Shred like Sharlee D'Angelo with this 4-string fury from Ibanez
Check out the new Ibanez SDB2 electric bass. Any bass that takes the stage night after night with Arch Enemy has to take a brutal pounding without sacrificing tone. Made to Sharlee’s custom specs with powerful PFR pickups and Iron Cross neck inlays, the Iceman-inspired SDB2 looks as sinister as it sounds.
Get the bass with brutal looks and sound to match. Order now!

Comments about Ibanez SDB2 Electric Bass:
I always wanted an Iceman Bass, dispite the reports of neck dive, poor positioning, and cheap feel of past models. The latest signature basses SDB are neck-through, white with black edge binding and cross inlay fretboard, which I saw as desireable along with my needs on stage to have a somewhat shocking, stand-out bass. This bass weighs over 11 pounds! Some might consider that a Con, but I think it can contribute to some good sound, given the right electronics and set-up. The factory set of strings are a standard BEAD set, of which I have tuned this bass to my personal standard. Factory set-up was good and low. I only had to give it a quarter tweek up at the bridge to keep it from fretting out. Workmanship is good and on par with some of my quality brand basses that I have. The electronics cause alot of distortion and needed to be cut back in order to get any clean sound. Wide open, this thing sound like it is a hornets nest! But hey, that can save you from having to get a fuzz box or OD....this bass sounds overdriven and some of you Metaloids will think it is the shizzle. I have strapped it up and have been playing it standing up, and getting used to it. Its feel is similar to other basses that lack a long top horn, sich as Explorer, T-Bird, etc. You just got to make some adjustments to how the bass sits on your body. You would think that this is a neck-dive candidate, but I never have that problem...I just dont get it. Bottom line- this will not be a studio bass or something that I would try to do a intricate bass solo on, but it will definitely be a stage bass rockin out. Made in Indonesia, FYI. I was never an Ibanez fan. This base is different though. It stands out and is the first thing you see on stage. Now if I can just dial in the sound that I need. Never thought I would have a bass with too rough of a sound, but here it is if you like that.
