Product Description

The Ibanez SR505L left-handed model features the same awesome appointments as its right-handed brother, complete with Bartolini MK1 pickups and 3-band EQ, and a fast bubinga and jatoba neck.

Since 1987, bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and the speed of the fastest neck available have made Soundgear standard equipment in every genre. As music evolves, so does the Soundgear concept. The SR500 family is one example of this evolution. The 5-string version is a huge upgrade in playability and tone.

Features

- Thinner necks with thinner nuts than traditional basses.
- Sleek bodies that are lightweight, balanced and comfort contoured.
- Active EQ's perfectly matched with the right choice of passive or active pickups.

Sleek, sexy and sonically versatile are the reasons Soundgears can be found in every kind of music from gospel to goth to garage rock. Bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and fastest neck available have made the Soundgear standard equipment in the most controlled studio environments and the most out-of-control live performances.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "LEFTIES, LOOK NO FUTHER!"
Sound: This is the first bass I've ever bought with active electronics, and I have to say, I'll never go back to passive pickups. The combination of pickups and woods on this bass is perfect; you get bright highs, punchy mids, and beautifully clear lows. Lastly, with the 3 band EQ, you can create pretty much any tone you want. Feature: The 3 band EQ rocks, the tuners are great, the smoke grey hardware looks great with the finish, and it comes factory equipped with Elixirs! Ease of Use: The controls have a great setup; it has volume, tone(shifts between the 2 pickups, and a low, mid and high boost/cut. This bass also has the best neck I've ever played on. It's so thin and fast, my 5 string feels like a 4 string neck. The fret work extremely smooth and well-crafted. Quality: Great craftsmanship, great tone woods, and great electronics. My only complaint here is it has a cheap looking plastic nut. Value: I used to be a die hard Fender fan, but Ibanez "converted" me with this bass. Finally, high end features for a mid-range price, lefties finally have a quality bass. Manufacturer Support: Never really dealt with them... Overall: Like I've been saying, a solid bass for lefties (and all of you right handers,too) at a great price that plays like a dream. There is no competition.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Top shelf 5 string at a bottom shelf price!!!!"
Sound: my live rig is an SWR 400 watt head, and a hartke 4200 pro cab, also i'm running a BBE sonic max and a hartke bass attack pre-amp pedal. this bass is amazing in everyway, and i've owned 3 warwicks and a roscoe, all of which were great basses but no better sounding or playing than the ibanez sr505 i just purchased. The neck was perfectly straight right outta the box, and that's never happened before. i've always had to adjust them, and the saddles to my taste. Feature: The bartolinis are the best money can buy. enough said! the hardware is all top shelf! Ease of Use: the neck is fast, and smooth. one of the easiest basses i've owned to play, and to adjust to get the sound i'm after. the pickups are very expressive. Quality: this bass is made for the road, which is where it's heading with my band. the neck joint is tight( that's a big plus!)the bridge is perfectly straight on the body, the black nickel hardware looks phenominal! the pots all have detents, and are all very tight and responsive. I'm so impressed with this bass! can you tell? Value: $629.00 for this bass is a steal, especially with all the top grade hardware and electronics it has, and the neck woods!!! The Wow Factor: well, i had 2 good basses that i used everyday, and they are both being sold on ebay as i write this. 2 basses gone. this one bass is all i need. Overall: if this bass were stolen or lost, i'd be on the phone with zzsounds ordering another just like it. i chose this bass for the features. i've always loved ibanez basses, but i'm a lefty and they didn't cater to lefties in the 5 string market until recently, and they have built a high quality 5 string for the lefty masses to enjoy.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
