Product Description

For bassists who demand the best in feel, tone and looks, there is the Ibanez SR1605E Premium 5-String Electric Bass Guitar. This expertly crafted instrument features a tonewood compliment of a Poplar Burl top on a Mahogany body and an Atlas-5 5-piece Wenge/Bubinga neck for gorgeous looks and a fantastic foundation for great tone. The premium fret edges of the SR1605E are processed to be specially rounded for smooth play and comfortable neck grip.

Nordstrand Big Single pickups are extra meaty single coil 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. Ibanez also gives the bass an EQBIIISC 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).

Overall Rating
Great Bass
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Great quality! I replaced an American 5 string that was $400.00 more than the 1605 and everything on that other bass had to constantly be re-adjusted.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Totally impressed with the quality! Strap locks seem warranted, but I'll get past that.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
The 3band EQ's so easy and accurate.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It's very playable. the neck is fast and comfortable and it is very light. I played a gig with it the same day that it arrived. The action was a little low so it had a little fret buzz but the intonation was good. tone controls are really easy, much nicer than the push pull controls on my American.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The Nordstrands are ridiculous!!! After this it will be tough to get me to use any other pick up. The lows are warm and full, mids are nice and round not in your face, the highs cut through beautifully and it is consistant volume from low B to the G. Not the case on my American, espesially if you are using the active setting, which I never did but I love it on the 1605
How did the stain or paint job look?
This looks like a high end piece of furniture, but still sleek and has a nice rock guitar look. Classic and modern all rolled up into one stylish guitar
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
It is a $2500.00 bass that they sell for $1350.00 as opposed to my American that was more like a $700.00 bass that they sell for $1800.00
How was the action out of the box?
It was a little low and had some fret buzzz!!! Intonation was fine and the neck was straight!
