What I really like about this bass other than the sound, which is great, is the slim neck. It makes for very easy fingering up and down the fretboard, especially for a 5 string, which often can have a very bulky feel.

Here is what Ibanez says about the SR505:

Ibanez SR series basses can handle the needs of every player from beginner to working pros. They are versatile enough to handle any style of music, and the signature "Slim & Fast" neck makes them one of the easiest basses to play on the market, even with 5 strings.
Due to the quality components that are used you will find that the SR505 feels, plays and sounds like a much more expensive instrument. The SR505 has a 5-piece Jatoba/Bubinga neck, mahogany body with smooth rounded edges, and an extreme, lower cutaway for easier access to the bottom frets. The BARTOLINI MK1 pickups provide high output with well balanced tone with each string and give you a great overall sound no matter what style you are into. And with 24 frets you have 4 octaves to get creative with!
This bass weighs 7.9 pounds.

What was refurbished on this bass?

 The certified refurbisher did not find any issues, all they did was give the bass a set up.

Check out my feedback to see why so many people buy at my shop!

A Guardian gig bag is available for $35 and a Guardian hard shell case is available for only $89 if purchased with the bass.

FAQ, frequently asked questions

Why are instruments sent to a refurbisher?  The instrument could be a discontinued model, have a finish imperfection, or need a minor repair.

Who refurbishes your instruments?  All of my instruments come from the largest and best refurbisher in the country, where any issue found is corrected by a factory trained and authorized luthier.

Does a refurbished instrument have the manufacturer warranty?  No, any instrument sent to a refurbisher, regardless of the reason it was sent there, no longer carries the manufacturer warranty.

Will I need to set up my instrument when I receive it?  All of my instruments have been set-up before shipping, so most are ready to play out of the box.  However some instruments may need a minor adjustment after shipping due to changes in temperature, humidity, and  getting bumped around during shipping.

What identifies an instrument as being refurbished?  All refurbished instruments have a small used stamp on the back of the head stock and are issued a new serial number.  This is to prevent an unethical dealer from concealing the fact that the instrument was sent to a refurbisher.
