The SR Premium is the Ibanez bass made for the working pro. Building on many of the Prestige's high-end appointments, this SR is crafted by our Premium facility in Indonesia. Super-smooth hand crimped frets, built-in-the-USA Nordstrand™ "Big Single" pickups, and the Mono-Rail IV bridge are just some of the features that set this instrument in a class far exceeding its reasonable price.
Premium Fret Edge Treatment The premium fret edges are processed to be specially rounded for smooth play and comfortable neck grip. Body Lamination Ovankol top lamination gives the bass a premium feel along with a strong presence. Nordstrand™ Pickups Nordstrand™ "Big Single" crams as meaty a single coil as can fit in a soapbar style pickup, producing a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, while still retaining the clarity that's characteristic of single coil pickups.
EQB-IIISC The EQBIIISC is a customized 3-band EQ and a dedicated preamp for Nordstrand™ pickups for further pure and wider frequency response. This preamp system is equipped with an EQ bypass switch and a mid-frequency select switch(250Hz or 600Hz).
