What a beauty, and such a monstrous tone! The Ibanez Premium SR2405W electric bass guitar starts with a mahogany body, topped with gloriously figured maple and panga panga. The fast 5-piece neck is then decked out with a smooth panga panga/maple fingerboard embellished with elegant abalone oval inlays. This is one great-looking, great-playing bass. Still, the Premium SR2405W’s priority is tone, and that’s just what the two Aguilar Super Double pickups deliver: fat, punchy, beautifully balanced tone. And with the 3-band EQ, you’ll have more than enough sound-shaping power to hit the stage or studio with any band. Sweetwater’s advice: When you’re ready to step up your bass game, the Ibanez Premium SR2405W is an excellent choice.
Acclaimed SR Premium quality
Pro players and gear journalists alike have been singing the praises of the Ibanez SR Premium line since its introduction. Crafted by the company’s elite Premium luthiers, SR2405W series basses share many of the high-end appointments of the renowned Prestige line. This singular attention to detail manifests itself in features like ultra-smooth hand-crimped frets and the Mono-rail bridge — an ingenious design that kills off undesirable sympathetic vibrations while isolating and optimizing string harmonics. It all adds up to a boutique-quality bass that’s an incredible value.
Precision crafted with premium materials
Ibanez makes some very fine instruments, and the Premium SR2405W bass is no exception. Ibanez chose a mahogany body for warmth, low-end impact, and rich sustain. It’s topped with figured maple and panga panga, a striking look that also enhances your tone. And the 5-piece panga panga/purpleheart neck with KTS titanium rods doesn’t just provide striking visual detail, but it’s also incredibly strong to resist warping and twisting over the years. The neck is capped with a silky-smooth panga panga fingerboard, graced with abalone oval inlays. In spite of these impressively exotic materials, this Premium bass stays true to a foundational element of the SR concept: that of being delightfully lightweight — an ironic contrast to this instrument’s girthy sonic character.
