Ibanez want to deliver amazing guitars at all price points and nothing shows that off more than the SR line. The SR370 may have the price tag of a high end beginners guitar but the feel and tonal versatility makes sure it punches way above its price bracket. Built to Ibanez's high standards and with all new hardware the 2016 version of the SR370E is nothing short of amazing.
Simplicity is key with the SR370. The body is made out of Maple for a bright and snappy tone that makes the most of the new PowerSpan pickups. It is also carved extremely thin to make it comfortable to play for any size of player. It sits close and doesn't destroy your back when playing live, what's not to love about that!
Killer New Hardware
No one wants to buy a bass just to find out that the pickups or preamp just arn't up to scratch which is why pretty much across all of their active basses you have Ibanez's own top grade preamps. With a 3 band EQ you can easily cover most styles but what makes this bass different to a lot of the others is how this works with the new PowerSpan pickups.
These open poled humbuckers have three different setting integrated in to the preamp. First of all you have the standard humbucking mode with no changes to the pickup. The next position cuts off one of the sets of poles giving you an authentic single coil sound. Finally the third option is a single coil setting but with an enhanced low end for when you need to rumble some seats.
Here's what Ibanez say about the SR370E
With its continued popularity, Ibanez has been keeping a constant effort to improve the SR series, answering the wider needs of a variety of players at a variety of budgets. Ibanez is now proud to announce huge upgrades to the SR370 series. The PDC pickups with exposed pole pieces provide high output with more clarity than ever. A 3-way power tap switch on the Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ creates 3 tonal options; Humbucking, Single coil, and Low-end enhanced single coil. This allows for much more versatility. Along with the new upgraded tonal options, the great staples of the SR line have been preserved; smooth and fast neck, lightweight body and supreme comfortability. All of these specs combine to create a truly impressive bass available at a great price.
