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 SR405EQM is a handsome 5-string bass designed for the advanced player. A stunning Quilted Maple adorns the bass, Mahogany body. Other features include a sturdy 5-piece Maple/Walnut SR5 neck, a jatoba fretboard, and an Accu-cast B305 bridge for superior string vibration transfer and precise intonation. Cosmo Black hardware adds a hint of stealth.

At the heart of the SR405EQM's electronics are two PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups. Their stainless pole pieces offer higher output, clarity, and fullness than any in the SR405'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 SR405EQM is a musical chameleon.

"Surprisingly good tone!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Ok this is a great intermediate bass! Has a tone that cuts like a knife through the mix!!! It is pretty brutal through my Darkglass Alpha Omega. I am very surprised by the pickups, I usually change factory one right away, but, these sound pretty awesome! Not as warm as a basswood body, this as more of a piano tone, very clear and even tone. The set up from the factory was really good as well, it was damn near still in tune when I recieved it! the only thing I was not all that impressed with was the figuring of the maple top, kinda dull and boring. but it sure plays nice!I would highly recommend this as a first bass or an upgrade! the neck is really fast and thin, with nicely dressed frets, very easy to play!!
