The perfect balance of thunderous low-end tone, comfort and playability
The Ibanez SR500E combines a sleek, modern body curves, Elegant tonewoods and versatile low-end tone. It offers a little something for everyone, no matter your experience or playing style.
- 3-band EQ with 3-way Mid freq. switch & EQ bypass switch
- Accu-cast B500 bridge(Adjustable Saddle for String Spacing)
- Neck end truss rod adjustment
- Okoume body
Super Fast Jatoba/Walnut Neck
The thin, sturdy and stable Jatoba/Walnut neck offers superior playability when combined with the extended neck joint, making the upper frets easily accessible. Ibanez SR Basses are notoriously fast to play, serving well for modern metal and heavy rock players. This is emphasised by a slightly thinner neck at the nut, aiding the comfort factor.
Flexible Bartolini BH2 Pickups
This SR500E is equipped with Bartolini BH2 pickups in a dual-coil style configuration with a lower resonant frequency, providing a balanced, warm response with a tighter bottom end and a fuller midrange.
Versatile EQ Section
The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ features a 3-way mid-frequency switch, allowing for precise tonal control (250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz) and an EQ bypass switch for passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
The fitted B500 bridge has adjustable saddles for string spacing adjustments, meaning you can modify it to your exact requirements. No matter how you play or what style you riff at - the SR500E has got you covered. The saddles can be adjusted +/-1.5mm. The neck-end adjustment allows you to tweak the neck easily.
