A surprisingly lightweight bass with a thick sonic character.

The Ibanez SR Premium series has been garnering the praises of professional players and gear reviewers alike since its introduction. Developed by the Ibanez Premium luthiers, the SR1605B series shares many of the high-end appointments as the much-respected Prestige line.

The extraordinary attention to detail that went into developing the SR1605B manifests itself in features such as super-smooth, hand-crimped frets and the Mono-rail 5S bridge, which enables a wider intonation adjustment range. Each isolated saddle is securely locked to the body for maximum vibration transfer with minimal sympathetic string interference.

The primary feature of the new bridge is the saddles, which can be adjusted for various string spacing. The bridge was developed in an effort to meet the needs of various players who enjoy different string spacing. The saddles can be easily adjusted to widen or tighten the string spacing by + / -1.5mm. 

The SR1605B’s African mahogany body is combined with an elegant poplar burl top to create a solid, well-balanced tone. The 5-piece Atlas neck consists of alternating layers of panga panga and purpleheart, providing a striking visual detail and neck stability for years to come. 

Aside from its exotic materials, the Ibanez Premium bass stays true to the original SR concept: being surprisingly light in weight—a noticeable contrast to the instrument’s thick sonic character. That big, bold, tonal personality is due largely to a pair of Nordstrand Big Single pickups—the kind well-acquainted with boutique instruments. 

No matter what musical texture is desired, the Ibanez Custom 3-band EQ, with EQ bypass and mid-frequency switch, will get there fast.
