Rich resonance and warm tone in one feature-rich bass! The Ibanez Premium SR1605B boasts a 5-piece panga-panga/pupleheart neck for tonal clarity and sustain.

"Good sound and versatility"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The pickups sound great. The onboard electronics really bring a lot of useful tonal options and are easy to use. Good quality pots: totally soundless and smooth. Tuners hold well. Very comfortable weight for live performances; comfortable body shape for long rec sessions too. My other basses are a Marcus Miller J Bass and a modified Peavey Grind 6. I play live music and record regularly.
The mid frequency selector is very useful for live situations. It lets me easily weave my bass into the mix regardless of the venue.
The diverse tones available from the electronics is favorite feature. The build quality is immaculate and the woods are good.
Ease of Use
It's hard to make this bass sound bad.
I expect a very long life from this bass. Everything seems very durable.
It's a fair trade for the price. You can always spend less and get pretty much the same bass if you don't want the special wood and finish.
The Wow Factor
This bass is hot 'n sexy! I asked more than 20 women and a couple men which bass they preferred (just aesthetically) and all but one of them chose this bass.
Most of them.
