The Ibanez Bass Workshop framework melds superlative craftsmanship and technology with design innovation bassists know and expect of Ibanez. The SR Crossover sets the pace for this new breed, exploring a vast yet largely unexplored middle ground where the world of bass and guitar converge to create a fresh new spectrum of sound, open to bassists and guitarists alike.
Basses with a scale of 34" are known as "long-scale". Following in the tradition of the 6 string bass of the 60's, the SR Crossover features a 30" scale bolt-on neck, for what is commonly known as a "short scale" bass. This is highly desirable for guitarists who sometimes double as bass players. (The shorter scale having a feel closer to that of an electric guitar.)
The tension on a 6 string bass neck is considerable. With this in mind Ibanez has given the SR Crossover a 5-piece Jatoba/Walnut bolt-on neck for superior tone and excellent stability. Jatoba is a hardwood, known for its rigid strength and Bubinga is known for it's mellow, round tone. Together they create a the perfect neck for this unique instrument.
The SR Crossover is tuned like a guitar, E to E, only an octave lower, like a bass. This opens up a myriad of creative options for the daring to explore.
Being the hybrid instrument that it is, the SR Crossover straddles the line between bass and guitar. Originally designed for guitars, the smooth, low profile Tight End bridge allows for tighter string alignment and a thinner fretboard. It features saddles that firmly lock on the base plate (to maximize string vibration transmitted to the body) and simple saddle height and intonation adjustments for easy setups.
The 35HZ Passive Pickup features a dual-coil design for low noise and plenty of output. Using EMG's "CS" design (Ceramic and Steel), this pickup has the punch and fullness of older passive designs along with added brightness for a better-defined tone. EMG HZ features solid bar poles that cover the entire width of the strings so it works great on the 6 string bass.
Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is Ibanez's latest refinement on the concept of simple, straightforward, no-nonsense EQ control. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centered on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.
