If you've been saving up for a pro level 6-string bass, we've got good news: you don't have to wait anymore. Professional players and gear reviewers alike have been singing the praises of the SR Premium series since its introduction. Crafted in the Ibanez Premium facility in Indonesia, the SR1806E shares many of the high-end appointments of the much respected Prestige line. This extraordinary attention to detail manifests itself in features like the super-smooth hand crimped frets, and the Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge, an ingeniously designed unit that kills off unwanted sympathetic vibrations while isolating and optimizing the vibration of the plucked string.
Atop the SR1806E's Mahogany body is an exhibition of excellence in woodcraft. Inside the Rosewood "wings," a layer of Walnut emerges, complemented by center strips of flamed Maple and Wenge. The instrument has a silky, vintage, flat natural finish that brings out the quality of the wood, and the smooth, solid, easy playing feeling of a five-piece Wenge/Bubinga neck. Abalone fretboard inlays complete the visual statement.
In spite of this impressive hit list of exotic materials, this 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 EQB IIISC 3-Band EQ, with EQ bypass and mid-frequency switch, will get there fast.
