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 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 a 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.
