With its sleek, compact, comfortable, lightweight body, the SRH505 breaks another boundary to open up your playing. Unlike other hollow body basses, the SRH505 boasts a unique concept: the integration of the authentic feel expected in a hollow body and the key features that distinguish SRH as a contemporary bass.
Ibanez Bass Workshop SRH505 5-String Bass Guitar Features
- Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides
- 55 mm-thick semi-hollow body
- Rosewood fretboard
- AeroSilk Piezo system
With its maximized hollow space, Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, the 55 mm-thick semi-hollow body delivers a rich acoustic tone. The specially designed forearm contour on the body top offers playing comfort and adds an elegant accent to its appearance. A Rosewood fretboard with offset position markers, caps a 5pc Jatoba/ Bubinga neck with a contoured neck heel that creates a deep neck joint with unfettered access to the upper frets. The custom bridge contains the magic of the AeroSilk Piezo system, which works with D'Addario ECB81 flat wound strings to provide that sense of air that characterizes upright sound.
