Bensalem, PA (August 31, 2015) -- For 2015, Ibanez is introducing two new SR500 Series basses designed for the advanced player. The SR500TFF and the SR505TFF are 4 and 5-string basses featuring Mahogany bodies with a traditional Tri-Fade Burst Flat finish. Other features include a sturdy 5-piece Jatoba/Bubinga SR neck, a Rosewood fretboard, and a B300 series bridge for superior string vibration transfer and precise intonation.

Electronics include two Bartolini MK1 pickups, designed to deliver a full, punchy tone with a clear, articulate top end. Equalization is handled by the EQB-IIIS 3-band EQ, which includes a 2-way mid-frequency selector switch that focuses the mids control at either 250 or 600hz. This feature aids the player in quickly accessing more useful, popular bass tones. For over 25 years the smooth, fast neck, lightweight body and perfectly matched electronics of the iconic SR Series has continued to grow in popularity among working musicians looking for excellent performance and value.
