Aside from depicting natural beauty rarely seen in a bass guitar, the SR1705BE's mahogany body, with an elegant poplar burl/walnut top, creates a solid, well-balanced tone. The 5-piece Atlas neck is intricately designed to look good and play really, really smooth, while the Nordstrand Big Single pickups give players the boom they expect from a bass of this caliber. Topped off with a Mono-Rail V bridge, this 5-string masterpiece will impress experienced players with its intricate detail and sound.

5-Piece Atlas Neck
The 5-piece Atlas neck consists of alternating layers of panga panga and purpleheart, providing striking visual detail, tonal clarity, and superior note attack. The panga panga fretboard features a beautiful wood grain which produces a tight low and mid-range, with a sharp attack on high end—and its slim grip shape, coupled with premium fret edge treatment, permits superior playability and neck stability for years to come.

Nordstrand Big Single Pickups
Nordstrand Big Single pickups cram as meaty a single-coil as can fit in a soapbar-style pickup, producing a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, while still retaining the clarity that's characteristic of single coil pickups. The SR1705BE sports precision tonal control like you won't believe, including a 3-band EQ and switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.

Mono-Rail V Bridge
The Mono-Rail V bridge is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently secured and locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference—integral to high-quality playing on a 5-string bass.
