Ibanez designed the SRSC800 Cerro that integrates the body to the neck like no other, the upper bout connects the body to the neck all the way to the 13th fret. More compact than other basses of its type, the SRSC800 requires less effort to maneuver, yet still provides the unique features and tone of larger models.

At the heart of the SRSC800 is a Mahogany body with a handsome Poplar Burl top shaped with the sinuous contours of the SR body style. A Neck-Through SR4 5-piece Maple/Purpleheart neck with a Purpleheart fretboard provides a smooth, fast playing surface. The slightly smaller extended upper horn of the SRSC800 makes contact with the neck from the 24th to the 13th fret, providing maximum stability and increased sustain.
The back of the neck is sculpted for comfort and easy access to the very highest notes of the G string. The smooth, graceful contour allows the palm of the left hand to move quickly and easily as it transitions up the neck, into the underside of the instruments body. The Mono-Rail V bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, allowing each string to vibrate independently with less interference from sympathetic vibration.
The full, clear tone of Bartolini MK-1 pickups provides a tight bottom end with a mid-range that is articulate without being harsh. The Ibanez Custom 3-band EQ with bypass switch and mid-freq switch puts a full range of tone at the players fingertips.
