Product Description

The Ibanez SR500 Electric Bass Guitar brings an unheard of tone to this price range.
Since 1987, bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and the speed of the fastest neck available have made Soundgear standard equipment in every genre. As music evolves, so does the Soundgear concept. The SR500 family is one example of this evolution. The 4-string version is a huge upgrade in playability and tone. The SR500 models feature a fast SR4 neck, a mahogany body, and Bartolini MK1 pickups. Onboard Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ provides precise tone control.

SR Series Features

  • Thinner necks with thinner nuts than traditional basses.
  • Sleek bodies that are lightweight, balanced and comfort contoured.
  • Bartolini MK-1 pickups
  • Ibanez Custom 3 band EQ with mid-frequency switch
  • Mid-frequency select switch enables you to instantly select 250Hz, 450Hz or 700Hz
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • Mahogany body
Jatoba/Bubinga Slim Neck
Coupling Jatoba with Bubinga has made the neck strong and stable despite its thinness.

Bartolini® MK1 Pickups
The MK1 pickups are split coil designs that provides a very wide frequency range and enhanced definition for maximum accuracy. The Neck and Bridge pickups have equal response, like traditional single coils, but without the hum and noise.

Sleek, sexy and sonically versatile are the reasons Soundgears can be found in every kind of music from gospel to goth to garage rock. Bassists who want the power and versatility of active electronics and fastest neck available have made the Soundgear standard equipment in the most controlled studio environments and the most out-of-control live performances.

Ibanez M100C Case Ibanez MB100C Style Case
To protect and transport your bass, Ibanez recommends the optional MB100C Style Electric Bass Guitar Case (#IBA MB100C).

All around great bass!

What is your opinion of this product?
Very pleased with this new bass. I have now switched to this being my main bass from a playing a American jazz 4 string bass. I can play up and down the neck with such speed. The sound is full and punchy with these pickups. I highly recommend this bass even if you've been playing higher priced basses. Would buy again!

ibanez basses....for beginners
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
Its made fine and is what you would expect for the price

FEATURES:
this thing is easy to play but it sounds really really cheap!

EASE OF USE:
its easy, only two of the knobs change the sound, the others dont seem to do anything

VALUE:
no, it should have been 200 dollars considering that my first bass that i ever bought was about 150 and sounded better than this muddy jumble of crap

SOUND:
the sound is the absolute worst i have ever heard on any bass period. every note sounds dead. there is no high end whatsoever. ibanez basses are not for slapping, they are for low end only type music ...like metal or gospel...if you want any type of bite or personality to your tone dont buy ibanez because you will only get a muddy junky sounding bass

STYLE:
funk, jazz, punk, classical

MUSIC EXPERIENCE:
I've played for 12 years, 8 in an amatuer orchestra and just as many in g

I recomend this Bass to anybody, beginner to Pro
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
This is a very good quality Bass, that would be hard to beat for the price. And would certainly gig with it once I get a little more experience in Bass playing. The quality control is very good anytime you see the name Ibanez, as I have never had any problems with Ibanez that I have seen. I expect this Bass to last quite a long time

FEATURES:
Not much to talk about here other then the very good Bartolini Pickups, which could use a little more output, but that can be taken care of in the future, but they are very good none the less. It has a 3 EQ Bass, Mid and Treble Control

EASE OF USE:
I love the Necks on Ibanez Basses, especially for somebody who has somewhat fat and short fingers, it makes a world of difference

VALUE:
I done a Trade in of a washburn T24 which has a wider neck to get this Ibanez SR500, and I am sure glad I did, it makes a differnce in my playing skills, that's the value to me, worth every b
