Since 1987, professional musicians all over the world have made the superb Ibanez SR Series of basses their go-to instrument both in the studio and onstage. Thanks to the smooth playability, powerful dynamic response and impressive tonal versatility, the Ibanez 2016 SR305 5-string electric bass guitar adapts to any playing style and musical genre with ease.
The Ibanez SR305 body features delicately shaped contours that are designed to facilitate any player's style, so that whoever pickups up this bass feels like they've been playing it all their lives. Though it may be a 5-string model, the profile is slender and light in weight. The body has been built from mahogany, a tonewood that has a delicate balance between brightness and warmth that makes it incredibly versatile.
The neck of the SR305 offers a very comfortable playing experience. Built from a hardy maple/rosewood blend, and paired with a rosewood fingerboard, everyone will appreciate the effortless playability afforded by this fantastic model. Thanks to the design team at Ibanez, each and every one of the 24-frets of this 5-string model is within a comfortable reach, with your path guided by the dot position inlays.
The Ibanez SR305 is fitted with two PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The pickups are controlled with individual tone knobs controlling the bridge and neck pickups, and a master volume knob, which is a simple yet powerful layout. Not only that, but the 3-band EQ controls give you a huge range of control, enabling you to boost mids for a punchier sound, or scoop the mids out for a distinctive low-end rumble with high-end slap – the possibilities are endless and all within easy reach.
The body is equipped with an accu-cast B125 bridge, which keeps the strings anchored securely to provide optimum intonation and tension. Not only does this give your tone incredible power and sustain, but also gives you greater confidence in this model’s ability to perform.
Whatever your playing ability, if you are looking to make the move up from a 4-string model, or need a reliable gigging backup, the Ibanez SR305 5-string bass guitar would make a fantastic addition to any bassist’s collection.
