SR405EQM Quilted Maple 5-String Electric Bass Guitar Surreal Blue Burst Gloss. 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 SR405EQM is a handsome 5-string bass designed for the experienced player. The bass starts with an immaculately finished Mahogany body topped with gorgeous quilted maple. Other features include a sturdy 5-piece Maple/Rosewood SR5 neck, a Rosewood fretboard, and a B305 bridge. Cosmo Black hardware adds a hint of stealth. At the heart of the SR405EQM's electronics are two PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups. Their stainless pole pieces offer higher output, clarity, and fullness than any in the SR405’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 SR405EQM is a musical chameleon.
