Throughout the past 30 years, the Ibanez SR series basses have evolved into one of the most popular and distinctive bass guitars in the world—the choice of players from every level—pro and novice alike. In celebrating this iconic line, Ibanez is pleased to offer four 30th-anniversary models that embody the quality, design and tone that has become the essence of the SR series.
As part of the esteemed Ibanez Premium line, the SR30TH5PE is manufactured with select tonewoods and high-profile electronics by some of the most experienced and skilled Ibanez craftsman. This 5-string bass features a semi-hollow Bubinga top and an Ash/ Mahogany back body shaped in the iconic SR design. Three oval sound holes add to the unique, artistic design of the bass, while enhancing the warm, rich resonance of the semi-hollow construction. A slightly thicker body, combined with the half-hollow construction, helps to maintain both comfort and body balance.
An Atlas-4 5pc Wenge/Bubinga neck, with Wenge fretboard, features medium frets and Abalone oval inlay. The neck end adjustment allows for easy neck adjustment without loosening the strings. The Mono-Rail V Bridge offers a wide intonation range and is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each saddle is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
Electronics include single-coil Nordstrand “Big Single” pickups, for a full-bodied, aggressive tonal texture that retains the clarity associated with single-coil pickups. The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ, with EQ bypass switch and 3-way mid frequency switch allows for precise tonal control (250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz). When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble-tone control knob acts as a passive tone control for the instrument’s output. This setup, combined with the warmth of the semi-hollow Mahogany body, creates a tone that is warm and “woody”, while retaining clarity and definition.
The SR30TH5PE also features Gotoh machine heads for superior tuning stability.
