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.

Comments about Ibanez SR655 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

I have no cons about this bass. I tried one out in the store and played around on a TC Electronic bass amp (also great products) and the tone and feel of this bass blew me away. I own one now and the tones out of this bass are unlimited. Especially with the option to flip a switch and make it passive or active. Highly recommended bass. Even the set up out of the box wasn't terrible and I adjust every instrument I purchase right out of the box.

      Comments about Ibanez SR655 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

      I purchased this bass for the pick-ups. I love Nordstrand pups. these are not a disappointment. The sound is clear, bright, full and strong. I can easily get a pure "P" or "J" sound. then I kicked in the EQ, and BOOM, I boosted the bottom and mids and this puppy sang. The neck is very fast and smooth. The frets are clean and no fret buzz. Mine is very light but rich in tone. I was very surprised by the sustain I got out of this bass out of the box. I had a slight buzz out of the tone pot, after I removed the knob, I tightened the pot and the buzz was gone. (this is why I gave it a 4 not a 5)
      As a musician I highly recommend this bass if you are looking for a tight, full bass that is a player.
