The innovative Ibanez Bass Workshop team is excited to introduce the SRSC805 “Cerro,” which includes an incredible upper bout connection of body to neck all the way to the 13th fret - a design unlike any other bass out there! More compact than other basses of its type, the five-string SRSC805 electric bass requires less effort to maneuver, yet still provides the unique features and tone of larger models.
Ibanez Bass Workshop SRSC805 Electric Bass Features
- 5-piece Maple/Purpleheart neck-through

- Bartolini MK-1 pickups for tight bottom end and focused mid-range tone
- Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ with bypass switch and mid-frequency switch
At the heart of the SRSC805 is a Mahogany body with a handsome Poplar Burl top shaped with the sinuous contours of the SR body style. A Neck-Through SR5 5-piece Maple/Purpleheart neck with a Purpleheart fretboard provides a smooth, fast playing surface. The slightly smaller extended upper horn of the SRSC805 makes contact with the neck from the 24th to the 13th fret, providing maximum stability and increased sustain. The back of the neck is sculpted for comfort and easy access to the very highest notes of the G string. The smooth, graceful contour allows the palm of the left hand to move quickly and easily as it transitions up the neck, into the underside of the instruments body. The Mono-Rail V bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, allowing each string to vibrate independently with less interference from sympathetic vibration.
The full, clear tone of Bartolini MK-1 pickups provides a tight bottom end with a mid-range that is articulate without being harsh. The Ibanez Custom 3-band EQ with a bypass switch and mid-frequency switch puts a full range of tone at the player’s fingertips.
