Product Description

The SR605 brings added thunder to the plate by providing the extra low-end to their already popular Soundgear basses. Ibanez' SR605 has all the same extra smooth action to give your low-end rhythms the feeling of silky tones but the ability to punish the ears with heavy grinding bass that makes an audience rock all night. You can find Ibanez Soundgear basses in every corner of the musical spectrum, due to its functionality and tonality that is only rivaled by its structure. The SR600 features Ibanez' Bartolini MK-1 pickups and a 3 band EQ to give you a well pronounced sound that's easy to control. Other features include a 5-piece, Jatoba/Bubinga SR5 neck, 24 Medium Jumbo frets and an Accu-Cast B20 bridge. Feel yourself float away in the tone of the SR605.

- 5 piece Jatoba/Bubinga neck

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "pro review"
Sound: the sound is warm and tight, for my style the bass is as solid as I have ever played Feature: I love the MK1s, and I especially like the MID cut/boost Ease of Use: How easy is it to get great sound..... just plug it in. It sounds like it belongs with my rack. Learning curve was about 2 minutes and playability.... outstanding Quality: seems like it is made well, but time will tell on this Value: compared with higher priced/higher end basses..... it was a steal Manufacturer Support: I have dealt with Hoshino before and my experience with them was fine The Wow Factor: I rate it a 4 because of the outstanding sound Overall: Honestly I am very surprised. I play a Conklin and the reason for trying out the Ibanez is the massive weight of the Conklin. The Conklin rep told me going from a Conklin to a Ibanez is like driving a BMW and trading it in for a Nissan. #1 I bought it online which for me was a iffy thing to do. When I got it, the setup was terrible..... I was shocked at the poor setup and immediately took it to a guitar tech to be setup and honestly what I got back was a bass that blows on my Conklin. Action almost as good as the Conklin.... A noticeably thinner neck!! I'm all about playability of the guitar and all things considered the SR 605 blows on my Conklin. So much so my Conklin is up for sale. The SR 605 is clean, warm and very tight. You can play an open low B and actually hear it rather then just be slapped by a low frequency. I love the Ash Body, its not lacquered so it breathes. The only difference between a 605, 705 or the 800 series is the wood the bodies made from and perhaps the bridge. The 605 was a steal for what I paid for it. I would highly recommend this bass to anyone beginner to Pro

"the best Sound gear of all"
Overall: I have tried all the prestige BTB and SR series and this is the one I like the most. The well-defined mixed with punch and a powerful/clear slap tone made it my best choice for me. Better than MTD kingstons, esp's ltd, music mans, Schecter's. I have tried them all and from the moment you plug this bass into the amp you can just tell this is the one.
