    The only Ibbies with EMG pickups that are currently in production are the SRT series: http://www.ibanez.com/BassGuitars/Series-srt

    As for older, discontinued-but-probably-showing-up-on-ebay-from-time-to-time, I'll let someone who really knows what they're talking about, like Swin, handle it. ;)

    The Ibanez SRA 500 has EMG Hz's... You can see me playing mine in videos at my blog - Praise and Worship Bass Guitar. I love it, it produces outstanding low-end, as well as a very good slap bass tone depending on the on-board electronic settings. For its price, I think it is an outstanding Ibanez model.

    My Guitar Center has the SRA300 and SRA 305, the SRA 500 series little brother, and I am really impressed with both. Lightweight, effective EQ, clean sound, great necks.

    Only the SRT and the SRA lines have EMGs. The big difference is: SRA basses come with EMG-HZ (which IMO are crap), while the SRT are equipped with US-made EMGs.
