The SDB1 is a solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez for 2008. It is the initial signature model for Swedish bassist Sharlee D'Angelo who is best known for his work with the melodic death metal band Arch Enemy. It was produced in Indonesia.

The SDB1 features an Iceman-inspired body. It has neck-through body construction with a maple and bubinga neck with mahogany body wings a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid iron cross position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez PFR passive bass pickups with an EQB-II DX preamp with two-band equalizer, Mono-rail bridges, a plastic nut and Gotoh tuning machines. The rear control cover features a reproduction of D'Angelo's signature.

The SDB1 was discontinued after 2011 and replaced by the SDB2 which is similar except for its white flat finish.
