Tonal versatility from a sleek 5-string.

The Ibanez SR305M bass guitar is the 5-string version of the SR300 making it an ideal first bass that will deliver tone you wouldn't expect from a starter instrument. The SR305M bass has a 5-piece SR5 maple/rosewood neck and light, agathis body with smooth rounded edges, and its extreme lower cutaway allows easier access to the upper frets. The EXF-N2 pickups and an upgraded 3-band EQ give you a great overall sound no matter what style you're into.

Accu-cast B120 Bridge
The B120'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.

CAP EXF-N2 Pickups
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." High quality shielding eliminates unwanted noise.

EQB-IIID 3-band EQ
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.

Case sold separately.

Comments about Ibanez SR305M 5-String Bass Guitar:

I'm mainly a 4 string player but wanted a "upgrade" from a cheap 5-er I owned. I was all set to spend a lot more but when I saw and played this baby I was sold. Like most Ibanez basses it has a very "hi-fi" tone. The pups aren't quite as rich as the Bartolinis on the more expensive models but they record well and can be beefed up with EQ live. You can hear a recording of it on my YouTube "plangentmusic" channel where I use it on an Elton John song. The B string is tight and responsive -- something rare on cheaper 5's. I like the slimmer neck on a 5 but it may be a bit too thin for some. The color is also stunning -- a pearl white that looks more like something you'd find on a boutique instrument. If you're looking for something that'll do the job for pretty much any style of playing, without breaking the bank, this is bass may be the answer.

    Comments about Ibanez SR305M 5-String Bass Guitar:

    This is the best bass I've ever played, and I've been playing for about 5 years, 2-3 hours every day. I've been looking for a five string for quite a while, and this bass delivers many perks beyond my expectations.

    Decent For The Price

    Comments about Ibanez SR305M 5-String Bass Guitar:

    There is a lot to like about this bass: The fit and finish are excellentIt is very nice lookingPlayability is very good (once it is setup)Its ight and balances well The neck is a great width for me (not to wide)
    So why not a "10" rating? Problems with string to string balance. G string is weak and sometimes I think the B is a little weak. I've adjusted string and pickup heights and got it so it is acceptable, but I would have returned it if the adjustments didn't helpThere is nothing special with the sound. It's OK and and it can get some nice deep tones, but overall, I'd say the sound is kind of generic.
    Excellent fit and finish
