Ibanez's SR4XXV limited edition electric bass is a Premium series bass at its core, but with a twist—an exotic Padauk top. This wood’s subtle reddish hue has long captivated fine woodworkers and revisits one of the most popular tops in SR history. Its sleek, comfortable mahogany body with padauk top makes it not only uniquely beautiful but also playable and enjoyable. Durable 5pc wenge/bubinga neck with titanium reinforcement rods means you can rock super hard and stay in tune longer. EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ, with Mid frequency switch and EQ bypass switch, gives you a world of possibilities in tone. Mono-Rail IV bridge with locking saddles allows each string to vibrate fully with no interference from the other strings. Nordstrand "Big Single" pickups produce a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, while still retaining the clarity of single coil. Made by Ibanez Premium factory. Includes special gig bag

Immediately upon picking this bass up before plucking even 1 string I could tell that this was a solid machine. Seemed to hold tuning like no other guitar I've ever played before. When I started actually playing the bass that is when the magic started... I fell in love... it was like that scene in the movies where the two lovers are running towards each other in slow motion. In all seriousness this is probably the most solid and beautiful sounding bass that I have ever played. It has TONS of control options for tone control. The individual saddles also make for great separate tone for each string and I don't have to worry too much about string vibration interference. Highly Recommend this bass
I have to say it's very well made. The main reason I bought it was that it was a limited edition 25th. It's nearly the same as the other Ibanez Premium models, except it has the Paduka top on it, and the control cover has 25th on it. It took me amonth to narrow down the listing of "wood" looking basses over $1,000. In the end this won out. Pro's: -Plays nice & balances nice when standing/strapped. -The controls will let you dial in your sound. -The neck is just unbelievably beautiful, the work on that alone, the frets are smooth on the sides, what a great job! -The pickups are active, and provide great tone. -The color of the wood and fit is nice, even though it's not a neck through. -25th limited edition. -solid gear from Ibanez Con's -Could have included more 25th edition material like a certificate etc...I feel Ibanez could have done better at that. -The control cover has screws on it which make it more tedius to replace the battery- not that big a deal since many basses are like this. -It could have come in a hard case. -The neck screws on the body could have been covered. -The manual could have been better at explaining the controls- print was small. Funny -maybe I'm just picky, none of that has anything to do with the way it plays :) When it's in your hands, you won't be able to stop your self, it feels so good.
