allows strings to vibrate fully, no interference
With six-string range and tons of tonal tweaking options, the Ibanez SR1206E is ready for almost any stage. Player-friendly features like the Mono-Rail IV bridge only add to this bass's gig-ready aesthetic.

An Exotic Top to Set the Stage for Tone

Crafted in Ibanez's Premium facility in Indonesia, the SR1206E combines a mahogany body for naturally warm sound with an ovangkol top. An African tonewood, ovangkol has similar properties to rosewood, and delivers full midrange with a bright treble reminiscent of some maple tops. The thin body has slight sculpting to improve playing comfort, and a deep cutaway to allow you to experience the wide range of notes available.

Big Single Pickups Bring Big Sound

Ibanez loaded the SR1206E with two American-made Nordstrand Big Single pickups. These single-coil pickups are paired with an EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ, giving you a huge tonal palette to work with. Dial in your dream bass tone, from snarling treble that cuts through the mix to warm and mellow jazz rhythm sounds. Flicking the mid-frequency switch allows you to instantly change the midrange presence in your sound, and the EQ bypass switch will give you a tonally neutral sound.

Premium Appointments Enhance Experience

As a member of Ibanez's Premium line, the SR1206E features several components designed to give players the experience of a professional player's instrument. The 5-piece wenge/bubinga neck is wide enough to fit all eight strings, but sculpted thin for playing comfort. The neck is reinforced with KTS titanium rods to ensure any adjustments you make are retained. The Mono-Rail IV bridge features six independently secured saddles for each string to promote maximum resonance and reduce interference between strings.

Features:

- Mahogany body
- Ovangkol top
- 6-string design
- 5-piece wenge/bubinga neck
- Rosewood fretboard
- Nordstrand Big Single active single coil pickups in bridge and neck positions
- EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ
- Pickup blend knob
- Volume knob
- Mid frequency switch
- EQ bypass switch for instant neutral tone
- Mono Rail IV bridge
- Gig bag included

Whether you like aggressive slap lines or keeping the beat steady from the backline, the Ibanez SR1206E is a six-string engine to take your low-end tone anywhere it needs to go.

Product Description

The SR1206E Premium electric bass is the Ibanez bass made for the working pro. Building on many of the Prestige's high-end appointments, this SR is crafted by their Premium facility in Indonesia.

Super-smooth hand crimped frets, built-in-the-USA Nordstrand "Big Single" pickups, and the Mono-Rail IV bridge are just some of the features that set this instrument in a class far exceeding its reasonable price.

The 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.
