Ibanez SR306E Electric Bass, 6-String

Unlock new range in your playing with the Ibanez SR306E. This 6-string bass features PowerSpan dual coil pickups to clearly translate your riffs and solos.
For 25 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. Embraced by bassists over the decades, the iconic series continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body and perfectly matched electronics.

The Ibanez SR306EB is a handsome 6-string bass designed for the experienced player. The bass starts with an immaculately finished Mahogany body. Other features include a sturdy 5-piece Maple/Walnut SR4 neck, a jatoba fretboard, and an Accu-cast B125 bridge for superior string vibration transfer and precise intonation. Black hardware adds a hint of stealth.

At the heart of the SR306EB's electronics are two PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups. Their stainless pole pieces offer higher output, clarity, and fullness than any in the SR305's class. Accessed by the 3-way "Power Tap" switch, these proprietary pickups offer a choice of three tonal personalities: A rich humbucker sound, a pure single-coil sound, or an enhanced single coil sound-- fattened by lows from the humbucker pickups. Add the ability to dial in precise tone preferences via the Ibanez Custom 3-band EQ, and the SR306EB is a musical chameleon.

"Great Bass and Great Value!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
If you’re on the fence about getting this bass just get it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed! It sounds great and plays great. I received it in late February of 2020 and due to climate and altitude changes from where it shipped to and from I did have to do minimal truss rods (yes there are 2 in the neck) adjustments for some string buzz on the first fret. This came supplied with the necessary tools and instructions in the manual which made it easy. You can get so many tones out of this bass, from “old school” thump to modern metal with all of the controls. My band mates have all praised how great this bass sounds. Haven’t been able to gig with it yet due to current events (review written in September 2020) but am looking forward to when I will be able to. It is quite large and a little heavy so if that is an issue it may not feel right for you, but for me it’s great! I purchased a Gator TSA Bass Case for this as well which fits it perfectly . Overall it sounds great, plays great, no sharp frets, or issues with intonation. If you are willing to do a little work or pay someone to adjust the truss rods if needed, you will have a great 6 string bass.

Sound
This bass works great with my playing and musical style. Make sure to utilize the controls correctly for its fullest potential and experiment with this and your other gear.

Ease of Use
Very easy to get good sounds from this bass, you just have to play read more with the controls and don’t crank everything to 11.

Quality
This bass is made well, however with it being a natural finish with only a “stain” and no lacquer coating having dings or knicks in certain parts of the body may show more pronounced in the long run, but hey some battle scars give character to your instrument!

Value
This bass is worth it and so much more. Whether you are a beginner looking to get into playing a 6 string bass or a seasoned vet you won’t break the bank with this purchase.

Manufacturer Support
I have had no need to reach out to the manufacturer and don’t think I will have to.
