With its thin 5-piece jatoba/walnut construction and SR4 profile, you won't believe how fast this neck plays and how effortlessly you can access the upper frets, thanks to this sleek instrument's deep cutaways. The okoume body is nicely balanced and contoured to be comfortable for hours of playing. When you need to deliver earthshaking lows and crystal-clear highs, the Ibanez SR500E's Bartolini pickups and 3-band EQ really come through. This beauty is an amazing player and an incredible value.
