- Bartolini® MK1 Pickups – The MK1 pickups are split coil designs that provides a very wide frequency range and enhanced definition for maximum accuracy. The Neck and Bridge pickups have equal response, like traditional single coils, but without the hum and noise.
- EQB-IIIS – In addition to 3-band EQ, the SR is now equipped with a mid-frequency select switch, enabling you to instantly select 250Hz and 600Hz-the heart of the mid zone -for a more dynamic and ideal tone.
- The B300 Bridge is newly designed for 2012 and standard on SR500 and higher basses. String height continues to be a simple and quick single set-screw adjustment, but the new saddle design improves string-to-body vibration conductivity. Walls and channels of the new bridge plate effectively “trap” the saddles, ensuring perfect directional uniformity.
