Looking for a versatile and comfortable 6-string bass? Look no further than the Ibanez Bass Workshop SRC6MS. This bass is designed for seasoned musicians who demand top-notch tone, playability, and style. With its unique multi-scale frets, premium tonewoods, and high-quality electronics, the SRC6MS is a bass that can handle any style of music, from jazz to metal and beyond.
One of the most striking features of the SRC6MS is its multi-scale frets. These frets are an exciting new trend in high-end bass guitar design, offering better intonation and more consistent tension and attack from string to string. The longer scale on the bass side of the instrument and the shorter scale on the treble side create a more natural hand position, making it easier to play complex bass lines and chords with ease. This multi-scale design also yields a more open tone, allowing for greater clarity and sustain.
The SRC6MS boasts a lightweight okoume body with a stunning black stained burst low gloss finish. This tonewood provides a light, bright tone with an articulate high end and tight low end. The five-piece jatoba/walnut neck offers excellent stability and comfort, ensuring that you can play for hours without fatigue. The neck is also reinforced with KTS Titanium rods for even more stability and sustain.
The multi-scale rosewood fingerboard is smooth and easy to play, with optimal tension and playability across all six strings. The Mono-Rail bridge ensures complete string isolation and maximum sustain per string, thanks to its independent "mini bridges" that prevent unwanted string vibrations from interfering with your tone. Ibanez calls this bridge "the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation," and you'll understand why when you hear how clear and defined your notes sound.
The SRC6MS is equipped with a pair of Bartolini BH2 dual-coil pickups, which deliver clear and open mids with deep and punchy lows. The long-blade pole pieces allow these pickups to offer hum-free single-coil-style character and consistency. The active 3-band EQ allows you to shape your tone with precision, while the balancer control lets you blend the sound of each pickup to your liking. Whether you want a round R&B throb or a responsive thumb-technique punch, the SRC6MS has the tonal versatility to make it happen.
In summary, the Ibanez Bass Workshop SRC6MS 6-string Multi-Scale Bass Guitar is a top-of-the-line instrument that combines premium tonewoods, innovative design, and high-quality electronics to deliver a bass that can handle any style of music. With its comfortable multi-scale frets, lightweight body, and smooth playing surface, the SRC6MS is the perfect choice for bassists who demand the best.
