Pick up the Ibanez SR870 electric bass, and you'll quickly discover that Ibanez packed this modestly priced instrument with serious upgrades. The first thing you'll notice is the lightweight, sleekly contoured arched mahogany body and eye-popping flamed maple/walnut top. Wrap your hand around the slim 5-piece jatoba/walnut neck and play a few notes: you'll notice your fingers are a blur as they fly across the jatoba fingerboard and abalone inlays. Plug in: two Bartolini BH2 dual-coil pickups pack a phenomenal punch with massive sustain courtesy of the Accu-cast B500 bridge, while active 3-band electronics deliver a vast array of sound-shaping possibilities for any gig or session. Ibanez put their considerable know-how into the SR870, and it shows. The Ibanez SR870 is an outstanding value.
