Ibanez SR305E SR Standard Series 5-String Electric Bass (Metallic Silver Sunburst)
The SR Standard Series SR305E from Ibanez is a modern 5-string electric bass featuring a mahogany body in metallic silver sunburst finish. Its bolt-on SR5 5-piece maple/rosewood neck is fitted with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard which has white dot inlays. The solid double-cutaway body delivers maximum resonance and sustain, while the SR4 neck is smooth and fast, providing unlimited playability for the most demanding player.
The PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups provide a tone rich in harmonic detail and dynamic expression. A 3-way power tap selector switch allows you to choose between a variety of humbucking and single-coil settings, while the 3-band active EQ provides boost and cut over the treble, mid, and bass frequencies. Volume and balance controls can be used to further regulate the sound. Additionally, the SR305E is fitted with cosmo black hardware, including an Accu-cast B125 bridge, as well as a set of standard die-cast tuners on the headstock.
PowerSpan Dual Coil Pickups
- Developed by Ibanez, the exposed pole pieces of the PDC pickups produce a stronger signal, and increase the response of the higher frequencies without sacrificing low end. The result is a tone rich in harmonic detail and dynamic expression
Custom 3-Band EQ with 3-Way Power Tap Switch
- The 3-band EQ works in conjunction with a coil tap switch for maximum control over a wide variety of professional bass tones. Tap Mode (single coil) creates a punchy, dynamic sound with superior articulation. Series Mode (humbucking) delivers a full, warm tone, and Power Tap Mode provides the best of both worlds—combining the clarity of the single coil with the fat bottom end of the humbucker
Accu-Cast B120 Bridge
