The Ibanez SR405EQM Bass Guitar offers up a model that benefits from over 30 years of experience, a tried and tested design played by some of the best bassists in the business that is still wowing new players today. Whether you're taking to the studio or hitting the stage, the SR405EQM model is equipped with everything you need to get the job done in style.
Sleek SR body profile
The SR405 adopts the standard we've come to expect from the SR body profile, with a shallow body depth that is paired with gently bevelled edges and figure-hugging contours. Whether you like to play with your fingers or a pick, wear your bass high or sling it low, the body design removes any obstacles from the path of your picking hand whilst guaranteeing a comfortable playing position. The deep double-cutaways open the higher frets to be accessed with ease, ensuring that each and every fret is at your disposal.
The lightweight body is crafted from solid mahogany, which establishes a warm midrange foundation that packs a punch. Paired with the mahogany is a crisp quilted maple top.
Connected to the body is a solid and reliable 5-piece maple and rosewood neck, which guarantees a sturdy playing support throughout each performance. The neck is shaped to the exceptionally comfortable SR5 profile to minimise fatigue during those long performances. Married to the neck is a 24 medium fret rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with white dot position inlays to guide your way in style.
The SR405EQM is fitted with a pair of versatile PowerSpan dual-coil passive humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions. The pickups are voiced to bring out the best from SR405EQM, enhancing the warmth of the mahogany along with the bite of the maple. Shaping your tone to suit your musical style can be done using the master volume knob, whilst attenuating the pickup focus using the balancer pot. Ibanez' custom 3-band EQ with Power Tap switch is built-in to the bass, expanding the potential of your tonal arsenal. At your disposal are the Boost/Cut pots for Bass, Mid, and Treble for shaping the frequency response of the pickups with absolute precision. The Power Tap switch has 3 modes: Tap, Series, and Power Tap. Each one enables you to focus your output tone with regard to creating a punchy, dynamic response with impressive articulation, a full, warm tone, and a mixture between the two for single-coil clarity combined with the thick low-end depth of a humbucker.
Fitted to the body is an Accu-cast B305 bridge, which anchors the strings securely to create a seamless connection between them and the body to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to Ibanez' resilient tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully. The finish is complemented exquisitely by the sleek cosmo black hardware.
