5.0 stars based on 2 customer reviews

Sweetwater Advice

  • Jared Kalish

    I'm constantly impressed with the quality and playability of Ibanez basses, and this instrument is no exception. Killer looks, Bartolini custom pickups, abalone and pearl neck inlay AND the Mono-Rail IV bridge system? This bass rivals other instuments 5 times the price!

  • Mark Stein

    I just picked up the SR5000EOL because I wanted a 4-string with a thin, fast neck that sounded and looked great. The playability and build quality are second to none and the combinations of woods make this a beautiful instrument. This bass sounds great unplugged. It's voice is very clear and articulate with harmonics that jump off the fretboard. When I plugged it in I was impressed with how even the notes are up and down the neck. The Bartolini pickups are perfectly matched with this bass and the pre amp is offers a wide variety of tones. I love the feel of the oiled wood and rounded edges. The mahogany sandwiched in between the wenge and 5-piece neck contribute to the look and sound. This bass begs to be played and sounds as great as it looks!

    Gorgeous bass with a fast neck and IMMENSE sustain!

    The combination of tonewoods give this bass a wonderful voice full of sustain. It has the fastest neck I've ever had the privilege to play. I've owned Ibanez basses for nearly 30 years and they never disappoint. I decided to finally treat myself to the flagship bass, and I am very glad that I did. Excellent service and support is icing on the cake!

    This bass is beautiful and plays amazingly! Couldn't be happier with the bass or the service I recieved from Sweetwater. Will be a return buyer for sure!
