Special Order

A Premium 6-string Playing Experience

The Ibanez SR5006 6-string electric bass guitar brings a premium performer to the SR Prestige Series lineup! In addition to its well-balanced mahogany body (sandwiched between a wenge top and back), the SR5006 includes a 5-piece wenge/bubinga Atlas-6 HP neck (topped with a wenge fingerboard) that's as fast as it is comfortable. Abalone and pearl appointments add a touch of elegance. This bass's pair of Bartolini Custom pickups provide stellar tone for all kinds of styles, and you can get the most out of them with the Power Curve 3-band EQ (with a bypass switch) built into the Ibanez SR5006.

Ibanez SR5006 6-string Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Mono-Rail IV bridge enhances definition
  • Precision-made with great tonewoods
  • Great tone from Bartolini pickups and 3-band EQ
Mono-Rail IV bridge enhances definition

At Ibanez, there's genius in the details. Like the SR5006's 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.

Precision-made with great tonewoods

Ibanez makes some very fine instruments, and the SR5006 bass is no exception. Ibanez chose a mahogany body for exceptional low-end impact and rich sustain. It's sandwiched between layers of wenge, a striking look that also enhances your tone. And the five-piece wenge/bubinga through 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 Bartolini pickups and 3-band EQ

Ibanez SR5006 basses come out of the factory with Bartolini pickups and preamps installed. The humbucking Bartolini Custom pickups serve up a warm tone with superior dynamic range, giving you a punchy sound that can be shaped for a variety of styles. A 3-band EQ lets you dial in the perfect sound you have been looking for. It doesn't matter what style of music you play, the Ibanez SR5006 is ready for the gig.

Ibanez SR5006 6-string Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • Smooth-playing bass guitar with exceptional tonal flexibility
  • Atlas-6 HP neck plays fast, with a multi-layer design for maximum rigidity and long-term reliability
  • Exceptional note definition thanks to the Mono-Rail IV bridge
  • Fat tone from Bartolini Custom pickups, with powerful tone shaping with the 3-band EQ
  • Hardshell case included
Create the bass tone you've always wanted with the Ibanez SR5006!

Ibanez SR5006 Prestige

Oh my goodness, what a bass.I am a seasoned player, I've been playing for many years and I have come across all the boutique basses you can imagine. I currently own Sadowsky's and Lull's, Wyn's and MTD's so I have a very good reference point to compare to.This instrument is still expensive but it cost a FRACTION of what all these other botique basses cost and the quality is just is good. Instrument feels solid, craftsmenship is top notch and the tone on this baby is crystal clear thanks to the custom Barts.I am so impressed with this instrument, so easy to play with the 16.5mm spacing especially for a 6 string.The bass came perfectly set up and ready to go.I will agree that the bass is SLIGHTLY low output but that is by no means an issue for me personally.That's what the volume knob on your amp is for.Great bass, definitely recommend.

Excellent Service

I ordered an Ibanez SR5006EOL bass from Sweetwater…what a bass! I mean, really – what a bass!! It’s the best bass I ever saw or played. And it sounds excellent. If purchasing this bass, keep in mind that it has a low powered EQ system, not a juiced up preamp. There’s a big difference, especially if you’re used to basses with 9-18v preamps. This bass isn’t about power, it’s about tweaking in quality sound. If you need the big umphfff, buy a high-wattage amp. The service rep was excellent (still is), available anytime I call. He also called me a few times to make sure everything was great on my end. I never experienced customer service of this level. Excellent. Sweetwater knocked the ball out of the park. Going, going, gone!
