The core Soundgear philosophy has not changed since its debut in 1987 : a modern bass for players who want a thin, fast neck, and the ability to dial in any tone for any genre-from complex electric jazz to raging metal. The 2008 Soundgear has continued this tradition while adding a modern flavor.
For 30 years the Ibanez SR has given bass players a modern alternative. With its continued popularity, Ibanez is constantly endeavoring to answer the wider needs of a variety of players, at a variety of budgets. But no matter what the specs, the heart is the same-SR continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.
The A5-Custom Z features a beautiful zebra wood top and back over a mahogany body. This combination of tone woods provides stunning beauty and tone. The Bartolini electronics package on the A5-Custom Z complements the natural “earthy” tone of its high end tone woods.
The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength. Whether you favor a hardtail (fixed) bridge or our industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument.
