Player's Perspective

The SR is a modern classic. This 705 model sports high-end pickups, a gorgeous figured maple top, cool tonewood and impeccable fretwork. It could easily be in the next price point and still do just fine. The sound is punchy and big, with the tonal flexibility to pull off low-end growl, funky mid scoop or warm, mellow tones. I like the neck on this bass. It’s made with some interesting woods that give it a unique look, a cozy feel and rock-solid stability. The low B stays tight and musical – you won’t have to wrestle it to get rid of fret noise. This is a workhorse of a bass designed with the active player and gigger in mind.

Special Features

This 5-string monster features some great tonewood. The top is a gorgeous cut of figured maple – it’s a perfect match for the black ice finish. Ever heard of jatoba? It’s just as fun to play on as it is to say, and along with a few pieces of bubinga, it’s part of this bass’s neck. The look is dark and the feel is smooth. Electronically, this bass is way ahead of the pack. It features two Bartolini MK1’s. These split-coil designs provide a wide frequency range and incredible definition. Like traditional single coils, the neck and bridge have equal response, but without the hum. You can sculpt the sound to your exact liking with the active preamp, which also includes a mid frequency switch.
