Expert Review

You’ve got the extra string, so you should be able to have full range of access to all the notes on a 5-string bass guitar. That was a primary concern that Ibanez had when they made their SR505 bass guitar, whose bolt-on neck gives bassists easy access to the upper frets (24 in total) that are normally a bit harder to reach on other guitars of this caliber. The all mahogany body provides a deeply rich sound that has become synonymous with Ibanez bass guitars, while the rosewood fingerboard gives the frets a smooth and easy feel that will have you gliding around without a care in the world.

The Ibanez SR505 is equipped with Bartolini MK-1 pickups in the neck and bridge position. These electronics are packaged with a 3-Band EQ that allows players to sculpt the sound emanating from their strings with precision and character. And finally, the single-crew saddle height adjustment allows players to have better stability and firmness than normally allocated in standard double-screw designs. In short, this axe allows you to readily explore the possibilities of an extreme low-end that’s only attainable via a 5-string bass guitar.Rating: 4.5/5
