Ibanez present the brand new Premium SR bass guitar with this 5-string model, the SR1305. The SR1305 is built to the same high standard specs as its 4 string sibling, the SR1300, however Ibanez have added a 5th string to the SR1305 which enables you to broaden your playing range tremendously. The choice of materials used in the construction of the SR1305 Premium SR Bass are purposely selected to ensure the sound and appearance are equally remarkable.
Like its counterpart, the SR1305 is constructed using select tonewoods that both look and sound aesthetically pleasing, while remaining durable over time. The top is composed of solid ash and walnut, and the body is made of mahogany. This combination of three superior types of wood forms fat low end tones to clear-cut highs, while the mahogany inherently adds warmth to the overall bass timbre.
A 34 inch 5-piece wenge / bubinga neck is firmly joined to the body of the SR1305 bass guitar which has an extremely comfortable playing feel as you glide along. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard with 24 medium-size frets. The neck is given Premium Fret Edge treatment that gives the neck a more rounded feel in your hand, which improves grip and overall comfort. The frets are adorned with Avalone oval dot inlays to guide you from one to the next with confidence.
NORDSTRAND “BIG SINGLE” PICKUPS
Ibanez have employed Nordstrand “Big Single” pickups at the neck and bridge positions. The “Big Single” pickups are single coil bass pickups which provide you with huge, aggressive tones, perfect for a rock or metal guitarist. These pickups use the same magnets as the fat stack to give you such a big sound.
Onboard controls feature on the SR1305 including Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ with Eqbypass switch, and a 3-way Mid frequency switch.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The SR1305 is fitted with a Graph Tech Black Tusq XL nut and a new Mono-rail V bridge which prolongs the sustain and also extends the bass’ intonation.
Gotoh machine heads sit securely in the headstock to uphold tuning integrity, and the gold hardware offers a striking contrast against the natural appearance of the wood.
The Ibanez SR1305 Premium SR Bass Guitar in Natural Flat is a beautiful bass guitar with an abundance of high quality components. Ibanez supply a soft gig bag too to keep it protected on the road.
