Overview

For 25 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. Embraced by bassists over the decades, the iconic series continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body and perfectly matched electronics.

The SR300E 4-string electric bass is priced like a beginner's instrument, but it has features that make it anything but a cut-rate starter axe. First off, it has a 5-piece SR4 maple/rosewood neck and light, mahogany body with smooth rounded edges and a deep, lower cutaway for better access to the upper frets.

For electronics, the SR300E features Ibanez PowerSpan dual coil pickups. Equalization chores are handled by Ibanez Custom 3-band EQ with Power Tap switch. This allows the control to be more effective in creating useful, popular bass tones.

I have played guitar for many years and recently I've wanted to take up bass playing. This bass was recommended by the salesperson at GC, in Wichita. I had performed a considerable amount of research on beginner basses but this wasn't one on my list, big mistake. I'm glad I listened to the salesman. The neck is thin, smooth, and fast. The factory set up was great. The finish is outstanding and the electronics are great. Because of the pickup switch and active EQ, there are tons of tone variations available. A great bass for the beginner or experienced musician. Note: I recently changed out the stock round wounds for some Chrome D'Addario XLs and Woah! It now plays LOW and LOUD thru my Rumble 500 Combo!

This bass was replaced a 2nd time and the same finishing problem existed and the strap button pilot hole was ready to fall out from being drilled to big, I am very disappointed in the finishing part of the bass, seems a supervisor with skills like I have is needed, For I got a rebate to fix it myself and it is way better now and will hold up forever!

      Comments about Ibanez SR300E Electric Bass Guitar:

      I got this in Metallic Gray and it doesn't quite match the picture, but it does look beautiful. This bass is fun as heck to play, and great for the price. However, even after breaking in the strings and setting the action, the frets still buzz. That's my only real compaint about the bass. It's great for the beginner and intermediate, but I would say not quite for the professional player. Overall a good bass and would recommend.

      • Whatever you want it for

      Comments about Ibanez SR300E Electric Bass Guitar:

      It was set up nicely right out of the box, I'm a drummer, bass is a secondary instrument to me so value/quality matters a lot, this one plays more easily than others I've owned in this price range and sounds as good as any. I got the new "Iron" finish (a very dark almost black gray), which is cooler than I expected because on line you cannot see that it has tiny metal flake. Finish is basically flawless.

          Lightweight, thin neck and great action. I switched to flat wound strings and got that smooth feel and big bottom I wanted. Played right out of the box at an outdoor gig and delivered - I had to retune in between songs, but expected with a new instrument and hot, humid outdoor rock show. Solid value and quality for the money.

          Comments about Ibanez SR300E Electric Bass Guitar:

          I loved it at first glance and was a no brainer when buying it. When I inspected it I came to realize that the details had some misinformation, like how it is Active. I also was a little disappointed in the unplugged noise it made, it sounded really tinny and was pretty quiet so you basically have to plugged it in an Amp. It is extremely light weight ( I can lift the whole Bass by the headstock), It has many knobs to control your sound, and it is a fun Bass to use when recording.

          Comments about Ibanez SR300E Electric Bass Guitar:

          I can't give this bass enough stars. Seeing as it is my first active bass and I've only played and owned passive before. You can write away hear the difference. I also added some Ernie Ball hybrid slinky to it
