Professional players and gear reviewers alike have been singing the praises of the SR Premium series since its introduction. Crafted by the Ibanez Premium luthiers, the SR1405 shares many of the high-end appointments of the much-respected Prestige line. This extraordinary attention to detail manifests itself in features like super-smooth hand-crimped frets, and the Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge— an ingeniously designed unit that kills off unwanted sympathetic vibrations while isolating and optimizing favorable string harmonics.

The SR1405’s Mahogany body combined with Figured Maple top creates a solid, well-balanced tone. The 5-piece Atlas 5 neck consists of alternating layers of Wenge and Bubinga, providing a striking visual detail, not to mention neck stability for years to come.

In spite of this impressive hit list of exotic materials, this Premium bass stays true to the original SR concept: being surprisingly light in weight—a noticeable contrast to the instrument’s thick sonic character. That big, bold, tonal personality is due largely to a pair of Nordstrand Big Single pickups—the kind well acquainted with boutique instruments. No matter what musical texture is desired, the Ibanez Custom 3-Band EQ, with EQ bypass and mid-frequency switch, will get there fast.

    Comments about Ibanez Premium SR1405E 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    I was never much of an Ibanez bass fan. Always thought they were good instruments, but not my thing. However, the thing that I could not ignore in my current purchase was how much you get for the price point compared the other basses. Fantastic bass tone, feel, and look.

    But, Ibanez needs to get folks who now how to stain woods and do it well CONSISTENTLY. Bass looked kinda greenish and NOTHING like pictured. Fortunately it looks even better than pictured in this case, but do be prepared for some variability. Some fret buzz, but nothing I can't quixkly remedy. Neck pup had rust and goo on the poles. In general, there were opportunities for improvement with regards to quality and consistency.
    Still worth every penny though.


    A great addition to my bass collection.

    Comments about Ibanez Premium SR1405E 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    I am a bass geek and collector. I have multiple basses from very high end to more moderately priced. I would rate the Ibanez SR1405E as one of my better basses. It is truly a great value for the money. I honestly have not found much yet that I do not like about it. The neck needed a little adjusting out of the box, but it has stayed very straight and plays great. One of the things that has really impressed me was the quality of the fret work. The frets are all clipped and polished smooth and very level. I have other more expensive basses where the fret work is not nearly as good. The pickup and electronics sound great with very low noise and high output. I think the monorail bridge was also a nice addition. The notes are clear and distinct with great sustain. Overall, I am very pleased with this addition to my collection.

        Comments about Ibanez Premium SR1405E 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

        I agree with Davilar, I tried different Ibanez a couple of weeks ago at GT NYC and the wood finish is worst than horribly low quality. I am surprised that's not standard for Ibanez. Although I ordered a Cerro 5 string a couple of months ago and the wood work and finishing was very nice. I don't get it.
