Pick up the SR305E, and you'll quickly discover that Ibanez didn't sacrifice quality on its mission to create a value-packed bass for today's demanding player. 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 comfortably arched nato body. A pair of Ibanez PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups packs a phenomenal punch, while a 3-band EQ with Power Tap creates a vast array of tone-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 from Sweetwater is an outstanding value.
Ibanez's SR series of electric bass guitars has long been regarded for its sleek lines and fast playability. The SR305E's body boasts that iconic sculpted design that seems to naturally hug your body without 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.
The SR305E's active pickups deliver a huge palette of bass tones. 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, or a blend of the two, to further extend the SR305E's tonal capacity.
