Ibanez SR305 5-String Electric Bass

The Ibanez SR305 is a no-nonsense bass offering buil quality and tone not often seen on basses in this price range. With a 5-piece Maple/Rosewood neck and a pair of EXF-N2 pickups, the SR305 is a real player's bass.

Since 1987, trends have come and gone. But the fast and versatile Soundgear basses continue to lay down the groove in every style imaginable in every venue possible. Now in 2008, Ibanez offers a vast array of different Soundgear models including neck-thru-body, fretless and left-handed. For 2008, all SR300 models have been upgraded with 3-band Style Sweeper EQs. The 2008 Soundgear narrow neck is perfect for 5- and 6-strings so extended range travel is as physically comfortable as it is musically exhilarating. Now, everyone who has ever desired a premier bass can afford an SR with pro features. Viva La Bass! Viva Ibanez!

Thinner necks with thinner nuts than traditional basses. Lightweight, balanced, comfort-contoured bodies. Versatile EXF angled pickups have equal spacing between pickup to string for balanced output levels. GSR models with high output pickups offer famous Soundgear pro comfort and playability at "entry-level" prices.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (37 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Beginners should buy! Pros should change electronics."
Sound: This is the only place this bass really fails at. Beginners can disregard what I'm about to say here, but Pros please listen! The Phat EQ electronics that the earlier Soundgears came with were way better. The highs on this bass are way too tinny and when you boost up the low end, the whole thing becomes way too boomy. It boasts being able to produce many different sounds for different styles, but none of them are that great. I only found one tone that's usable, but still haven't found a good balance that works across the whole fret board. Pre-amp is way too hot. Feature: The style sweeper knob is pointless. It only sounds good when it's all the way to one side. The controls aren't the most complicated I've seen, but I don't know why bass designers think that it should be more complicated than 1 Volume for neck pickup, 1 Volume for bridge pickup, and 1 Tone knob. I also don't like this style bridge. Ease of Use: This is by far the easiest, fastest and lightest bass I've ever played on! The neck is the thinnest I've ever played and it is just pure comfort! Quality: Beautiful all around. Feels sturdy and well-made. Value: For a beginner - it's an amazing value. For a pro - don't bother unless you're willing to change out the pickups and pre-amp. Manufacturer Support: No experience with this. The Wow Factor: Looks awesome! Very slick! Overall: It's very lightweight and plays better than any 5-string I've ever played! Looks sweet, too! The sound is just not up to par for someone that knows the difference, though.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good First 5 string"
Sound: I play this bass through a GK Backline 600/GLX Golline 4X10, directly into house (church). I use my amp as a monitor. Overall is sounds okay, I am still experimenting with it. Feature: I am still messing with the sweeper feature Ease of Use: This is my first real attempt at 5-string. I am getting use to it. It plays very fast. I have small hands so I love this neck. Quality: so far, no problems Value: Nice bass for a low price, so far the only thing I have had to do to it was swap the battery. If you are looking to explore 5 string I would get this one. Very fast neck. In fact, I think my next 4 string will be an Ibanez Manufacturer Support: ne need yet The Wow Factor: very sexy, and very comfortable light weight Overall: I bought this bass to play Gospel music at church. It is very comfrotable to play for a 5 string. I have tried some others and this one feels the best. The sound is good so far. My other bass is a Schector Elite 4 which sounds very good. I get lots of complements for it. Have not played this one at service yet
Style of Music: Christian/Gospel, rock

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
