A Premium 5-string Playing Experience

The Ibanez SR5005 5-string electric bass guitar brings a premium performer to the SR Prestige Series lineup! In addition to its well-balanced mahogany body (sandwiched between a wenge top and back), the SR5005 includes a 5-piece wenge/bubinga Atlas-5 HP neck (topped with a wenge fingerboard) that's as fast as it is comfortable. Abalone and pearl appointments add a touch of elegance. This bass's pair of Bartolini Custom pickups provide stellar tone for all kinds of styles, and you can get the most out of them with the Power Curve 3-band EQ (with a bypass switch) built into the Ibanez SR5005.

Ibanez SR5005 5-string Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Mono-Rail IV bridge enhances definition
  • Precision-made with great tonewoods
  • Great tone from Bartolini pickups and 3-band EQ
Mono-Rail IV bridge enhances definition

At Ibanez, there's genius in the details. Like the SR5005's 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.

Precision-made with great tonewoods

Ibanez makes some very fine instruments, and the SR5005 bass is no exception. Ibanez chose a mahogany body for exceptional low-end impact and rich sustain. It's sandwiched between layers of wenge, a striking look that also enhances your tone. And the five-piece wenge/bubinga through 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 Bartolini pickups and 3-band EQ

Ibanez SR5005 basses come out of the factory with Bartolini pickups and preamps installed. The humbucking Bartolini Custom pickups serve up a warm tone with superior dynamic range, giving you a punchy sound that can be shaped for a variety of styles. A 3-band EQ lets you dial in the perfect sound you have been looking for. It doesn't matter what style of music you play, the Ibanez SR5005 is ready for the gig.

Ibanez SR5005 5-string Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • Smooth-playing bass guitar with exceptional tonal flexibility
  • Atlas-5 HP neck plays fast, with a multi-layer design for maximum rigidity and long-term reliability
  • Exceptional note definition thanks to the Mono-Rail IV bridge
  • Fat tone from Bartolini Custom pickups, with powerful tone shaping with the 3-band EQ
  • Hardshell case included
Create the bass tone you've always wanted with the Ibanez SR5005!

Best bass I've owned!!!

I purchased this SR5005 after looking and reading various reviews about the Prestige line. First off the pictures doesn't do these basses justice because the Wenge is beautiful. The tone and feel of this instrument blows me away and beat out basses I've owned that was 2-3 times the cost. I've had people after shows come up to me raving on the sound of this bass. I will never part with this and Ibanez has an amazing bass line here.
