Known as one of the most proficient and prolific bass players in extreme music, Steve Di Giorgio's range extends out from heavy-thrash-death metal, progressing to the technical side of fusion and the fluid & funky field of jazz. While notably performing in Death and Testament, Steve has also established himself as an in-demand studio musician, as his technical and recognizable bass skills have been carved into over 50 albums in his 30 plus year career.

When looking for a reliable bass that could adapt to any gig, Steve has trusted his Ibanez BTB models to do the job. So naturally, when designing a new signature model, Steve leaned heavily on many of the key BTB features as the framework for this bass. The final result is the combination of Ibanez's modern innovations and Steve's decades of experience - the SDGB.


- 9pc Maple/Bubinga/Panga Panga neck provides superior note attack, tight lows and increased sustain
- Graphite reinforcement rods in the Neck provides massive sustain and excellent stability.
- Ebonol fretboard, a synthetic material which is made from layers of black paper and phenolic resin. An Ebonol fretboard provides tight and bright sound.
- Flamed Maple top / Ash / Okoume wing body displays a beautiful wood grain and delivers a pleasant brightness and rich sustain.
- Nordstrand Big Single pickups cram a meaty single coil into a soapbar-style pickup, producing a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, while still retaining the clarity read more that's characteristic of single coil pickups.
- Vari-mid 3-band EQ features a variable mid-frequency control which allows you to dial in an incredibly wide range of sounds.
- Gotoh machine heads provide superior precision, a smooth feel, and excellent tuning accuracy.
- The Mono-Rail V (MR5) Bridge 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.
