A Powerful 4-string Soundgear Bass

The Ibanez SR800 4-string electric bass's thin 5-piece jatoba and bubinga neck is one of the fastest necks in its class. You won't believe how fluidly this neck plays, and how effortlessly you can access the upper frets. The mahogany body with burl poplar top is comfortable for hours of playing and adds a mid-focused character to the bass's tone. And the Ibanez SR800's Bartolini pickups and Ibanez MK-1 3-band EQ will dial in earthshaking lows and crystal-clear highs easily. The SR800 is a beautiful 4-string with a ton of sonic firepower.

Built for tone and comfort

The Soundgear series from Ibanez offers players a sleek alternative to many popular basses on the market today. The SR800's contoured mahogany body with poplar burl top provides a warm, woody tone that accentuates the instrument's low end. Its thin construction and rounded profile help the bass hug the curves of your body for exceptional comfort. It also keeps the SR800 lightweight to protect your shoulder from undo strain throughout a performance.

Fast neck for nimble runs

The Ibanez SR800 boasts an effortlessly playable 5-piece jatoba and bubinga neck. The neck's thin and narrow contour is a favorite among many bassists, especially here at Sweetwater. Its 5-piece construction is very stable under environmental stresses. And the abalone inlays on the rosewood fingerboard pairs beautifully with the neck woods and poplar/mahogany body to complete the picture. And the body's cutaways are deep enough to offer great upper-fret access.

Flexible Bartolini electronics

Thanks to the Bartolini MK-1 pickups and Ibanez EQB-IIIS 3-band EQ, there are an incredibly wide range of tones available in this 4-string bass. Soloing the neck pickup with a bit of a bass boost is wonderful for reggae. Just scoop the mids for a very modern slap tone. Or grab a pick, and this system will easily elicit a great hard rock drive. The SR800 is great for players who find themselves hopping from genre to genre, or who just want to take total control of their sound.

Nice Bass for the $

I've had this bass for a couple months now and I'm still pretty impressed with its playability and ability to get almost any tone. I'm a long time player of Fender American Jazz and P basses, but there is a lot more tones available on this bass, and it weighs in like a feather. My one complaint that keeps it from a 5 star rating is the knobs and switch should be gold metal like the bridge and tuners. I will be making that change soon because the cheap plastic knobs got to go! All in all this is an awesome bass for the $.
