Product Description

All standard SR300 and SR370 models feature the B120 Bridge. String installation has never been easier-the B120's extra-wide string slots can accommodate even the heaviest of gauges. Walls and channels of the bridge plate effectively "trap" the saddles, ensuring perfect directional uniformity.

For 25 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. With its continued popularity, Ibanez is constantly endeavoring to answer the wider needs of a variety of players, at a variety of budgets. But no matter what the specs, the heart is the same-SR continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.

When you get serious about playing bass, your decision on your next bass will determine your entire carrier as a bassist. Do you compromise its feature for affordability? Or do you step up to the more expensive higher end bass? The SR300M is your ultimate choice with uncompromising features and unmatched affordability. It features the same-SR smooth and fast neck, which is reinforced with 5 piece Maple/Rosewood woods. The sleek arched lightweight Agathis body gives you the ultimate in playing comfort. The CAP EXF-N2 pickups give you some serious growl and in combination with the EQB-IIID 3-band eq, you'll get any sound you want. The SR300M also features a Maple fretboard for additional attack.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Ibanez products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (31 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "You've found the bass that you are going to buy."
Sound: This bass sounds phenomenal. You won't find a better bass in the price range and could even spend more on poorer sounding basses. Between the tone shaping knobs on the bass itself and your amp, you will definitely be able to find your perfect tone. Feature: This bass has everything it needs and nothing more. Everything it has functions perfectly and is incredibly useful. Ease of Use: This bass plays beautifully. The neck is nearly as thin as my Schecter Omen 6. All frets are pretty easily accessible. Beware if you are a sloppier player as this bass can be unforgiving at times. The Active pick-ups make sure everything is heard. Quality: Everything on this bass is solid and well made, my only gripe is that there are a few parts on the neck that feel like they weren't sanded as well as they could have been. Value: Best bass in the price range by a mile. Holds its own with basses twice the price. Manufacturer Support: Have not had to deal with them so I suppose that is good. The Wow Factor: It is an attractive, easy to play bass for a steal of a price. Overall: I would re buy this bass in a heartbeat if anything were to happen to it.
Style of Music: Metal, anything else with a good bassline

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "well designed bass for the intermediate bassist"
Sound: Punchy and a clean noise, unforgiving if your a lazy bassist though. I play mainly punk with a bit of traditional folk music, on top of some metal here and there. This bass handles all my playing styles with still more flair left over, and I would say this sounds much better than the comparable yamaha RBX374 for more punk or funk playing styles, although I'd still recommend the RBX for metal players for the awesome rumble it throws out. Feature: From owning older ibanez's (GSR200+205, EDB500 for ref) and a yamaha RBX, this bass wins hands down for features. The "style sweeper" works well for me, I change styles frequently and gives the sound I want. The twotier dial for bass/treble boost and cutouts means less fiddling with amps and one hell of a useful tool for modifying your sound. My only gripe is I would prefer to have individual control over the pickups volume rather than a fader. Rosewood neck and 24 frets are good, there is a maple neck varient but I'm not one to judge difference between the two. Ease of Use: The thin, thin neck on this bass makes playing all those bass solos a breeze, from metallica to paul simon and is definatly designed for the frantic bassist. If your into playing the root note of the guitarist and no more, the thin neck might not be your thing and would be a bit of a waste you. The bass is lightweight so wont break your back and the dials are intuitive after a few plays. Quality: The ibanez's I've come across so far tend to have pretty good build quality and are always well set up. Electronics can be a bit on the weak side on some models and may need to be reworked a couple of years down the line. Value: Like all ibanez's, undervalued for the great sound and versatility they give. Come on, do you really think a fender P bass is worth it for the one sound? Image and history counts for nothing to me, its what it does that works for me. Manufacturer Support: I've dealt with Ibanez a few times over the years, quick to send out parts and deal with repairs pretty quickly. The Wow Factor: Smooth looking bass with good ergonomics. But come on ibanez, only 3 pretty bland colours (at time of writing, 09, only white, black or red). I don't want to have tkeep on respraying every bass and guitar I get from them beacause of the poor choice. Overall: Great value bass with a great sound, suitable for gigging and intermediates. I'd suggest people to choose a cheaper bass as a first instrument, from other reviews I've noticed people don't appreaciate this bass to its full extent and that is a shame.
Style of Music: Punk, tradional scottish/Irish. See "cowboy bebop" for more influence
