Tremendous Bass ValueWhat a beauty - and tonal monster. The Ibanez SR1206E electric bass guitar proves that striking looks and timeless bass tone don't have to cost a fortune. Indeed, the SR1206E is an outstanding value. Start with that mahogany body, topped with figured Ovangkol. Great looks. Then add in the smooth-playing 5-piece Wenge/Bubinga neck, decked out with a rosewood fingerboard and abalone oval inlays. This is one great-looking, great-playing bass. Still, the SR1206E's first priority is tone, and that's just what the two Nordstrand Big Single pickups deliver. And with the 3-band EQ, you'll have more than enough tonal and shaping power to hit the stage or studio with any band. Simply put, the Ibanez SR1206E is a great bass guitar.
Ibanez SR1206E 6-string Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
Precision-made with great tonewoods
Ibanez makes some very fine instruments, including the SR1206E six-string bass. Ibanez chose a mahogany body for exceptional low-end impact and rich sustain. And the five-piece wenge/bubinga SR6 neck doesn't just look great, it's incredibly strong to resist warping and twisting over the years.
Great tone from Nordstrand Big Single pickups
Whether you're playing slap-heavy funk, or warmly muted reggae tones, the SR1206E's pair of Nordstrand Big Single pickups have you covered. These pickups have a rich and solid character to them, with powerful sound-shaping potential from the onboard EQ-IIISC controls. You have control over boost/cut for bass, mid, and high frequencies, with a mid-frequency switch to fine-tune your midrange tone.
Mono-rail IV bridge enhances definition
The SR1206E packs the ultra-innovative Mono-rail IV bridge with locking saddles, which allows each string to fully vibrate without any interference with the other strings. That means that no matter how fast you play across the strings, each note will ring clear and true.

Ibanez SR1206E is a BEAST!!
by Gregory Brown from Gaeinsville, FLI literally cannot say enough great things about this bass. It is a tonal MONSTER! Its pretty much an SR506 on steroids! I actually upgraded from a 506 because it was stolen. But, instead of replacing... read more [+] it, I decided to bump up to the premium and it was worth every penny! This bass is one beautiful piece of wood man! From the 5pc wenge/ bubinga neck to the mahogany body with that killer ovangkol top to the gold hardware, this bass turns heads everywhere I play. And its not just its good looks either. This bass gets down. I play a lot of Gospel and R&B with a lil bit of Jazz and this bass covers me on every gig. These big single Nordstrands deliver and the EQ gives you a ton of versatility. This bass has plenty of low-end bark and great sustain. One of the biggest things I like about the 1206 is that it doesn't take a lot of adjusting to get a good slap tone out of this bass. Most of the time, I don't even adjust my EQ or I'll dial in a lil more highs, and I get the tone that I want every single time. If you're thinking about one of the basses, don't hesitate. It's the absolute best bass in its class for the ridiculously low price tag it has and its the finest bass I've ever played! Get it- you'll love it- you won't be sorry- I promise! IBANEZ SR's FOR LIFE!!! close [-]

Ibanez SR1206E 6 string vintage
by Barry irwin from orlandoWell...It certainly is a lot to rave about considering the price of the bass,ALSO not considering that.The pickups are great.They have a very wide range of sound.The neck actually feels very comfortab... read more [+]le to play.I like the mono rail bridge it cleans up the sound a bit with no "overhang" from other strings when you playing.The weight is just right for a Six er. Just the slightest bit neck heavy but also quite unnoticeable.Action is dead right.This bass can hold its own with any of my other 12 basses and that's saying a lot..Yet,to each his own.This is a great bass to play on some jazz or fusion gig,or where you would like to play some chords and have an extended range to solo or do chordal work.That's what I used a six for in the early 90's playing in a trio.I was able to play chords which filled out the sound quite a bit.Would I take this on a Motown gig?Probably not.A show gig?Maybe.I would have to extend my reading chops for that.My 5 string US Lackland has more punch and bottom end for a Broadway style show or Motown.(Lacklands which are basically a more modern version of Musicman/Fender really cover a lot of genders.)In the case of the Ibanez,I'm not sure if it's the pickups or the strings or just the bass,but it has a lighter sound yet well rounded and useable.I have not used this bass enough but from spending an afternoon these are my conclusions.Off course my wife had to remind me that this is bass number 13 not 12!They all different animals and have different voices.They speak there own language and I'm always happy to hear anyone of them in any appropriate conversation.The Ibanez 6 string is a great bass to have at any price.The Mike Pope Fodera has similar woods some new ideas ie pickups, neck preamp,Yet priced at over $12000.I drive a BMW not a Rolls Royce.
