Overview

For 25 years the SR305 has given bass players a modern alternative. With its continued popularity, Ibanez is constantly endeavoring to answer the wider needs of a variety of players, at a variety of budgets. But no matter what the specs, the heart is the same-SR continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.

The B120 bridge's extra-wide string slots can accommodate even the heaviest of gauges. Walls and channels of the new bridge plate effectively "trap" the saddles, ensuring perfect directional uniformity. The arched construction of the EXF-N2 pickup exemplifies Ibanez common-sense innovation. The arched design sets each string at equal distance to the pickup, resulting in balanced volume output. In terms of sonic character, these humbuckers are often described as "punchy." Their high quality shielding eliminates unwanted noise. The EQB-IIID is an improvement on the concept of simple EQ control. Boost and cut of Mid Control are each centered on a slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.

Comments about Ibanez SR305 5-String Electric Bass:

I really love this bass. I've been wanting a five string for awhile, and after my experiences with a four string Epiphone, switching to this one has been amazing. The neck is slim so my hands didn't need much of an adjustment period for the five strings versus four, and I really love the way it looks in general. I also love that it's well balanced, as my previous Epiphone was not. (Neck dive is awful).

    Comments about Ibanez SR305 5-String Electric Bass:

    I just got this bass the other day new, and being new to Ibanez basses I wasn't sure about how it would hold up, but I've been blown away by how amazing this bass is. For value for the price Ibanez can't be beat, and this is a quality instrument. The action right off of the shelf is perfect, the knobs feel solid and the Powerspan pickups are really good as they are. Plus in addition to the three band EQ with a bass mid and treble boost the power tap switch adds even more tonal option's. Flip it up for single coil mode on the pickups, all the way down for enhanced single coil mode, and the middle position sets them to humbucking mode. The one I got was in root beer metallic which is a nice finish, and all around this is a great bass. I would recommend this bass to anyone looking for a new bass or to upgrade or anyone in general. Thank you for reading, and I hope this helps.
