Ibanez is now proud to introduce the latest chapter of the ongoing SR story, the SR “Cerro”. The first SR to feature a single-cut body design. The exotic poplar burl top with mahogany wings and Purpleheart fretboard truly emphasize the beauty and the rich tonal character of this bass. The SR5 5pc Maple/Purpleheart neck-thru is strong and stable, and its single-cut construction reinforces the neck even more. The beautifully curved back side of the body and lower deep cutaway promises comfortable playability, even at the upper frets. 18mm string spacing is favorable for many playing styles, especially slap bass. The new Mono-rail V allows for a wider intonation adjustment range and each isolated bridge are securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference. The Bartolini MK1 Pickups are split-coil designed and provide a very wide frequency range and enhanced definition for maximum accuracy. The Neck and Bridge pickups have equal response, like traditional single coil pickups, but without the hum and noise. The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band eq with an EQ bypass switch & mid frequency switch allow for precise tonal control. When the EQ is bypassed, the treble control now becomes a global tone control for the passive circuit. Don’t miss your chance to play the latest chapter in SR history, the SR “Cerro”!
