SR basses are the most easily recognised of the Ibanez bass range with their uniquely accessible double cutaway shape. The SR series offers a modern alternative to traditional bass design; they’ve got lightweight bodies, smooth fast necks and perfectly-matched electronics that’ll allow you to perform under any circumstances. And the SR405EQM-DEB is no exception to this winning formula!
Ibanez have used Nyatoh for the body, delivering a full-bodied sound with a healthy dose of mid-range potency. This material is also relatively lightweight; combine this with the SR405EQM's small, curved body design, and you've got an extremely ergonomic, easy-to-play bass at your disposal!
The slim-profile neck uses a combination of Maple and Walnut in a 5-piece configuration, as with much of the SR range. This ensures stability and durability over a longer period of usage, not to mention a bright tonal response with plenty of sustain thanks to the Jatoba fretboard.
Electronics & Hardware
The Ibanez PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups are made with exposed stainless steel pole pieces, which give you pristine clarity and a strong signal. They're perfect for when you want your bass tone to really shine through in the mix, and the dual-coil design gives you plenty of power and authority too!
Again, Ibanez has made use of their flexible 3-band EQ and 3-way power tap switch for this model. This gives you the ability to truly tame the lows, mids and highs, with single coil tones, pickup blending, and a wide frequency range to play with.
Their Accu-Cast B305 Bridge uses extra-wide string slots, perfect for accommodating thicker gauge strings. It's also designed with superior intonation and tuning stability in mind, with excellent resonance to boot. All of these things point to an instrument that's aimed squarely at the modern player on a budget!
