The Ibanez SRC6 Crossover is a 6-String Bass that plays like a guitar. This unique instrument pays homage to the classic 6-String basses of the 60s while forging its own footprint in today’s music. The body is carved into Ibanez’s popular and comfortable SR body style. This double-cutaway body is contoured and beveled to maximize player comfort.
The tension on a 6-string bass neck is considerable. With this in mind Ibanez has given the SR Crossover a 5-piece Jatoba/Bubinga bolt-on neck for superior tone and excellent stability. Jatoba is a hardwood, known for its rigid strength and Bubinga is known for its mellow, round tone. Together they create the perfect neck for this unique instrument. Following in the tradition of the 6-string bass of the 60’s, the SR Crossover features a 30" scale, for what is commonly known as a "short scale" bass. This is highly desirable for guitarists who sometimes double as bass players. (The shorter scale has a feel closer to that of an electric guitar.)
The 35HZ Passive Pickup features a dual-coil design for low noise and plenty of output. Using EMG's "CS" design (Ceramic and Steel), this pickup has the punch and fullness of older passive designs along with added brightness for a better-defined tone. EMGHZ features solid bar poles that cover the entire width of the strings so it works great on the 6-string bass. The dual EMG 35HZ pickups are paired with an Ibanez EBQ-IIID 3-Band EQ. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centered on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.
The Ibanez Crossover SRC6 features a fixed Tight End Bridge. Originally designed for guitars, this smooth, low profile bridge allows for tighter string alignment and a thinner fretboard. It features saddles that firmly lock on the base plate (to maximize string vibration transmitted to the body) and simple saddle height and intonation adjustments for easy setups.

Comments about Ibanez Src6 Crossover 6-String Bass Guitar:
After playing hundreds of basses and guitars over the past 15 years...it has been a while since I have been seriously inspired by something. I like the classic vi's but never was impressed by the low E string sound, but with this Ibanez with its active electronics, I am more than pleased...playing the cure, surf, blues or bass in general it is amazing. The short scale makes it easy to play, and the string spacing is close enough for cords, but wide enough to play finger style. While it is an amazing tapping machine, it is a little tricky to slap. I play it through a SWR Redhead, and a Randall SC212, and both sound great depending on what sound you want.
