The Premium SR1356B bass from Ibanez endeavors to answer the needs of a variety of players, at a variety of budgets with a fast neck, lightweight body and perfectly matched electronics. An Atlas 5-piece panga panga/Purpleheart neck provides a well-balanced note attack and tone with rich sustain while internal reinforcement rods increase stability. A panga panga fretboard produces tight lows and mids along with a sharp attack on the high end, and features medium-sized frets to enhance accuracy. Nordstrand ”Big Single” pickups cram a meaty single-coil into a soapbar-style pickup, producing a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, while still retaining the clarity that's characteristic of single-coil pickups. Featuring an MR5S bridge with adjustable saddles, the SR1356B also includes 3-band EQ and Gotoh machine heads, plus a protective gig bag.
