This is an Ibanez SR 505 five-string electric bass, offered in almost unplayed condition. It has been set up to Ibanez factory specs and plays beautifully. The passive Bartolini Mk1 pickups are very well matched to the active tone controls, so the instrument will meet the demands of virtually any musical style. The neck is a joy to play - slim for fast runs, but solid for great tone and feel. This 2017 used example commonly retails new at over £500 without a case. This one, including a Hiscox bass guitar hard case, represents a significant saving on the new price.
