Overview

Part of the SR Premium line and manufactured in the Ibanez Premium factory, the SR Premium 1405E 5-string electric bass is designed with high-end features while maintaining affordability, making it the new standard for the serious, professional musician.

The SR Premium 1405E boasts a smoothly contoured figured maple top on a large mahogany body for gorgeous looks and powerful, aggressive tone. Its five-piece SR5 wenge/bubinga neck is also bolstered with KTS titanium reinforcement rods inside, and finished with a rosewood fretboard. The Mono-Rail bridge is the ultimate in string isolation for bass. Each saddle is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer and no interference. One screw controls the height of each saddle for easy adjustment.

Nordstrand Big Single pickups provide the clear sound characteristic of single coil pickups with an aggressive edge. The EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ with mid-frequency and EQ-bypass switches gives you a world of tonal possibilities, making the SR SR Premium 1405E as versatile as it is good-looking.

Includes gig bag.

    Comments about Ibanez SR Premium 1405E 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    I play a lot of rock and blues covers and this bass can produce tones like many other basses. Five knobs seems to be the sweet spot in terms of keeping me away from the rig. My initial impression is that the EQ has too much variability. Roll the bass knob all the way down and there's nothing left. Likewise, full treble can rattle your fillings loose.

    Here is how I would set it up. Get the sound you want with the EQ switched off which is pretty much the same as all of the EQ pots set to the center indent and the dark/bright switch set to bright.

    Then, you can tailor a slap mix that is ready at the throw of the EQ switch and can go from there to Blues/Reggae by toggling the deep option. That gives you three mixes without turning a knob. Tape down the three EQ pots and you can play like Flea - if you're Flea. If you want to turn a knob, try the balance; but read on first...

    I don't use any stomp boxes but I ordered a Hum Debugger and a rack mount compressor/gate just to try to keep this bass quiet when shifting away from the natural cancellation at the center of the pick-up balance. That should be sufficient for road and studio work. This is not really a defect but rather the nature of single coils. I'm not sure I should take a star off for that but I did. Call it a day at four and a half.

    Great bass but the color of the bass is different vs pix on web site

    By Eric-Jan Schmidt

    from Boston, MA

    Comments about Ibanez SR Premium 1405E 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    Great bass. Plays easily and the electronics give you a wide range of sounds to pick from. Small rattles can occur on the bridge, interestingly have this with my ibanez acoustic bass as well. Very annoying issue though is that the color of the unit i received when ordered in the store online - which took 1.5 hours due to system malfunctions - is that the color of the bass I received is quite different from the one here on the web site, it's the darker orange brown type color. The guys of GC in the Boston store have gone out of their way to help - they're great - but Ibanez is not helping here I guess. To be continued
