Product Description

The Ibanez SR506 is a huge upgrade in this price range, complete with Bartolini MK1 pickups and 3-band EQ, and a fast walnut and jatoba neck. Since 1987, bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and the speed of the fastest neck available have made Soundgear standard equipment in every genre. As music evolves, so does the Soundgear concept. The SR500 family is one example of this evolution. The SR506 is a huge upgrade in playability and tone.

SR506 Series Features

  • Thinner necks with thinner nuts than traditional basses.
  • Sleek bodies that are lightweight, balanced and comfort contoured.
  • Active EQ's perfectly matched with the right choice of passive or active pickups.

Sleek, sexy and sonically versatile are the reasons Soundgears can be found in every kind of music from gospel to goth to garage rock. Bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and fastest neck available have made the Soundgear standard equipment in the most controlled studio environments and the most out-of-control live performances.

What is your opinion of this product?
I did plenty of research about this bass and found nothing negative about it; I decided to buy it and it exceeded my expectations. The sound is powerful and with plenty of eq choices. Well built, solid, and light weight, though it looks heavy. AMS easy payments, superb customer service and return policy make it possible to own this gem without sacrificing the wallet. Highly recommended.

THE TRAVELING BASS PLAYER's BESTFRIEND
I would undoubtedly consider this product to be well engineered and a very fine sound. Because it's so well crafted it is awesome in quality. Very Very dependable!!!!!!
I love the EQs and the Berhinger pickups on this bass guitar. If I could add or change anything about this product is where the jack is plugged in. Most jacks fit but some others might not fit because it's not positioned on the outside trim of the bass guitar.
The tone is fabulous!!! There's little to no feedback when played and it easily allows bassists to personalize the tone they consider to be rich. No matter the preset the tone is phenomenal.
Because there's an awesome EQ on the bass (bass, treble, mid, pickup, volume) you can easily get the sound you want at your fingertips! The neck is pretty heavy but is somewhat inconsistent at the top of the neck. easily controllable while playing.
You make it what you want!!!!!
I was a little taken back about having an unfinished mahogany bass guitar but I realized it isn't anything that can't be sprayed down with special wood cleaner.
I've been playing the Ibanez SR506 6 String for a while now and believe it or not this bass has the playability of the Musicman, Fender, or Ken Smith. The italian pickups from Berhinger makes it worth the money and it sounds sooooo clean. I tour globally and this is my bass of choice each and every time.

Solid bass
This bass is built solid and seemed like it would last. Nothing loose or flimsy.
The preamp provides a lot of variety in tone selection. Elixir strings were nice.
Sounded clean and resonant.
String spacing is a little too close for me. I wasn't use to playing a six string bass, which may have been a factor.
Variable fromdark and smooth to bright and crisp depending on the amp and bass preamp settings used.
Nice, but plain

Awesom bass
I have played fender, yamaha and peavy, this bass seems to be.my best one yet
The mk1's hands down make this bass the monster it is, the eq just made it that much better
Tone was just amazing, my band mates heard the difference
It is so light, and once you get the hang of having the ne,k heavier then the body(which took like half a song for me) you will love it, the neck is thin which makes it comfortable the string spacing wasnt even a problem...
However you want this bass to sound you get it, with the mk1 pickups and active 3 band eq
Amazing, I didnt think I was gonna like it but, I easily fell in love with it
Had to.set it up but the store did it free

A Great 6 String
Typical Ibanez quality, EMACULATE!!! This a is a great bass for the price. It feel's like a $2000 bass, but is has a $600 price tag. Perfect!!
The best feature on this bass is the neck. Super thin and fast. It's very easy to play those fast chops.
This bass sounds awesome. I was worried about the intonation on the high c, but those worries where exausted as soon as I played it. The only thing I dident like was the sound of the Elixer strings it came with. I slapped some DR High Beams on and now its perfect.
This bass feels great. The thin body makes this bass very light and comfortable. The neck is insanely fast. All the controls are in perfect proportion with the bass, very easy to reach.
SMOOTH!!! You can't go wrong with Bartoloni electronics.
Stunning finish. The visible grain makes this bass look really good.
Perfect, no adjustments needed.
