Crown jewel of the SR line, the SR Prestige is a source of immense pride for the Japanese master luthiers who build this bass. Top of the line components like the Mono-Rail IV bridge, which maximizes vibration of each individual string while isolating it from crosstalk, and Bartolini® Custom Pickups, are just the start of what makes this bass the pinnacle of the Soundgear experience.
Maple fingerboard with extra deep neck joint. 5pc Maple/Bubinga Prestige neck with KTS™ Titanium Reinforcement rods inside
The ash body is characterized by strong mid- and high-range tones and excellent sustain. Attack and response are also excellent.
"The US made pickups are hand made at our factory in California exclusively for Ibanez. Ibanez was the first to ask for much deeper tone from the neck pickup while retaining a bright tone for the bridge, unlike traditional designs that used approximately equal pickup tone. The pickups are dual coil designs in several soapbar shapes, some rounded top and some flat top. In all cases, the Neck pickup tone is very deep and the Bridge pickup tone is bright. This allows the widest tonal sweep from the Blend control. Enjoy the wide tonal range!" -Bill Bartolini-
The Power Curve III 3-band EQ was developed specifically for our SR Prestige line. The Mid Q control makes adjustment of the core of your bass - the mids - extremely simple, and the +/-12dB EQ variable range enables a more natural sounding bass tone. Equipped with an EQ On/Off switch that outputs directly from the Bartolini® pickup.
The Mono-Rail IV Bridge is the ultimate in string isolation for bass. Each saddle is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference. One screw controls the height of each saddle for easy adjustment.
Two Titanum Reinforcement Bars inside a 5 piece Wenge/Bubinga design adds up to an extraordinarily reliable neck.
