Ibanez SR305DX Bass

With the most comfortable, slim, 5-string neck you can find, the SR305 is the ideal way for 4-string bass players to make the transition to the expanded range, and new styles of the 5-string bass. This is a great bass for pros to have as a backup, too. Its DX5 pickups deliver a full range sound that's great for any style of music. The electronics consist of an advanced Phat Boost system with Volume, Balance, Phat EQ, and Tone controls. Other features include a 3-piece Maple neck, 24-fret Rosewood fingerboard and chrome hardware.

Features
SR5 neck: Only 20.5mm thick at the first fret, 34 in. scale, SR5 & SR6 necks provide more comfortable playing than standard "log" 5 and 6 string necks. The bolted-on All Access neck joint allows the easy access to the upper frets associated with set-in and neck-thru joints.

Agathis body: A relative of Mahogany with similar tonal characteristics, Agathis provides warm lows with strong sustain.

Medium frets: For more fretboard sound and easier note bending.

Standard 5 bridge: Vintage style bridge with simplicity of operation.

DX5N neck pickup: Calibrated for the neck position, the Active Dynamix 5N is an active humbucking pickup with a ceramic magnet with 2 different sized bobbins for even string output. Quiet, dynamic, and punchy.

DX5B bridge pickup: Calibrated for the bridge position, the Active Dynamix 5N is an active humbucking pickup with a ceramic magnet with 2 different sized bobbins for even string output. Quiet, dynamic, and punchy.

Phat EQ: Simple, one-control active circuitry boosts the right balance of lows and highs for fatter tone.

CUSTOMER

Sound: I give it a 9 because the low B seems to not 'pick up' that clearly, but I did buy it second hand, so it might be a pick-up height adjustment. Aside from that, this has got to be one of the better sounding basses out there. Plus, active pick-ups make the difference. Not bad for stock pick-ups! Feature: With all the tone knobs, I feel I can get that ;just right' sound. I had owned an old Ibanez TR-50 (which is an awsome bass for being a 'beginner' bass) and that thing only had 1 volume, 1 tone. So this is ALOT better. Quality: Well, I'm getting frett buzz, I heightened the bridge, and it took care of alot of it, but I'm still getting some through. I think after I get some different strings it should clear up. But, then again, it might have been something the previous owner screwed up. Value: Better than alot basses I see between $800-$1,200. For it's cost, and because it's a 5-string, you really can't find a better bass. The stock active pick-ups really are amazing for being stock. over all, unless you want to pay over a grand, get this bass! Manufacturer Support: never had to deal with them. The Wow Factor: I got the black model, and with all the black, and the chrome acessories, it has a real nice look. plus it's aerodynamic-like, so its sleek and smooth to the touch. Overall: I don't think I will be buying any other bass, although I might buy the silver one also to keep as a back-up, alt. tuning bass.

Overall: I bought the sr305dx on a whim I didn't have much money to spend so I took a stab at it and got it. I'm glad I did this bass is great to play no complaints at all the low b was a bit of a problem so I did a set up myself anyway the b is fine now I'm telling you if you have a chance definatly try this bass out I never thought of buying it never really liked ibanez much I had an ibanez iceman before and the sr305 blows it away easy!! And yes I know what I'm talking about I've been playing over 20 years this bass is also very versatile if you know how to eq your amp then trust me this bass is for you!! My hats off to ibanez for this one.
Style of Music: I play just about anything especially metal blues hard rock old school country jazz classical etc...
