Built for tone and comfort
The Soundgear series from Ibanez offers players a sleek alternative to the standard bass designs that have been around for half a century. The SR505E's contoured okoume body provides a warm, woody tone, and the fast neck is built to give players in any genre a comfortable playing experience. And the SR505E is lightweight, which means you'll enjoy the gig more, play better, and not have an aching shoulder afterward.
Fast neck for nimble runs
For the SR505E, Ibanez spec'd its supremely playable SR5-profile 5-piece jatoba/walnut neck. It feels great in your hand and offers effortless mobility up and down the fingerboard with great upper-fret access. The nut width is thinner than what you'll find on most 5-string bass necks, which further boosts the comfort factor. And the jatoba fingerboard pairs beautifully both sonically and visually with the neck and body woods.
Flexible Bartolini electronics
The Ibanez SR505E doesn't just play great and look great, it sounds amazing as well. The Bartolini BH2 humbucking pickups are paired with the custom Ibanez electronics that feature 3-band EQ for easily dialing in your tone. This is great if you find yourself hopping from genre to genre, or when you just want to take total control of your signature sound
