Product Highlights

Product Description

The innovative SR500E bass guitar delivers uncompromising tone and playability. For 30 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. With its continued popularity, Ibanez is constantly endeavoring to answer the wider needs of a variety of players, at a variety of budgets. But no matter what the specs, the heart is the same-SR continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.

5-Piece Jatoba/Walnut neck:

The 5-piece Jatoba/Walnut neck provides tonal clarity and superior attack.

Rosewood fretboard:

Rosewood fretboard provides a well-balanced solid tone with a focused mid range.

Medium frets:

Medium sized frets enhance the accuracy of your notes.

Okoume body:

The Okoume body provides a bright and solid sound.

Bartolini BH2 pickups:

The Bartolini BH2 pickups provide a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.

Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ:

The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is our latest refinement on the concept of simple, straightforward, no-nonsense EQ control. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centered on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.

Accu-cast B500 series bridge:

The Accu-cast B500 bridge has adjustable saddles for variable string spacing by +/- 1.5mm, answering every bassist’s specific string spacing needs.

EQ bypass switch (passive tone control on treble pot):

The EQ bypass control offers precision tonal adjustments, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.

3-way Mid frequency switch:

The 3-way Mid frequency switch allow players to change the mid-tone between 250, 450, and 700 Hz.
