Ibanez's line of SR bass guitars has given bass players a modern alternative for 30 years, and the SRMS805 is no exception. 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.
SRMS FOR MULTI SCALE 5PC JATOBA/WALNUT NECK
Two of the most rigid and musical hardwoods set against one another to provide a thin neck with reliable long-term harmony.
Equalized tension helps to create a more "alive", open tone. But the design also improves player comfort. The multi scale construction ergonomically coordinates with the way a player's hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.
PANGA PANGA FRETBOARD
Panga Panga features a beautiful wood grain which produces a tight low and mid range with a sharp attack on the high end.
CUSTOM ELECTRONICS 3-BAND EQ
Precision tonal control, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypasses activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
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.
The saddles can be adjusted +/-1.5mm, to answer to the bassist's detailed demands and to help finding out the best string spacing for many playstyles.
