Sleek, sexy, and sonically versatile.

A bolt-on neck joint on the Ibanez SR505 5-string bass guitar allows superb access to the upper frets of its five-piece jatoba/bubinga neck. Only 4/5" thick at the first fret, the 34" scale neck provides more comfortable playing than standard 5-string necks.

Bartolini MK1 pickups and 3-band EQ deliver world-class tone, while the mahogany body provides naturally warm lows and sweet sustain. Rosewood fretboard offers a strong, bright sound and an attractive appearance with a long grain. Ultradurable Accu-Cast B25 bridge offers quick and easy string changes. Single-screw saddle height adjustment gives you better stability than standard double-screw designs.

Case sold separately.

  • The best $579.00 I've ever spent!

    As reviewed by Scott Johnson on 9/24/2010

    I currently own one and am going to be in the market for a second one soon ... Honestly speaking, I don't know how she works in a live setting but for recording she sings like a bird! Just a touch of parametric EQ and she's good to go! I've been playing since '76 and have played ALOT of different basses and this one DELIVERS!! :D

  • Ibanez is the stuff

    As reviewed by Garnsey on 2/13/2010

    I've been playing bass for about 2 and a half years. I've always used Ibanez and i wanted to get a new bass. I tried out some other basses like Fenders,Trabens,etc. I picked up this bass and i was sold.The Bartolonis are very well balanced and i play rock and slap usually. This is the stuff. The EQ is just astonishing and i can get any sound i want without and pedal. Ibanez has done it again.

  • Get up on nis!!!

    As reviewed by Bassmon on 4/18/2007

    I currently own two Peavey basses a four and a five string. I was in the market for a six string bass and was thinking about buying another Peavey until I stopped in the local music store and played the SR506 six string from Ibanez. This bass plays like a dream. Whether I'm playing Funk, Gospel, or Jazz this bass has done well for me. I was never an Ibanez fan, but I am now!! This is a great bass. Plays just as good as the more expensive basses. In the future though I suggest Ibanez think about a tougher finish on this bass; You can scratch it easy otherwise I have no complaints. Good job Ibenaz!
