Tremendous Bass Value

What a beauty - and tonal monster. The Ibanez SR1605ENTF electric bass guitar proves that striking looks and timeless bass tone don't have to cost a fortune. Indeed, the SR1605ENTF is an outstanding value. Start with that mahogany body, topped with Poplar Burl. 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 SR1605ENTF'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 SR1605ENTF is a great bass guitar.

Precision-made with great tonewoods

Ibanez makes some very fine instruments, including the SR1605ENTF five-string bass. Ibanez chose a mahogany body for exceptional low-end impact and rich sustain. And the five-piece wenge/bubinga neck with KTS Titanium rods 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 SR1605ENTF'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 SR1605ENTF 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.
