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.

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!
