Ibanez SR605 Soundgear 5- String Bass, in a Natural Flat Finish
For more than 30 years now, the SR range of instruments from Ibanez have given modern bassists a range of alternative, comfortable-to-play bass guitars at a variety of budget-levels.
Whether your budget is in the "My first ever bass" range, or you're a working musician looking to splash out on a premium-grade instrument, the SR series has you covered. Regardless of the bass guitar's specs, SR basses have a reputation for their smooth, fast necks, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.
Highly Versatile 5-String Bass
With the Ibanez SR605 you get an incredibly versatile 5-string bass guitar, with a gorgeous natural flat ash finish to the body, an Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ, super-fast and smooth Jatoba/Bubinga neck, and a pair of Bartolini MK1 pickups.
MK1 pickups from Bartolini provide you with a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style magnets help maximise the articulation of your playing, and the specially designed long blade pole pieces provide you with balanced string to string pickup response.
Part of what makes this bass so versatile is the Ibanez 3-band active EQ - allowing you to shape your tone to your heart's desire - complimented by the awesome Mid Frequency Switch. This switch allows you to determine which mid-range frequencies are cut or boosted, offering you a wide variety of tonal variatians that can enhance your playing, regardless of how complex or straightforward it is.
Value for Money
Whilst this bass is edging towards the lower-end of the Professional-Quality market as far as the price goes, this is completely overshadowed by the amount of quality experienced when playing one. I own the 4-string equivalent of this bass, and regardless of what else I've experienced since buying it, I always come back to it. Sleek, lightweight, incredibly comfortable to play, perfect intonation at every point of the fretboard, and with a neck that's so smooth and slim you will be hard-pressed to find a more complete playing experience.
