Overview

The Ibanez SR305 5-string electric bass guitar produces killer low end for a very favorable price. The solid agathis body offers tonal warmth and plenty of sustain, and the 5-piece maple/rosewood neck complements these qualities, giving each note a bold, rich clarity. The Ibanez bass's 34" scale, 12" radius, 1-3/4" nut width, and U-shape neck profile make it a very finger-friendly instrument.

At the heart of the Ibanez SR305 bass is its impressive electronics. The EXF-5 pickups feature a curved soapbar-style that mimics the roundness of the instrument's radius. This design presents improved string output balance, while the Style Sweeper EQ makes tone shaping easy. Whether anchored around the low end for funky bass punch, or dancing around the upper fret board for bright poppy bass, with the SR300, your sound always comes through loud and proud.

beautiful sound, good action

By Rey

from Laredo, TX

Comments about Ibanez SR305 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

I bought this at G.C. at Laredo, TX. I bought the one that is pewter color. I love the color and the controls of the sound of the bass guitar. You can actually tweak the sound from a low rumbling noise to a clear slapping sound. This is one of the best bass guitar I have ever bought and it is reasonably priced. Very smooth action on the neck. I also have a Rickenbacker bass that I bought in 1972, a Yamaha 5 string bass, an Ibanez 4 string bass and a Rogue 5 string bass. I use an SVT bass amp that I bought in the early seventies and recently bought a Galien-Kruger MB 210 bass amp. This SR305 bass guitar sounds good through both of my amps.

Great bass for the money

By James Franks

from Sylvania Twp, OH

Comments about Ibanez SR305 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

I recently received this bass as a graduation gift. It sounds and plays great. It is very light weight compared to the Jazz bass I'd been playing. The humbucking pickups provide incredible low end response and are dead silent when not being played, unlike my single coils on the Jazz. There are many tonal capabilities possible through use of the volume, balance, tone, and style sweeper knobs. I highly recommend this bass to anyone wanting high end playability and sound on a budget.

Really Good

By Arthur

from Acton MA

Comments about Ibanez SR305 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

Upgraded my Ibanez 4 strings (falling apart) to this. AWESOME. I played other basses at similar prices at guitar center but could not find one with such a defined sound. It has a nice metallicky sound which makes it ideal for metal and rock. I would not consider this bass so much for blues or jazz i would pick up the fender one instead (but only if it was to play blues or jazz). The pickups are the highlight along with its pretty light body. Only thing is that I eventually got a new set of lighter strings for it because the ones that come with it were pretty thick and were hurting my untrained amateur's fingers. With lighter strings it became a bit too metalicky but i adjusted my amp around it. I love my bass and its definitely worth buying it if you are looking for one at this price range. I have the black one and its simply a beautiful instrument

Great Buy

By AllSounds

from Orlando, Florida

Comments about Ibanez SR305 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

The bass does just about everything you need. I'm a R&B/funk bass player, but I am also in an alternative band for fun and I have recored both sounds wonderfully. The tone knobs get the sound you want for sure. It is a bit heavy, but usually the heavier the bass, the better the quality from what I've seen. For its price and what it does I would say this is a great buy, hasn't give me a single problem.

Satisfied

By John B

from Bonners Ferry, ID

Comments about Ibanez SR305 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

I love the way this bass sounds, and how I can get almost any sound out of it that I want. You can get the clear bass sound or the twang for slap. The strings are fairly close together so you can easily and quickly move from string to string. Especially people like me who have smaller hands. I've owned this bass for a couple months and I have encountered a few problems, first is that the plug in gets loose and it is extremely hard to tighten it. Also that the intonation on the G string was way wacked out. It wasn't too hard to fix although it sounded really bad until then. It just took a small allen wrench. The actual build of the bass is solid, except for the minor problem with the plug in I haven't had any problems with it. It isn't too heavy, nor too light, the head is slightly heavier than the body, but it won't nose dive if you let go of it. Overall a pretty nice bass. I would suggest buying it if you are on a tight budget. If not I suggest going for a Warwick bass.
