The SR870 is visually striking with a smooth fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics. Engineered to satisfy the particular needs of bassists, as well as inspire their creativity, the SR870 features a flamed maple top and mahogany body plus the new Accu-cast B500. The maple top produces a clear tonal attack while the mahogany body delivers a warm and fat low end.
The principal feature of the new bridge is the saddles can be adjusted for various string spacing. The bridge was developed in an effort to meet the needs of various players who enjoy different string spacing. The saddles can be easily adjusted to widen or tighten the string spacing by +/-1.5mm. It also offers precise intonation and delivers excellent string-to-body vibration.
The thin, sturdy, and stable Jatoba/Walnut neck offers superior playability when combined with the extended neck joint, making the upper frets easily accessible. The truss rod adjustment at the neck pocket allows you to easily fine-tune the neck without loosening the strings. The Ibanez Custom 3-band electronics and 3-way mid-frequency switch allow for precise tonal control with selectable mid-range EQ points at 250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz. The Bartolini® BH2 dual-coil pickups, with their lower resonant frequency, provide a balanced warm response, tighter bottom end, and a fuller midrange.
