Awesome Bass for the Money!A solid instrument doesn't need to cost you a fortune. Ibanez knows this and has delivered guitars and basses that defy the price/performance ratio for years, and one of their most popular models has been the SR Series bass. The 5-string SR605 has all the makings of a serious instrument, but the price will blow you away. Listen to this: a light ash body gives you rich and warm tones - tones that are amplified by the Bartolini MK1 pickups. Yeah, that's right, Bartolini, one of the supreme bass pickup manufacturers. Plus, to shape your sound, you've got access to the EQB-IIIS 3-band active EQ.
All of this tone is for nothing if you can't play the darned thing, and the SR605's neck - a 5-piece beauty crafted from jabota and bubinga (say that five times fast!) - lets you cruise up and down the neck with ease. Chrome hardware and a rosewood fingerboard complete the picture. If you need a bass - a serious bass - but don't have a ton to spend, the Ibanez SR605 is an awesome choice.
