The construction of the SR1405E’s mahogany body with a figured maple top creates a solid, well-balanced tone. An additional striking visual detail is the Atlas 5 neck which consists of alternating layers of wenge and bubinga. The SR1405E has tone, playability and stability for years to come.

Professional players and gear reviewers alike have been singing the praises of the SR1405E bass because it is surprisingly light in weight—a noticeable contrast to the instrument’s thick sonic character. That big, bold, tonal personality is due largely to a pair of Nordstrand Big Single pickups—the kind well acquainted with boutique instruments. No matter what musical texture is desired, the Ibanez Custom 3-Band EQ, with EQ bypass and mid-frequency switch, will get there fast.
Crafted by the Ibanez Premium luthiers, the SR1405 shares many of the high-end appointments of the much-respected Prestige line. This extraordinary attention to detail manifests itself in features like super-smooth hand-crimped frets, and the Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge— an ingeniously designed unit that kills off unwanted sympathetic vibrations while isolating and optimizing favorable string harmonics.
