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 SR305E is a handsome 5-string bass designed for the experienced player. The bass starts with an immaculately finished mahogany body. Other features include a sturdy 5-piece maple/rosewood SR4 neck, a rosewood fretboard, and an Accu-cast B125 bridge for superior string vibration transfer and precise intonation. Cosmo black hardware adds a hint of stealth.

At the heart of the SR305E’s electronics are two PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups. Their stainless pole pieces offer higher output, clarity, and fullness than any in the SR305’s class. Accessed by the 3-way “Power Tap” switch, these proprietary pickups offer a choice of three tonal personalities: A rich humbucker sound, a pure single-coil sound, or an enhanced single coil sound— fattened by lows from the humbucker pickups. Add the ability to dial in precise tone preferences via the Ibanez Custom 3-band EQ, and the SR305E is a musical chameleon. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Ibanez SR305E 5-String Bass:

    I have really been looking forward to this bass, and was able to pick it up from the store just a few days before I left out of town. When I played it (without plugging it in), the feel was awesome. Then I realized it was tuned a full step low, and once I tuned it to standard tuning, the action completely changed - like the fretboard warped and that awesome action was no longer. Then, I plugged it into my current system, and the sound was distorted, played around and could not get the thing to sound good at all. I then A/B'ed my current bass in the same system, and it sounded fine. I was scratching my head... then needed to fly out on a business trip (which is where I'm at now). I think I'll need to bring it into the store, and see if I'm missing something - hope so. I really liked the look and feel of this bass, just hoping I can get the feel and sound the way I was expecting.
