Retro-modern Medium-scale Bass from Ibanez
Ibanez Mezzo electric basses feature a medium 32-inch scale length that's comfortable for a wide range of players. These value-packed bass guitars provide a moderate string tautness that facilitates easy bends in the high register — and unlike some short-scale basses, the low E is never flubby, even when played open. The Mezzo SRMD200D 4-string bass has a poplar body with a gloss finish and a fast, thin SRMD4 maple bolt-on neck with a jatoba fingerboard. Bass players know how important tonal versatility is, and you'll be impressed with this instrument's pair of Dynamix pickups — a hum-canceling split single-coil in the middle position and a J-style single-coil at the bridge. Custom electronics with 2-band EQ give you even more sound-shaping potential. For powerful, punchy tone, smooth playability, snappy retro-modern visuals — and big bang for your buck — the Ibanez Mezzo SRMD200D should definitely be on your short list.
Huge range of tone from Dynamix pickups
The Dynamix P and Dynamix J pickups on the Ibanez Mezzo SRMD200D are designed to deliver the vibe of the most famous electric bass guitars in history. From fat, thumping rock and R&B tones to classic jazz fusion growl, you've got a wide sonic territory to explore. And to help you on your way, the SRMD200D has a custom signal routing setup that's somewhat unusual in this price range.
Custom electronics and 2-band EQ for sonic versatility
The Mezzo SRMD200D features a master volume and pickup blend control, as well as separate bass and treble controls. Once you've got your basic tone dialed in, use the 2-band EQ to help cement your place in the mix. Once you play with it for a bit, you'll be able to tweak the tone of your axe for any musical setting in seconds.
Sleek, retro-modern looks that look great onstage.
With the Mezzo SRMD200D, you get the best of both worlds. On top of its cool, slinky body shape and eye-catching finish, the Ibanez Mezzo SRMD200D bass sports a chrome bridge and tuners and classic dot inlays for an extra splash of vintage style. You also get Ibanez's sleek, modern string-treeless headstock with its innovative sliding truss rod adjustment door. And when it comes to vintage mojo, you can't beat the look of that funky pickguard shape!
