The Ibanez SRH505 Bass Guitar in Dragon Eye Burst Flat is a glorious example of what Ibanez does best in producing exceptional instruments at affordable prices. Incorporating over 30 years’ worth of experience alongside pioneering design concepts, this extraordinary semi-hollowbody fretless bass is a wonder to behold.
Rich semi-hollowbody tones
The SRH505 is built to a semi-hollowbody construction, which is crafted using mahogany for the back and sides with a spruce top. The body design and tonewood partnership establishes a rich acoustic tone that is infused with a generous dynamic range. The mahogany ensures a weighty low-end energy, whilst the spruce top cuts through with an upper frequency articulation that guarantees the best of both worlds.
Ibanez has secured a lightweight playing feel, whilst the ergonomically designed forearm contour on the upper bout creates a comfortable resting position for your picking arm. The deep double cutaways and contoured neck heel remove any obstacles that may impede your fretting hand from reaching the highest frets.
5-piece Jatoba/Bubinga neck
Fitted to the body is a 5-piece Jatoba/Bubinga neck, which is shaped to the ever so comfortable SRH5 profile. As noted about, the contoured neck heel increases playing comfort, whilst the solid feel of the neck is reassuring when you're laying it down.
Married to the neck is a bound rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that are adorned with off-set white dot position inlays to guide your way. The bound design ensures smooth transitions between each fret to maximise playing comfort.
Custom bridge for AeroSilk Piezo system
Fitted to the body is a custom bridge that houses the AeroSilk Piezo system, which translates the rich timbre of the SRH505 perfectly. On the back of the bass there are trim pots for each string, which allows you to carefully attenuate the response from each string to suit your playing style and tonal desires.
As we’ve come to expect, the tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision, so no matter what you throw at this beauty, it is ready for action every time. If you’re looking for the elegant timbre of an upright bass combined with the comfortable playability and tonal versatility of an electric, then the Ibanez SRH505 Spot Run Bass Guitar in Dragon Eye Burst Flat is a must-have model!
