Combining the sleek ultra-modern look of Ibanez Soundgear with aspects of a traditional bass sounds like an unlikely formula. But the new Ibanez Soundgear "ProActive" bass makes the combination work. The SRP offers the expected Soundgear features of a 2-octave fast, narrow neck and active bass boost, but the pickguard, passive P-style pickup and traditional ash body definitely hearken to an earlier era. The new Mono-Rail III bridge with isolated saddles not only complements the SRP's modern meets traditional look, it also allows increased transfer of vibrations from string to body.
The SRP400 Soundgear ProActive is available in TFB Tri-Fade Burst and WB White Blond finishes. The list price is $529.99
