The Ibanez SR305 5-String Electric Bass Guitar is an outstanding bass guitar that benefits from the SR Series many years of experience. The extended range benefits of this sophisticated model are translated beautifully by the perfectly appointed pickups, whilst the fit and playability is served perfectly by the steadfast hardware. If you’re looking for an affordable 5-string bass that is a joy to play, then this is the model you’ve been waiting for.
The body is crafted from lightweight Mahogany, which produces a powerful midrange burst of energy, and as with all SR models, is shaped to play as comfortably as you could possibly imagine. The deep double-cutaway body profile of the SR305 makes it a joy to perform with, as the upper register of the neck is opened up to make it very easy to access. Whatever style of music you play, the freedom afforded by this fantastic body shape is guaranteed to satisfy.
Fitted to the body is a 5-piece maple and walnut neck, which has been shaped to the fast and smooth playing SR5 profile. The neck is set along a generous 34-inch scale length, giving the strings ample room to resonate and generate a powerful sustain. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous jatoba fingerboard, which is home to 24 medium-frets that are adorned with abalone dot position inlays, providing an understated navigational aid.
The Powerspan humbucking pickups give you a beautifully balanced output that is punchy and without interference. Finally, for total control over your sound, the SR305 comes equipped with Ibanez's improved concept of the traditional 3-band EQ with the EQB-IIID allowing you to play with the frequencies to give you an exceptional tone.
Other premium appointments of the SR305 Bass are the inclusion of the Accu-cast B120 bridge which is designed to accommodate the heaviest gauge strings and giving the player perfect directional uniformity. The Ibanez SR305 Bass guitar brings you 5-string range in a lightweight, extremely playable package full of premium quality features and at under £300, gives you unbeatable value for money.
