A great bass at an even better price point with high caliber features and playability.
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 SR405BCW is a handsome 5-string bass designed for the advanced player. At its core is a Mahogany body with a beautiful Claro Walnut top. Known for its stunning figuring, Claro is also prized for its warm, balanced tonal qualities. Other features include a sturdy 5-piece Maple/Rosewood SR5 neck, a Rosewood fretboard, and an Accu-cast B305 bridge for superior string vibration transfer and precise intonation.
For electronics, the SR405BCW features two CAP EXF-N2 passive pickups. Designed by Ibanez, the top of the CAP EXF-N2 is arched to mirror the radius of the fretboard. This positions each string equally distant from the pickup resulting in a more linear, balanced output. Equalization chores are handled by Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band eq. This allows the control to be more effective in creating useful, popular bass tones.

Comments about Ibanez SR405BCW 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:
I've owned a lot of Ibanez Basses in my 15 years of playing music and I have to say this the best sounding 5 string that I've ever owned. I bought the 4 string version of this bass back in July from a local music store and was very impressed. I just recently purchased the 5 string version on MF. The sound of the active preamp is incredible, very Crisp and clear and the Claro Walnut/ Mahogany combination gives it better sustain than it's similar SR 5 string cousins in this price range. It's also very light weight and plays fast. The black hardware is also solid and adds to the streamlined look of the bass. These are now my two main basses I use for practice and gigging. The only concern I have is the Claro Walnut Top can be easily blemished, scratched or dented. I have to be extra careful when handling them when I switch them out between songs. I highly recommend this bass for Beginners, Pro's or weekend Musicians. Get Em' why they're hot! But remember Handle with Care.
