Cover Plenty of Tonal Ground with this Five-String Bass!With five-string range and tons of tonal tweaking options, the Ibanez SR1205E is ready for almost any stage. Player-friendly features like the Mono-Rail IV bridge only add to this bass's gig-ready aesthetic.
An Exotic Top to Set the Stage for ToneCrafted in Ibanez's Premium facility in Indonesia, the SR1205E combines a mahogany body for naturally warm sound with an ovangkol top. An African tonewood, ovangkol has similar properties to rosewood, and delivers full midrange with a bright treble reminiscent of some maple tops. The thin body has slight sculpting to improve playing comfort, and a deep cutaway to allow you to experience the wide range of notes available.
Big Single Pickups Bring Big SoundIbanez loaded the SR1205E with two American-made Nordstrand Big Single pickups. These single-coil pickups are paired with an EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ, giving you a huge tonal palette to work with. Dial in your dream bass tone, from snarling treble that cuts through the mix to warm and mellow jazz rhythm sounds. Flicking the mid-frequency switch allows you to instantly change the midrange presence in your sound, and the EQ bypass switch will give you a tonally neutral sound.
Premium Appointments Enhance ExperienceAs a member of Ibanez's Premium line, the SR1206E features several components designed to give players the experience of a professional player's instrument. The 5-piece wenge/bubinga neck is wide enough to fit all five strings, but sculpted thin for playing comfort. The neck is reinforced with KTS titanium rods to ensure any adjustments you make are retained. The Mono-Rail IV bridge features six independently secured saddles for each string to promote maximum resonance and reduce interference between strings.

Product DescriptionIf you've been saving up for a pro level 5-string lefty bass, we've got good news: you don't have to wait anymore. Professional players and gear reviewers alike have been singing the praises of the SR Premium series since its introduction. Crafted in the Ibanez Premium facility in Indonesia, the SR1205 shares many of the high-end appointments of the much respected Prestige line. This extraordinary attention to detail manifests itself in features like the super-smooth hand crimped frets, and the Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge, an ingeniously designed unit that kills off unwanted sympathetic vibrations while isolating and optimizing the vibration of the plucked string.
The SR1205EVNFL's Mahogany body is topped with Ovangkol and has a silky, vintage, flat natural finish that brings out the quality of the wood, and the smooth, solid, easy playing feeling of a five-piece Wenge/Bubinga neck. Abalone fretboard inlays complete the visual statement.
In keeping with the SR concept, this bass is surprisingly light in weight--a noticeable contrast to the instrument's thick sonic character. That big, bold, tonal personality is due largely to a pair of Nordstrand "Big Single" pickups--the kind well acquainted with boutique instruments. No matter what musical texture is desired, the EQB IIISC 3-Band EQ, with EQ bypass and mid-frequency switch, will get there fast.
