OVERVIEW

A great bass at an even better price point, with high-caliber features and playability.

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.

Ergonomically Perfect!

By Reyne

Comments about Ibanez SR655 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

For those bass players with smaller hands, this bass is ergonomically perfect to move quickly within one hand position. The weight of the entire bass is perfect for as well. The bass offers a lot of tone varieties, which also fueled my purchase. The low B string is deep enough if you have any concerns or hesitations. Excellent piece of musical weaponry!

Plays & Sounds Good

Comments about Ibanez SR655 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

This guitar looks, plays, and sounds good. It's pretty awesome. The only complaint I have is with the slight bussing hum, that other reviewers have noticed, that comes in with active treble boost. I was able to notch most of it out with my amp's eq system, but the guitar shouldn't make any sound when all strings are muted with a hand.

        Comments about Ibanez SR655 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

        This bass has a lot of versatility. You can make it sound close to a P-bass or J-bass. It is not very heavy and feels very nice in any playing position. The neck is thing and easy to slide up and down on (with your hand). The only thing that I don't love about it is how close the strings are to each other. They are very close. This may be a problem if you have fat fingers like me.

            Comments about Ibanez SR655 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

            I'm a seasoned pro player, been at this all my life and still play 4-6 gigs (and more) week in and week out. I sing and play rhythm/lead guitar and keys, but consider myself primarily a bassist. I had sold my old Toby 5-string years back as I hadn't played a bass gig in several years after relocating "back home" to the Illiana after most of my life living/gigging in the deep south, then picked up an entry level Ibanez for a local classic rock gig. I needed an upgrade recently, as I had also taken up with a contemporary country band and now a power trio. Did a lot of research and settled on this model, very happy with it. The 655 has that slender Ibanez neck to fit my small hands, excellent balance and contour. and the active/passive PJ pickup combo is better for me than my Toby's Bartolini, a lot of variety especially in active mode. Gorgeous wood throughout, excellent quality craftsmanship (especially at this price point), no complaints about this fine instrument.
