Ibanez Introduces New SR500 Series Basses
Ibanez has announced two new basses to their SR500 series with the SR500TFF and the SR505TFF. The basses, which are four- and five-string versions of the same model, feature mahogany bodies with a traditional Tri-Fade Burst Flat finish.
The neck on each bass is a five-piece laminate of jatoba and bubinga topped with a rosewood fretboard. Ibanez fits the basses with a pair of Bartolini MK1 pickups that they describe as “designed to deliver a full, punchy tone with a clear, articulate top end.” Electronics include a EQB-IIIS 3-band EQ complete with a 2-way mid-frequency selector switch that toggles the mid control between 250Hz and 600Hz.
The Ibanez SR500TFF and SR505TFF will be available soon with street prices of $599 and $649, respectively.
