- 5pc Maple/Walnut Neck:
The 5pc Maple/Walnut neck provides tonal clarity and superior attack.

Jatoba has a reddish brown color and produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.

- Medium Frets:
Medium sized frets enhance the accuracy of your notes.

- Poplar Burl Top / Nyatoh body:
The Poplar Burl top features an exotic wood grain and the Nyatoh body provides a rich mid-low end.

- PowerSpan Dual Coil Pickups:
Developed by Ibanez, the exposed pole pieces of the PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups produce a stronger signal and increase the response of the higher frequencies without sacrificing low end. The result is a tone rich in harmonic detail and dynamic expression.

- Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-Band EQ:
The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is Ibanez's latest refinement on the concept of simple, straightforward, no-nonsense EQ control. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centered on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.

- Accu-Cast B500 Series Bridge:
The Accu-cast B500 bridge has adjustable saddles for variable read more string spacing by +/- 1.5mm, answering every bassist's specific string spacing needs.

- 3-Way Power Tap Switch:
Accessed by the 3-way Power Tap switch, the 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.

I owned an SR305 and I absolutely loved it. Played great out of the box and the tones were solid. It was a great starter bass. I wanted a new 4-string upgrade to my old pawn store special bass and I found this guy. It's pretty and had the same pickups as my old Ibanez so I thought I'd give it a try. That lasted exactly one evening. The truss rod was way way way out of whack and the neck was bent so far backwards, that the fret buzz was out of control pretty much everywhere. I adjusted as much as I could, but I could not get this thing comfortable to play. I was able to eliminate a lot of the fret buzz, but not all of it. The master volume knob was completely loose and I was surprised it hadn't been shoved into the cavity of the bass. It wasn't comfortable to play at all. I normally am a big fan of Ibanez basses, but this one missed the mark big time. I returned it and shelled out a little more for a Japanese Fender Jazz Bass Special and I'm a happy man now. Very disappointing, but I am not over Ibanez. This bass was/is beautiful and the pickups sounded ok, but the setup and the warped neck really let me down. I'm sure not all of these basses are as bad as the one I returned, but I'm just going off of my personal experience. My next bass will likely be an Ibanez, but I will shell out a little more for a premium bass.
