Rating and Reviews: Ibanez SR705 5-String

The angled pickups help to balance your output levels while the lightweight body and narrow neck keep your playing action fast and reduce gig-fatigue.

Overall: I honestly believe this is the best playing and sounding bass I've ever owned. I play bass to tuner to amp as is my preference. I purchased a factory "blemished" 705 (the blemish is on the back, is the size of a pinky fingernail, and looks like a smudge that can only be seen held up to the light), put on a set of heavy DDT strings, and took it to the local guitar shop to have it set up. I sounds great, feels great, and can take a beating without rattling, even with it's freakishly low action. I don't play with a pick, but I can get that pick played sound when it's called for. I highly recommend this bass, especially if you're looking for a plug and play. And if you're gear is gonna end up with whiskey dents anyway, by one with a factory blemish

Overall: I am very happy with my purchase of a Ibanez 705 SR 5 string bass. Love the low B. transaction with zZounds was about the smoothest I have ever had. I play through an 1001RB2 GK With 2 15in. cabs. and couldn't ask for a better sound. Thanks zZounds.

Overall: This Ibanez is sort of a surprise. It's not on par with the better custom makers out there using one off materials etc of course, but for a factory bass it rarely gets any better in terms of fit and finish. For the very reasonable price you get a bass made with a quality level of basses costing a lot more, very flexible tone and control, light weight, good looking, and an all around a huge value. Zzounds pay as you play works as advertised, very awesome, thanks.
