The Ibanez SR305E 5 String bass guitar, here in Root Beer Metallic, is a seriously good quality instrument that packs a punch for the small price tag. With an active EQ, humbucking pickups and custom electronics it’s got loads of amazing tones that are great for gigs, studio or practice work. Also, as you’ve got 24 frets you’ve got even more neck to play with! The punch that this guitar delivers is quite amazing, that low B string really does punch out some huge bass tone!
The body is made of Mahogany making it nice an resonant. A good weight to the guitar, not overly heavy even though it’s a 5 string. The 5 piece Maple & Rosewood neck is satin finished and is as smooth as you could ever wish! Playing this beauty seems like second nature it’s just so great to play!
This bass is all about the awesome Custom Ibanez electronics; with two dual coil PowerSpan pickups it’s got plenty of output and plenty of tone! With an active, battery powered, 3-band EQ, a pickup blend and a clever three way tap switch you’ve got endless amounts of great sounds. This is a great guitar for the studio as you can fine tune your tone in an instant. The switch allows you to go from the standard humbucker to a single coil configuration and then to an enhanced single coil setting where there’s more punchy low end on offer.
All the hardware is finished in the cool Cosmo Black which finishes off the look perfectly. If you’re looking for a 5-string bass then you won’t find a better model for the same price! Come try it out and see for your self!
