Tremendous Bass Value

What a beauty - and tonal monster. The Ibanez SR1805E electric bass guitar proves that striking looks and timeless bass tone don't have to cost a fortune. Indeed, the SR1805E is an outstanding value. Start with that mahogany body, topped with flame maple and rosewood. Great looks. Then add in the smooth-playing 5-piece Wenge/Bubinga neck, decked out with a rosewood fingerboard and abalone oval inlays. This is one great-looking, great-playing bass. Still, the SR1805E's first priority is tone, and that's just what the two Nordstrand Big Single pickups deliver. And with the 3-band EQ, you'll have more than enough tonal and shaping power to hit the stage or studio with any band. Any musician at Sweetwater will agree, the Ibanez SR1805E is a great bass guitar.

Ibanez SR1805E 5-string Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Precision-made with great tonewoods
  • Great tone from Norstrand pickups
  • Mono-rail IV bridge enhances definition
Precision-made with great tonewoods

Ibanez makes some very fine instruments, including the SR1805E five-string bass. Ibanez chose a mahogany body for exceptional low-end impact and rich sustain. It's topped with rosewood wings and flamed maple center pieces, a striking look that also enhances your tone. And the five-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 Big Single pickups

Whether you're playing slap-heavy funk, or warmly muted reggae tones, the SR1805E's pair of Nordstrand Big Single pickups have you covered. These pickups have a rich and solid character to them, with powerful sound-shaping potential from the onboard EQ-IIISC 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 IV bridge enhances definition

The SR1805E packs the ultra-innovative Mono-rail IV 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.

Ibanez SR1805E Five-string Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • Fast-playing bass with premium tonewoods
  • Gorgeous looks from the mahogany body topped with rosewood wings and flame maple centers
  • Long-term reliability from the 5-pc SR5 wenge/bubinga neck
  • Awesome sustain and note separation from the Mono-rail IV bridge
  • Big bold tone from Nordstrand Bing Single pickups
  • EQB-IIISC 3-band EQ for fine-tuning your tone
  • Includes Deluxe gig-bag
The Ibanez SR1805E is a premium performer!

A killer bass

I bought it one day. Swapped out the factory strings for some D'Adderio nickle rounds. Made a couple string and pick up adjustments with their handy tool kit they supplied. Played a 4 hour gig the next night and it blew me, my band mates and friends in the audience away. When they claim it's a tonal monster the aren't exaggerating. I have a Yamaha BB2000 and a German Warwick Corvette and it kills both of them. I tried out more expensive Fenders, Music Man and an Ibanez Prestige and it killed those too!! The Music Man was close but this guitar won on lighter weight, thinner neck and the super wide range of tonal control. You cannot go wrong with this one. A killer bass for a killer value.
