Product Description
From the innovative Ibanez Bass Workshop team, comes the SRSC805 "Cerro." Boasting a design that integrates body to neck like no other, the upper bout connects the body to the neck all the way to the 13th fret. More compact than other basses of its type, the five-string SRSC805 requires less effort to maneuver, yet still provides the unique features and tone of larger models.

At the heart of the SRSC805 is a Mahogany body with a handsome Poplar Burl top shaped with the sinuous contours of the SR body style. A Neck-Through SR5 5-piece Maple/Purpleheart neck with a Purpleheart fretboard provides a smooth, fast playing surface. The slightly smaller extended upper horn of the SRSC805 makes contact with the neck from the 24th to the 13th fret, providing maximum stability and increased sustain. The back of the neck is sculpted for comfort and easy access to the very highest notes of the G string. The smooth, graceful contour allows the palm of the left hand to move quickly and easily as it transitions up the neck, into the underside of the instruments body. The Mono-Rail V bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, allowing each string to vibrate independently with less interference from sympathetic vibration.

The full, clear tone of Bartolini MK-1 pickups provides a tight bottom end with a mid-range that is articulate without being harsh. The Ibanez Custom 3-band EQ w/ bypass switch & mid-freq switch puts a full range of tone at the players fingertips.

Reviews From Buyers
First off, this bass is sexy! Second, it plays better than it looks! With 3 way EQ, front rear MK-1 Bartaloni, active passive switch, and a 3 way mid switch you can get just about any sound that you want. Bass/Mid boost, treble and blend in the middle, mid switch at 250hz(middle position) gives a real fat funky tone. I was worried about how the Purple Heart fretboard would sound because I've never played on one before, but I've got to say I'm impressed with it. I have 2 other basses with rosewood and maple fretboards, I'd have to say Purple Heart is in the middle as far as brightness and warmth of tone goes. The mono rail v bridge really does its job of isolating the strings, and does it well! I wasn't sure about how the tone would be with it being a neck through because I've played a neck through before, it sounded way too punk rock for me. But with this one it feels balanced, the preamp and pickups can really cut through to the tone you want. The playability is amazing! Mine came with the string action set as low as possible, the strings that come with it are superb(I've have to find out what strings are on this beast), and the cutaway make it so easy to play on the upper octave. As far as weight goes this bass is not heavy. And it's well balanced so if you strapped in and let go of the neck, the neck doesn't drop down. With the bass being light it doesn't take away from the sustain at all so no worries there. Actually the sustain is amazing. It came with a manual, some alan keys to make adjustments to the bridge and trus rod, and an instrument cable(a very very crampy instrument cable, I guess it's there for when you get to excited to play your new bass you forget were your cables are) Overall I'm very happy with this bass. There aren't a lot of reviews out there for it yet, and I ALWAYS check the reviews. But I'm glad I made this gamble without seeing other customers opinions on this bass. I've played higher dollar basses but have never liked the tone and playability as much as this one. If you are interested in getting this bass my "two cents" for you would be, if you like the way it looks, you'll love the way it plays. I guess I'm an Ibanez guy, and it only took 11 years to figure that out....
