The basses sport a Padauk top. The company says the wood’s “subtle reddish hue has long captivated fine woodworkers and revisits one of the most popular tops in SR history.”

For electronics, the anniversary SR’s feature USA Nordstrand “Big Single” pickups and an EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ, with Mid frequency switch and EQ bypass switch.

The bass offers a Mono-Rail IV bridge with locking saddles, and ships with a gig bag as well.

Street price is $1,099.99 for the 4-string, and $1,199.99 for the 5-string. For more information, visit Ibanez’s website.
