See All Ibanez 5 String Electric Bass

An affordable lightweight 5-string perfect for a working musician with CAP EXF-N2 pickups and EQB-IIID 3-band EQ.

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:

Been using it for 2 Years and 10 Mo, still satisfied no issues.
Been playing bass live and recording since the 70's Very light well balanced and has versatile sounds.

The neck is perfect for my hand size.
This 5 string is easier to play then many 4 stringers & has 24 frets
It amazes me that such a inexpensive bass can be so good.

Cons,Tone and Pickup Blend Detent has a light feel needs to be more positive

(note) if you like light gauge bass strings check out Roto Sound Funk Masters
