A Modern 5-string Single-cutaway Soundgear

The Ibanez SRSC805 5-string electric bass's thin 5-piece maple and purpleheart neck is one of the fastest necks in its class. It boasts fluid playability and effortless upper frets access. The mahogany body with burl poplar top is comfortable for hours of playing and gets a sustain boost from the added mass of the upper bout. And the Ibanez SRSC805's Bartolini pickups and Ibanez MK-1 3-band EQ will dial in earthshaking lows and crystal-clear highs with ease. The SRSC805 is a boutique 5-string with a ton of sonic firepower.

Built for tone and comfort

The Soundgear series from Ibanez offers players a sleek alternative to many popular basses on the market today. The SRSC805's contoured mahogany body with poplar burl top provides a warm, woody tone that accentuates the instrument's low end. Its thin construction and rounded profile help the bass hug the curves of your body for exceptional comfort. And the upper bout adds sustain to your tone as well as reinforcing the bass's neck for fantastic stability.

Fast neck for nimble runs

The Ibanez SRSC805 boasts an effortlessly playable 5-piece maple and purpleheart neck. The neck's thin and narrow contour is a favorite among many bassists, especially here at Sweetwater. Its 5-piece construction and massive neck to body contact is very stable under environmental stresses. And the abalone inlays on the purpleheart fingerboard pairs beautifully with the neck woods and poplar/mahogany body to complete the picture. And the body's lower cutaway is deep enough to offer great upper-fret access.

Flexible Bartolini electronics

Thanks to the Bartolini MK-1 pickups and Ibanez EQB-IIIS 3-band EQ, there are an incredibly wide range of tones available in this 5-string bass. Soloing the neck pickup with a bit of a bass boost is wonderful for reggae. Just scoop the mids for a very modern slap tone. Or grab a pick, and this system will easily elicit a great hard rock drive. The SRSC805 is great for players who find themselves hopping from genre to genre, or who just want to take total control of their sound.

Ibanez SRSC805 Single-cutaway 5-string Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • 5-string active bass guitar
  • Extended upper bout is great for stability and sustain
  • SR4 5-piece maple/purpleheart neck is fast and stable
  • Bartolini MK-1 pickups and EQB-IIIS preamp offer wide tonal control

Don't Even Think About NOT Buying This Bass!

I've been playing bass for 25+ years, and I sat down with this one at a music store and within about 5 notes, I knew I had to have it. Fit and finish, action and playability are amazing. The sustain and flexibility of sounds are incredible. It fits me perfectly and is just beautiful to look at. Even my wife likes it!
Music background: 30+ years playing guitar and bass

Great bass, Excellent service

This bass looks and sounds incredible. I have owned it for about 6 months and absolutely love it. Also the sevice I received from James was above and beyond what most plaaces provide.
Music background: Praise band musician

A great jazz axe.

I've really fallen in love with this instrument. It's beautiful in appearance, but more importantly, the neck through and single cutaway combined with the Bartolini pickups give it a clarity and sustain that's just wonderful. The low B is tight and well balanced, as good or better as the 34 inch basses. For some reason, this 5 string neck seems a lot more comfortable and natural to me than others I've owned. It has a remarkable range of tonal possibilities as well. On my gig, we do a lot of straight ahead jazz, along with some funk and soul. I'm called on to solo quite a bit, and the tonal flexibility of this bass is terrific. Great axe with a lot of versatility. As always Kevin and Sweetwater were just fantastic.
Music background: Full time professional musician, private teacher, and college music professor for nearly 50 years.

Truly Amazing Bass!

Occasionally, something wonderful finds its way into existence. This bass is one . First... It's lite. For a five string that sounds this tight, punchy and flexible, you'd think it was heavier. Indispensable if you hop around town doing gigs all night. Second. It's stunning to look at. ( I have the one in this ad and the pic doesn't do it justice ) Third. The quality of workmanship and design says a lot about what Ibanez wants to puts in the hands of musicians. Thanks to Mark B. and all at Sweetwater. Great job
