Ibanez Standard SR305E 5-string Bass Guitar – Midnight Gray Burst
5-string Electric Bass with Nyatoh Body, Maple/Walnut Neck, Jatoba Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups – Midnight Gray Burst
Affordable Bass with Upgraded Features
Pick up the Ibanez SR305E 5-string electric bass, and you’ll quickly discover that Ibanez didn’t sacrifice quality to bring you a value-packed instrument. The experience of playing the SR305E is much like that of Ibanez’s higher-end SR Series models, thanks to the SR305E’s sleek 5-piece maple/walnut neck and comfortable arched nayatoh body. A pair of Ibanez PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups packs a phenomenal punch, while the 3-band EQ with Power Tap creates a vast array of sound-shaping possibilities. Whether you’re a beginning bassist looking for your first quality instrument or a pro who needs a reliable backup, the Ibanez SR305E is an outstanding value.
Acclaimed SR feel
Ibanez’s SR line of electric bass guitars have long been considered one of the most comfortable instruments for players who appreciate sleek lines and fast playability. The SR305E’s body boasts that iconic, sculpted shape that seems to naturally hug your body without ever getting in the way of your performance. The SR neck features a narrow nut and thin contour, aiding in quick string skipping and moving up and down the fretboard with ease.
Sonically versatile electronics
The electronics onboard the SR305E deliver a huge palette of bass tone. Ibanez outfitted their SR305E electric bass guitars with an active 3-band preamp that also features a 3-way Power Tap switch. These electronics harness the power of the bass’s PowerSpan Dual Coil neck and bridge pickups, while adding plenty of tone-shifting options. The Power Tap switch changes between humbucking and single-coil performance and a blend of the two to further extend the SR305E’s tonal range.
Ibanez: a brief history
Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn’t get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the “Ibanez Salvador” name, which was later shortened to “Ibanez.” Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative guitars and had begun manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effect pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.
