Ibanez SR505E 5-String Electric Bass Guitar Brown Mahogany

Sorry, this item is not available.

Comfortable design with active EQ.

The SR505E bass from Ibanez is sure to excite any player with its smooth, fast neck, a lightweight body (only 8 lb.!) and perfectly matched electronics. A thin, sturdy and stable jatoba/walnut neck offers superior playability when combined with the extended neck joint, making the upper frets easily accessible.

The SR505E is equipped with Bartolini BH2 pickups in a dual-coil-style configuration with a lower resonant frequency, providing a balanced, warm response with a tighter bottom end and a fuller midrange. The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ features a 3-way mid-frequency switch, allowing for precise tonal control (250Hz, 450Hz and 700Hz) and an EQ bypass switch for passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.

Another feature on the SR505E is a B500 bridge has adjustable saddles for string-spacing adjustments, answering every bassist's individual string spacing demands, no matter what playing style. The saddles can be adjusted +/-1.5 mm. The neck-end adjustment allows you to tweak the neck easily without loosening the strings.
