Tonal versatility from a sleek 5-string.
The Ibanez SR305M bass guitar is the 5-string version of the SR300 making it an ideal first bass that will deliver tone you wouldn't expect from a starter instrument. The SR305M bass has a 5-piece SR5 maple/rosewood neck and light, agathis body with smooth rounded edges, and its extreme lower cutaway allows easier access to the upper frets. The EXF-N2 pickups and an upgraded 3-band EQ give you a great overall sound no matter what style you're into.
Accu-cast B120 Bridge
The B120's extra-wide string slots can accommodate even the heaviest of gauges. Walls and channels of the new bridge plate effectively "trap" the saddles, ensuring perfect directional uniformity.
CAP EXF-N2 Pickups
The arched construction of the EXF-N2 pickup exemplifies Ibanez common-sense innovation. The arched design sets each string at equal distance to the pickup, resulting in balanced volume output. In terms of sonic character, these humbuckers are often described as "punchy." High quality shielding eliminates unwanted noise.
EQB-IIID 3-band EQ
The EQB-IIID is an improvement on the concept of simple EQ control. Boost and cut of Mid Control are each centered on a slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.
