    Incredible feel and sound on this baby. Neck thru, Nordstrand Pickups. I'll include a generic hard case for it also. Only reason I'm selling is I prefer a wider string spacing, I think this is 16.5mm. it weighed 9 lbs on my scale. It has never left my house, played very little.

    Factory Description:
    This stylish 6-string begins with a beautiful flamed Maple top/Mahogany body combination that produces a robust, full balanced tone. The Vintage Natural Flat finish allows the body to resonate more freely and creates an understated look of elegance, but the big news is the 5-piece Wenge/Bubinga Neck-Thru construction. Running from the top of the headstock, down to the lower strap pin, the Neck-Thru design increases sustain, improves tuning stability and allows unfettered access to the highest frets. Sustain and string vibration are also optimized by the ingenious Mono-rail IV bridge. Super-smooth, hand-crimped Medium frets on a Rosewood fingerboard make this handsome bass as enjoyable to play, as it is to look at.

    For electronics, the SR1406TE-VNF comes loaded with two Nordstrand Big Single passive pickups. Designed to create a full, aggressive sound, Big Singles produce a powerful low-end without sacrificing the articulation associated with single coil pickups. Additional sound shaping is provided by an Ibanez EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ.
    Pound for pound, the SR Premium is the working pros clear choice.

    Don't think I've ever seen a neck-thru ibanez. Looks weird but good. Beautiful bass and glwts!

    Some of the BTB Ibanez's have neck thru but not many SR's do.

    This is the only SR model that is currently in production that is neck-through. It is available in 4-string, 5-string, and 6-string versions: SR1400TE, SR1405TE and SR1406TE.

    I own both the SR1400TE (4-string) and SR1405TE (5-string) versions. These are excellent basses and a great value for all that you get! They sound and play really great!

    How does it balance? I had a SR506 and it tended to neck dive when playing standing up. It also had two truss rods. It looks like this bass only has one?

    Hi. I have used this bass very little and only in a sitting position, so I can't really say. Sorry. Yes it is a single truss rod.
    It is a 16.5 string spacing and I prefer wider, that's the only reason I'm selling it.
