Overview

For 25 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. As its popularity has expanded, the iconic series continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body and perfectly matched electronics.

The SR655 is a handsome 5-string bass designed with the working musician in mind. At the heart of this bass is an Ash body, chosen for its bright, articulate tone and long sustain. The SR655 sports a 5-pc Jatoba/Bubinga SR5 neck and a Rosewood fretboard, embedded with elegant Abalone oval inlays. An Accu-cast B305 bridge provides excellent string vibration transfer and precise intonation.

For electronics, the SR655 features Nordstrand CND pickups in a classic P/J combination, a versatile setup almost indispensable for the working musician. Specifically designed for Ibanez, these passive pickups deliver a very present tone that easily punches through any mix. Equalization controls include a 3-band Active EQ with a bypass switch for precise tone management.

    Comments about Ibanez SR655 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    Been playing for years and own a few older Ibanez insts - mix of Korea and Japan production. Wanted to try one of these SR655 numbersso swung by my local GC. Plugged it in to a very nice amp and had at it. Nordstrand pups sounded great, the bass played fine and I was about to break out the credit card. Then I noticed that the fretboard had a lateral crack in it. So i really checked out the whole thing. Pickup routes were rough, splintery, and I could easily get my credit card into the space between the body and neck. Neck screws looked like they had been shot in at an angle with a screw gun. Last straw was the glop of finish on the side of the fretboard. On a good day, this might be a factory second. Too bad, nice materials, great pups, electronics seemed great too. This thing was obviously slapped together by someone who hated their job. Ibanez might want to send some QA/QC peeps to the Indonesian Cort factory that makes their stuff.

    Comments about Ibanez SR655 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    I got this Bass in an even trade at GC. Got to love that about them! I played it there for 2 weeks before deciding to get it. It was a winner from day 1 but I was used to 19mm, 20 fret basses and wanted to make sure I could readjust to 16.5mm. Not an issue, due to the nice, slim neck. I was looking for a Reverse PJ and compared this one to the others in the store, along with normal PJ Basses and it blew them all away. I don't even like Ash Basses but I like this one. They used a nice, light weight piece for mine that resonates perfectly with the neck wood. It really sounds like a mix between the Warwick and jazz Basses I've owned. The reverse P makes this the tightest low B since my Thumb bass. The blend between the P and J pickups is better than most Basses, giving this Bass amazing versatility.
