Sweetwater Exclusive SR1305 with Black Hardware

Whether you slap, pick, or pluck, the Sweetwater Exclusive Ibanez SR1300EBTF four-string electric bass guitar will serve you well. You can expect the high-quality 5-piece wenge/bubinga neck to play straight and true for decades, resisting warping and twisting thanks to its KTS titanium rods. Big, punchy tone abounds from a pair of Nordstrand Big Single pickups, with powerful tone shaping offered by the custom 3-band EQ. Bass players at Sweetwater especially dig the SR1300EBTF's Mono-rail bridge, which isolates each string for maximum articulation and note definition.

Sweetwater Exclusive Ibanez SR1300EBTF 5-string Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Precision made with great tonewoods
  • Great tone from Nordstrand pickups
  • Mono-rail bridge enhances definition
Precision made with great tonewoods

Ibanez makes some very fine instruments, and the SR1300EBTF bass is no exception. Ibanez chose a mahogany body for exceptional low-end impact and rich sustain. It's finished with an ash/walnut top, a striking look that also enhances your tone. And the 5-piece wenge/bubinga neck with KTS titanium rods doesn't just look great, it's incredibly strong to resist warping and twisting over the years.

Great tone from Nordstrand pickups

Whether you're playing slap-heavy funk or warmly muted reggae tones, the SR1300EBTF's pair of Nordstrand Big Single pickups has you covered. These pickups have a rich and solid character to them, with powerful sound-shaping potential from the onboard 3-band EQ controls. You have control over boost/cut for bass, mid, and high frequencies, with a mid-frequency switch to fine-tune your midrange tone.

Mono-rail bridge enhances definition

At Ibanez, there's genius in the details. Like the SR1300EBTF's innovative Mono-rail bridge with locking saddles, which allows each string to fully vibrate without any interference with the other strings. That means that no matter how fast you play across the strings, each note will ring clear and true. And all of the hardware on the Ibanez SR1300EBTF is black to give the bass a straight-ahead look that will look as at home on a jazz trio gig as it will onstage with a metal band.

Sweetwater Exclusive Ibanez SR1300EBTF 5-string Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • Sweetwater Exclusive version of the SR1305 with black hardware
  • Fast-playing bass with premium tonewoods
  • Gorgeous looks from the mahogany body topped with ash and walnut
  • Long-term reliability and stability from the 5-piece Atlas-5 wenge/bubinga neck
  • Awesome sustain and note separation from the Mono-rail bridge
  • Big, bold tone from Nordstrand Big Single pickups
  • Custom 3-band EQ for fine-tuning your tone
The Ibanez SR1300EBTF is a premium performer.
