Ibanez Unveils the SR Mezzo Bass
Ibanez has expanded their flagship SR series of basses with the SRMD200 “Mezzo”. The entry-level model comes in a variety of finishes but sets itself apart with a medium 32-inch scale.
“32” scale provides a shorter reach and tighter fret spacing allowing for easy execution of fast runs and quick jumps across the fingerboard,” the company says. “From top to bottom this scale length makes for a very quick and agile instrument, while still preserving a high degree of the attack and low end of full-scale basses.”
The SRMD200 is built with a poplar body, maple neck, and maple fretboard with black dot inlays. Ibanez fits it with their Dynamix P/J pickup set and a custom 2-band EQ. It comes in several finishes with a white pickguard (Candy Apple Matte, Sapphire Blue Metallic, Roadster Orange Metallic, Sea Foam Pearl Green) as well as two with a black pickguard: Aqua Green and Vintage White.
The Ibanez SRMD200 will be available soon with a street price of $299.99.
