SR1825-NTL features Walnut & Flamed Maple body top creating exotic and boutique feels on SR's beautifully arched body. Mahogany body delivers a warm tone with rich resonance. Atlas-5 pc Panga Panga/Purpleheart neck provides tonal clarity and superior note attack with the Panga Panga fretboard.

The slim neck grip shape permits superior playability with the meticulous Premium fret edge treatment. It is constructed with KTS TITANIUM reinforcement rods, increasing its stability and adding sustain. The neck end adjustment is easy and saves the time to loosen the strings.

The MR5 Monorail bridge is securely locked down to the body, allows wider intonation adjustment and maximum vibration transfer without interference.

3 way mid-frequency switch (250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz) enables precise tonal control. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble-tone control knob works as a passive tone control for the instrument's output. The single-coil Nordstrand "Big Single" fits in the soap-bar pickup, producing a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture while still retaining the clarity that's characteristic of single-coil pickups.

I've been playing bass for 40 years, and have owned or played a great many basses of all types, styles and price brackets. I bought this a couple of years back, and have never regretted it. It outshines gear way higher in price. It's smooth to play, action is wonderful - and you just can't get past Ibanez's neck width for playability. The sound is great - I get so many other bass players commenting on how great it sounds. The resonance, sustain, and overall tone are just fantastic.
