Ibanez Introduces Soundgear SR670 and SR675 Basses

Ibanez’s flagship Soundgear bass series is being bolstered even further this year with the addition of the SR670 and the SR675. The four and five-string basses are set apart by a mahogany body topped with ash in a black and silver finish. They also feature Ibanez’s new B500 and B505 bridges.

“The Ash top offers superior tonal clarity and attack, while the Mahogany body delivers a warm and fat low end,” Ibanez explains. “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 allows for precise intonation and delivers excellent string-to-body vibration.”

Other features include a five-piece jatoba and walnut neck, Bartolini BH-2 pickups, and an Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ with mid-frequency switch. The Ibanez Soundgear SR670 and SR675 are available now for $649.99 and $699.99.
