A bass of this magnitude is not for the average player. The Ibanez SR1705B features an incredible Ibanez build, Premium appointments, and advanced electronics. This bass is right for the advanced player who wants an incredibly well-crafted instrument.

Incredible Ibanez Build
The stylish, curvy body of this bass is cut from African mahogany and topped with poplar burl/walnut. The body tonewoods afford excellent, resonant bass tone. The neck is an Atlas-5, 5-piece panga panga/purpleheart, which offers beautiful sustain, in conjunction with the bound panga panga fretboard.

Premium Appointments
The SR1705B Premium has some high quality appointments, including its black matte Gotoh machine heads. It features an MR5S bridge, which has individual saddles to minimize interference with the other strings, while still maximizing positive vibrational transfer. The saddles can even be adjusted to increase or decrease string spacing to your personal preference. The fretboard is lined with medium frets which have been treated with Premium fret edge treatment. The SR1705B also showcases beautiful abalone oval inlays which look great and make finding your way across the fretboard a breeze.

Advanced Electronics
The electronics on this bass are stellar. The foundation of it all is the Nordstrand Big Single pickups at the neck and bridge. These passive pickups grab all of the bass tone you can handle and spit it out with great sound and sustain. The controls that adjust the pickups' output are really advanced. The SR1705B Ibanez Custom electronics have a 3-band EQ with an EQ bypass switch, and passive tone control on the treble pot. This bass also sports a 3-way Mid frequency switch which lets you select between 250Hz, 450Hz, and 700Hz.
