  • THUNDERNEWS: New Ibanez for 2012

    I did up this article when news of the new SR was announced.

    Well, she's out now, so I figured we could have a refresher.

    Ibanez SR 25th Limited Edition

    The forums and reviews are raving about the SR Premium, built for the working pro. Our 25th SR Anniversary Model is a Premium at its core, but with a twist - an exotic Padauk top. This wood’s subtle reddish hue has long captivated fine woodworkers and revisits one of the most popular tops in SR history.



    - Made by Ibanez Premium factory
    - USA Nordstrand® "Big Single" pickups provide huge, full, loud, and aggressive single-coil tone
    - EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ, with Mid frequency switch and eq bypass switch, gives you a world of possibilities in tone
    - Mono-Rail IV bridge with locking saddles allows each string to vibrate fully with no interference from the other strings
    - Includes special gig bag


    Neck Material: 5pc Wenge/Bubinga
    Neck Type: SR4
    Body: Mahogany body/ Padauk top
    Frets: Medium frets
    Fingerboard: Rosewood
    Inlay: Abalone oval inlay
    Bridge: Mono-Rail IV bridge
    NeckPU: Nordstrand™ Big Single
    BridgePU: Nordstrand™ Big Single
    HW Color: Gold

    (Ibanez only features these close-ups of the 5-string version)

    Sleek, comfortable mahogany body with padauk top.

    Mono-rail IV bridge with locking saddles allows each string to vibrate fully with no interference from the other strings.

    Durable 5pc wenge/bubinga neck with titanium reinforcement rods.

    Nordstrand™ "Big Single" pickups produce a full-bodied, powerful, agressive total texture, while still retaining the clarity of single coil.

    Sells for anywhere between $1100.00 and $1500.00.

    She sure looks like a beauty! What do you think? Better than the Prestige?

    Check out the Ibanez Website for more details on this and their other basses.

      It's a winner in my book. I have the SR500 and love the looks, sound and playability. This is stunning, especially the reddish hue of the 5-string. If I had the bucks I'd get one.

      Now, that's something worth considering if I wanted to go for a 5-string. Getting itchy here already. Gotta hit myself on the head, and snap out of it.
