Comfortable design with active EQ.

The SR505E bass from Ibanez is sure to excite any player with its smooth, fast neck, a lightweight body (only 8 lb.!) and perfectly matched electronics. A thin, sturdy and stable jatoba/walnut neck offers superior playability when combined with the extended neck joint, making the upper frets easily accessible.

The SR505E is equipped with Bartolini BH2 pickups in a dual-coil-style configuration with a lower resonant frequency, providing a balanced, warm response with a tighter bottom end and a fuller midrange. The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ features a 3-way mid-frequency switch, allowing for precise tonal control (250Hz, 450Hz, and 700Hz) and an EQ bypass switch for passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.

Another feature on the SR505E is a B500 bridge has adjustable saddles for string spacing adjustments, answering every bassist's individual string spacing demands, no matter what playing style. The saddles can be adjusted +/-1.5 mm. The neck-end adjustment allows you to tweak the neck easily without loosening the strings.
