The Ibanez SR1600B features a Poplar Burl body top which creates an exotic and boutique feel on SR's arched body.

The Ibanez's Premium SR1600B 4-string bass punches above its price range in every way. Sporting a toneful African mahogany body, gorgeous poplar/burl top, and rock-solid 5-piece panga panga/purpleheart neck, the SR1600B is a boutique-quality instrument with flawless playability, looks, and tone. A pair of aggressive Nordstrand Big Single pickups deliver massive, roaring tone infused with monumental sustain. The 5-piece neck is titanium reinforced, with premium tuners on one end and a Mono-rail bridge at the other. Custom Ibanez electronics with 3-band EQ complete the setup.

Massive, aggressive tone from Nordstrand pickups
With a "super-packed" coil, the Big Single is considered by Nordstrand to be the "tonal giant" of their pickup offerings. Ibanez spec'd a pair of these aggressive-sounding single-coil monsters for the Premium SR1600B. In addition, you have the powerful sound-shaping capabilities of Ibanez's Custom 3-band EQ, which gives you control over boost/cut for bass, mid, and high frequencies, a mid-frequency switch to fine-tune your midrange, and an EQ bypass. No matter what tonal texture your music calls for, this instrument's superb electronics will get you there fast. Fingers, thumb, or pick - the SR1600B's electronics have you covered.

Mono-rail bridge enhances definition and sustain
Ibanez specified their excellent Mono-rail 5 bridge for the Premium SR1600B. Unlike single-body bridges, each Mono-rail saddle is completely separate from the others. This does two things for you. First, since they aren't connected, the saddles create minimal sympathetic vibration. This prevents unused strings from ringing. Second, each saddle is double-anchored, allowing energy to transfer efficiently between the string and the body. Bassists are raving about the SR1600B's astonishing clarity and sustain.
