The SR500E is a highly playable, great sounding option for players who want professional specs, at an intermediate price. It features expert Ibanez design, exceptional build specifications, and amazing electronics.

Expert Ibanez Design
With a simple aesthetic, you may not recognize right away how much this bass has under the hood. The lightweight body of the SR500E is built from okoume, shaped into a comfortable double cutaway design. It's got an SR4 5-piece jatoba/walnut neck and extended neck joint, affording top-notch sustain and stability. The fretboard is a smooth jatoba, made to feel great on the fingers, from top to bottom.

Exceptional Build Specifications
This bass sports 24 medium frets, as well as elegantly designed abalone oval inlays. The bridge is a simple, functional Accu-Cast B500, which can be adjusted to change the string spacing. Ibanez machine heads sit atop the headstock, affording a cool aesthetic and making it easy to keep your instrument in tune.

Amazing Electronics
The electronics on this bass take it to the next level. For starters, it's got some awesome sounding Bartolini BH2 pickups. These pickups were engineered to afford smooth, low-end tone. Perhaps even more impressive is the range of customization you can achieve on the bass itself with the Ibanez Custom electronics. There's a 3-band EQ so you can adjust boost/cut on the bass, mid, and treble. There's also an EQ Bypass switch and a 3-way mid-frequency switch that lets you select from 250Hz, 450Hz, or 700Hz. With this plethora of options, you won't be lacking in any sound you're seeking.
