The Ibanez SR305EDX 5-string bass is the 5-string version of the SR300EDX bass guitar. It's part of the legendary Ibanez SR Standard Series, which features smooth fast necks, lightweight, contoured bodies, and perfectly matched electronics.
The Ibanez SR305EDX boasts PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups with custom Ibanez electronics which boosts the tone up a notch. The high-octane PowerSpan Dual Coil (PDC) pickups produce a tone rich in harmonic detail and dynamic expression. The exposed pole pieces produce a stronger signal and increase the response of the higher frequencies without sacrificing the low end.
There are three modes on the SR305EDXRGC that work in union with the 3-band EQ and coil tap switch. This dual combination provides maximum control over a wide variety of professional bass tones. Tap Mode (single coil) creates a punchy, dynamic sound with superior articulation. Series Mode (humbucking) delivers a full, warm tone, and Power Tap Mode provides the best of both worlds幼ombining the clarity of the single coil with the fat bottom end of the humbucker.
The Accu-Cast B505 bridge on the SR305EDX has extra-wide string slots that can accommodate even heavy string gauges. The saddle design ensures the string will stay in the string channel, ensuring directional uniformity. This bridge design optimizes the transmission of string vibration and produces a rich tone with lasting sustain.
When Ibanez introduced the Soundgear bass over 30 years ago, it personified the Ibanez slogan - Anything But Traditional. At the time, Soundgear was the stuff of bass wizardry: lightweight, curvaceous, thin-necked and equipped with powerful and versatile active electronics - fantastic features probably never imagined by the pioneer electric bass players of the '50s.
The Ibanez SR305EDX 5-string bass guitar is an outstanding bass at an affordable price, and it has earned a reputation as a dependable and true performance 5-string bass. Contact Andy's Music and order yours today.
