Ibanez SR 756 6-string Bass Review

ibanez-sr-756-6-string-bass-review

The Ibanez SR 756 6-string Bass is one of very few 6-strings that I have seen in a P/J pickup configuration.

This is one of the main features of this bass as it gives you the best of both worlds.

The natural flat finish over the maple body with the bubinga top and 5-piece jatoba and bubinga neck is very appealing to the eyes, not to mention the great tone that these combined woods produce. The SR 756 is very comfortable to play, even for smaller hands, due to the very thin neck. The 24-fret fingerboard is rosewood with medium frets, complete with abalone oval inlays and double inlays to mark the 12th and 24th frets.

I noticed recently that Ibanez has started using Nordstrand pickups in their basses, which really seem to highlight and bring out the true tone from the combination of the woods used for the SR 756. Both of the Nordstrand pickups are passive. The neck pickup is the Nordstrand CND P and the bridge pickup is the Nordstrand CND J Pickup.

The EQ is 3-band Ibanez Custom. Controls are Volume, Balance, Bass, Mid, and Treble. As this is a true active/passive bass, the treble control is also used as a passive tone control the 3 band EQ is not engaged; there is an EQ bypass switch to engage and disengage the EQ. The 3-band EQ is powered by a 9-volt battery that is easily replaced with the clip style battery compartment.

The bridge is the accu-cast B306 bridge with 16.5 mm string spacing, which allows ample room for both finger and slap style playing. All of the hardware is of a black matte finish.

The Ibanez SR 756 6-string bass is a very comfortable bass to play and can be used for the many genres of music that we hear today. It performs equally well both live and in the studio and is definitely worth checking into!
