Ibanez SR505E 5-String - Surreal Black Dual Fade
5-string Electric Bass with Okoume Body, 5-piece Jabota/Walnut Neck, Jatoba Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups
A Comfortable 5-string Bass with Tons of Tone
The Ibanez SR505 5-string electric bass offers one of the most playable necks in its class. With its thin 5-piece jatoba/walnut construction and SR5 profile, you won't believe how fast this neck plays and how effortlessly you can access the upper frets, thanks to this sleek instrument's deep cutaways. The okoume body is nicely balanced and contoured to be comfortable for hours of playing. When you need to deliver earthshaking lows and crystal-clear highs, the Ibanez SR505's Bartolini pickups and 3-band EQ really come through. This beauty is an amazing player and an incredible value.
Built for tone and comfort
The Soundgear series from Ibanez offers players a sleek alternative to the standard bass designs that have been around for half a century. The SR505's contoured okoume body provides a warm, woody tone, and the fast neck is built to give players in any genre a comfortable playing experience. And the SR505 is lightweight, which means you'll enjoy the gig more, play better, and not have an aching shoulder afterward.
Fast neck for nimble runs
For the SR505, Ibanez spec'd its supremely playable SR5-profile 5-piece jatoba/walnut neck, It feels great in your hand and offers effortless mobility up and down the fingerboard with great upper-fret access. The nut width is thinner than what you'll find on most 5-string bass necks, which further boosts the comfort factor. And the jatoba fingerboard pairs beautifully both sonically and visually with the neck and body woods.
Flexible Bartolini electronics
The Ibanez SR505 doesn't just play great and look great, it sounds amazing as well. The Bartolini BH2 humbucking pickups are paired with the custom Ibanez electronics that feature 3-band EQ for easily dialing in your tone. This is great for players that find themselves hopping from genre to genre, or when you just want to take total control of your signature sound. All in, the SR505 is a killer bass and an excellent value. We love it; we're sure you will too.
