Ibanez SR655E Electric Bass, 5-String

For 30 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. As its popularity has expanded, the iconic series continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body and perfectly matched electronics.

The Ibanez SR655E features an Ash body which offers superior tonal clarity and attack. The thin, sturdy, and stable Jatoba / Walnut neck offers superior playability when combined with the extended neck joint, making the upper frets easily accessible. This SR655E boasts the highly-respected Nordstrand CND pickups in a classic P / J combination. This is a versatile setup that is indispensable for the working musician. From the P-style pickup, a killer P tone: deep and wide with a ton of punch. The single-coil bridge J pickup delivers the classic J players sound. The flexibility of the preamp permits a massive modern sound that can accommodate everything from slap solos to slick R&B or raging metal. The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is equipped with a 3-way mid-frequency switch which enables precise tonal control (250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz) and an EQ bypass switch for passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.

The B500 Bridge has adjustable saddles for string spacing adjustments, answering every bassist's individual string spacing demands, no matter what playing style. The saddles can be adjusted + / -1.5mm. The neck end adjustment allows you to tweak the neck easily. The SR Series continues to satisfy the vast needs of bass players, exciting them with the SR's smooth and fast neck, lightweight body and perfectly matched electronics.

Overall: I've had several basses, this one is one of my favorite sounding basses. At this price point, you get an amazing hardware quality, great pickups, solid bridge, very comfortable to play, and variations of tonality without losing power. Had a setup first for the action and intonation, which needs to be done either way, nothing else was flawed. It looks gorgeous and elegant, just be careful to not hit it with something, it is a delicate body. One last note, this might seem as a step up from the 500 series, but in my honest opinion, it just depends on your choice for Bartolini or Nordstrand pups. I highly recommend this product for any versatile musician whether you keep this as your main, or part of your arsenal.
Style of Music: Electronic, Fusion, Funk, Jazz, Rock/Metal, and Experimental.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: I manufacture boutique bass cabinets, and I own many different basses, MM sting ray5, Sire V7, Fender Jazz and P basses just to name a few, and this is the easiest to play by far. It is lightweight, has a lightning fast neck and the setup is accurate and precise right out of the box. The Nordstrand PJ pickup are simply outstanding. I play all styles of music, from Sinatra to Metallica, and they deliver whatever I need. I have basses that cost 3 times as much and this is my go to instrument. Buy this bass and I promise, you won't be sorry.
Style of Music: All styles, from smooth jazz, finger funk, metal and slap
