Best Value for Money Ibanez!
01.05.2015
What an amazing instrument Ibanez has produced over here! I cannot even begin to describe what an amazing piece of instrument this one here is. I have been playing bass for approx 12 years now and currently own the following; Fender Jazz Bass, Tanglewood Jazz Bass and a Yamaha TRBX 505 TBN. Just to spice things ups, I had always wanted to try out this SR505 and finally got to do it.

Feel: This bad boy feels so light you will be surprised, very comfortable to use ad play for (presumably) long gigs. Neck also feels awesome and width of neck, which is thinner than standard 5-stringers, makes ease of access for jamming around.

Body: the mahogany body is perfect, sound resonates incredibly great and the mahogany makes it sound strong and stable. The finish of the body is also wonderful, a rather matte finish to the mahogany, makes this an amazing assett.

Sound: and for the best part of this review. The Ibanez collaboration with Bartolini is why I always wanted this instrument. Always had a soft spot for the amazingly versatile sound of Bartolini, I can play virtually any style I want with this bass. I play funk, jazz, metal, pop-rock. Anything you can think of this instrument is a perfect all rounder which still ensures the player that sound will remain constant.

You need to fiddle a bit around the 3-band EQ to find your ideal sound, however once you do so, it will play like a charm.

For those of you who are looking for an amazing value for money bass which plays wonderfully, look no more. This bad boy here is all you can ask for

I love this bass!!!
05.01.2016
This is the first bass I've owned that's over 200 euros. It's amazing as a person with hurt knees I am amazed by the light weight of it despite being made of African woods. This is also my first modern style bass, I love the sleekness and the overall form of it. Due to the cutaway I can even reach the higher notes on the lower string. I played the bass through various amps and played with the EQ, I must say the sustain is amazing and long lasting and the tone variations from the EQ are amazing. As a person who uses finger, pick and slap techniques the Bartolini pickups give the right sound to everything. Out of so many basses I've played both cheap and expensive I feel most comfortable with this one and it is now a prime item in my collection. 10/10
