The Ibanez SR505ESBD is the 5-string version of the SR500E electric bass. It features a smooth fast neck, lightweight and contoured body, and Bartolini® BH2 pickups. The Ibanez SR Series bass has been a favorite among bassists for almost thirty years.
The SR505ESBD 5-string, a new addition to this classic series, features Bartolini® BH2 pickups that provide a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing a balanced string-to-string pickup response.
The Accu-cast B500 bridge has adjustable saddles for string spacing adjustments, answering every bassist’s individual string spacing demands. The saddles can be adjusted ±1.5mm. The saddle design ensures the string will stay in the string channel, ensuring directional uniformity.
When Ibanez introduced the Soundgear bass nearly 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.
