Finally, the feel of a high-end bass loaded into an awesomely reasonable priced package. The Ibanez SR806 sports Ibanez's signature "sleek and comfortable" playing feel. It's got a 5-piece jatoba and bubinga neck, a comfortably contoured mahogany body, and a dark rosewood fingerboard that provides contrast to the SR806's striking body color.

Versatile sound for any style

Ibanez basses are used in every style of music from metal to rock to jazz fusion. The versatile pickups and active electronics let you shape your tone to best fit the gig. From the scooped mids for slapping and popping to massive low-end rumble, the SR806 can do it all.

Packed with solid tone

Get ready for serious low-end juice. The Ibanez SR806 features two Bartolini MK1 humbucking pickups with ceramic magnets. To make the most out of the pickups - and to help you dial in the right bass tone - the SR806 is also loaded with a powerful 3-band equalization system. You've got control over your bass, mids, and treble, with a two-way selector switch that lets you choose what sonic range the mid control is working on. It's a great way to really nail a modern or classic sound, without much fiddling at all.

Reviews have helped me. Hopefully this will help you?

I listed the pros and cons below. When I decided to buy this bass I thought for just under $1,000 I would be getting a real player. Well as I mentioned below you can't access the whole neck because of the cut away blocks your hand. Why any company would build instruments like this? I'll never understand and it doesn't make any sense to me. Even though it is a 6 string it should be balanced properly and it isn't even close. You would think after all the years that Ibanez has been manufacturing basses they would have solved these basic design flaws by now. How a bass plays and how it sounds is more important to me than looks. So I wouldn't recommend this bass to anyone. If you're willing to sacrifice how it plays for looks? Then you'll be happy with this bass. Pros: Good looking bass. Very acceptable bass tone. Cons: The balance of this bass isn't very good. You can see "orange peel" in the high gloss. The cut away is too tight blocking your hand from accessing the whole neck. You can't even access the 24th fret on the C string. They designed the neck overly thin in portions of the neck causing unnecessary strain and fatigue. Tuning machines do not hold the bass in tune very well. Needs to be tuned constantly!!!
