Ibanez Premium SR1200 VNF 2011
Ibanez Premium SR1200 VNF, natural finish, made in Indo 2011. Here we have a pretty serious bass. The Ibanez Premium line launched a decade or so ago to great acclaim; they're well regarded for consistent build quality and great hardware. This one is blessed with a set of Nordstrand pickups, which combined with the active pre-amp gives you a crips hi-fi tone with heaps of tweaking options. It's a great bass for Wooten-style tricky stuff; the neck is super slick and quick, the lightweight body is responsive and comfy and the tone is very snappy and clear. The new equivalent of this sells for a small fortune these days, so this is a great little buy. If you like your basses light, fast and full of fancy looking woody woods, get fully Premiumed with this.
