    For sale is my Korean made Ibanez SR505. This is the original SR505 5-string featuring the amazing varimid electronics that are found on their more high-end basses.

    This bass may look like any SR 5 string but this is a well designed bass with electronics that sound fantastic. Think Poor Man’s Wal or Alembic. The vari-mid provides that “filter-based” active sound that so many of us seek. It is a sweet sound!

    The mid control is a stacked knob with the bottom controlling the mid frequency and the top controlling a mid boost/cut. There is a lot of fine tuning you can do with this to get great tone ranging from a growly active sound to a fat, round, warm dub tone.

    This bass is fun to play. It is not too heavy, it balances nicely and the neck is real sleek and quick. In other words, this bass is easy to get around on. The B string is also nice and clear.

    The bass is in great condition. It is black so there is some very light, superficial scratching in a couple of rear spots that shows to the eye which I tried my best to picture. But any wear is really light and I would guess all of it would come out with some buffing. Check out the pics, they say it all.

    In addition to satisfying those seeking filter electronics, this would make a great first 5 string given the friendly price and the fact that it is easy to get around on.

    Asking $325 shipped conus for this one. Add $25 if you are on the west coast. I will ship in a gig bag, and I will pack bombproof!

    PM if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!

    Looks like my old bass. Did we do a deal on this? It was a great bass then I discovered 19mm string spacing or else I woulda kept it.

    It is @DWBass !! Good memory. It was 10 years ago. As I recall I also bought your headless Cort. Loved that bass.

    Rock on.
