Product Description

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 5-string version is a huge upgrade in playability and tone. The SR505 models feature a fast SR5 neck (jatoba/bubinga), a mahogany body, and Bartolini MK1 pickups. Onboard Bartolini 3-band EQ provides precise tone control.

SR505 Series Features

  • Thinner necks with thinner nuts than traditional basses.
  • Sleek bodies that are lightweight, balanced and comfort contoured.
  • Active EQ's perfectly matched with the right choice of passive or active pickups.

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 is my new Best Friend
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
I doubt this guitar will ever break on me. No problems with the finishes. The mahogany makes this guitar. Is almost red,. Lots of Sustain and bright highs.

FEATURES:
The pickups are smokin' hot. The EQ on this is a blessing. I don't use any effects. I play direct because if I want it, I can get it from this bass. Sometimes I think this bass is too light(in a good way)

EASE OF USE:
Very playable neck. Good string space for my hands.

VALUE:
Well worth the price 580 ish for all this? I'd pay $700 plus for this quality.

SOUND:
This bass don't need anyy effects. Everything you need is there. Bright highs, Tight mids, Dark lows. Very good bass.

Best bass for my $$$

This is the best part of this bass. It makes every sound I need GREAT.

OVERALL:
I love this Bass. I played my 64 jazz bass until 2004, I hope I live long enough to Play this one that long. If I get another Bass it will be an Ibanez 6 string.
