Comfortable SR body
The SR300E is shaped to the slender SR body shape that we've all come to know and admire. The slim body depth pairs delightfully with the elegant contours and sweetly executed curves to make this a supremely enjoyable instrument to play. Whether you prefer to swing your bass low and keep it tucked up high, the SR300E always feels just right. Built using mahogany, the body retains a lightweight feel whilst managing to produce a rapturous midrange energy. The eye-catching paintjob guarantees that you'll stand out during performances.
Five-piece neck design
The team at Ibanez know a thing or two When it comes to crafting solid and comfortable necks, and the SR300E is home to a beauty. Joined to the body is a five-piece maple/walnut neck that provides strength and resilience in spades. The SR4 profile ensures the neck sits sweetly in the hand as you navigate the generous 34-inch scale length. Married to the neck is a jatoba fingerboard with 24 medium frets adorned with white dot position inlays to guide you.
The SR300E 2018 Spot Run is equipped with PowerSpan dual coil pickups fitted in the neck and bridge positions. The pickups accentuate the versatile qualities of the woods used throughout the SR300E, capturing the depth and richness of the mahogany, the articulate response of the maple/walnut and the clarity and pop from the jatoba.
The level of control available is remarkable for such an affordable bass. You'll find a master volume pot alongside a balancer pot for focusing the output of each pickup with precision. The PowerTap system enables you to readily switch the character of the dual coil pickups to suit whatever musical style you're tackling between single-coil, humbucker or a combination of the two. Finally, Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ controls allow you to fine tune the bass, middle, treble frequencies for absolute control.
The SR300E 2018 Spot Run features gig-ready hardware throughout.
