The Soundgear bass with its sleek, smooth body and super-comfortable slim neck has been a favorite among advancing bassists for nearly 3 decades. The latest evolution of this iconic instrument sees the introduction of the new PowerSpan Dual Coil (PDC) pickups and the new Ibanez Custom Electronic 3-band eq w/3 way Power Tap switch. The feel and look is the same, but the tone takes this classic instrument into a new era.
SR fans will immediately notice the new look of the PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups. Developed by Ibanez, the exposed pole pieces of the PDC pickups produce a stronger signal, and increase the response of the higher frequencies without sacrificing low end. The result is a tone rich in harmonic detail and dynamic expression.
The 3-band EQ works in conjunction with a coil tap switch for maximum control over a wide variety of professional bass tones. Tap Mode (single coil) creates a punchy, dynamic sound with superior articulation. Series Mode (humbucking) delivers a full, warm tone, and Power Tap Mode provides the best of both worlds—combining the clarity of the single coil with the fat bottom end of the humbucker.
The Accu-cast B120 bridge is engineered to optimize the transmission of string vibration for a full, rich tone and enduring sustain. It is also designed to facilitate string changes and intonation adjustments, making setups effortless and easy. Extra-wide string slots accommodate heavier string gauges often required for alternate tunings.
