Pick up the Ibanez SR300E electric bass and you'll quickly discover that Ibanez didn't sacrifice quality to bring you a value-packed instrument. The experience of playing the SR300E is much like that of Ibanez's higher-end SR Series models, thanks to the SR300E's sleek 5-piece maple/rosewood neck and comfortable mahogany arched body. A pair of Ibanez PowerSpan humbucking pickups packs a phenomenal punch, while a 3-band EQ with Power Tap creates a vast array of sound-shaping possibilities. The SR300E is a great instrument budding bass players or as a reliable backup you'll be glad you have.
Ibanez's SR line of electric bass guitars have long been considered one of the most comfortable instruments for players who appreciate sleek lines and fast playability. The SR300E's body boasts that iconic, sculpted body that seems to naturally hug your body while performing without ever getting in the way of your performance. The SR neck features a narrow nut and thin contour, aiding in quick string skipping and moving up and down the fretboard with ease. And you'll love the feel of the bass's rounded contours.
Ibanez outfitted their SR300E electric bass guitars with an active 3-band preamp that also features a 3-way Power Tap switch. These electronics harness the power of the bass's PowerSpan Dual-coil neck and bridge pickups, while adding plenty of tone-shifting options. The Power Tap switch changes between humbucking and single-coil performance and a blend of the two to further extend the SR300E's tonal range. The electronics onboard the SR300E make it a whole lot of bass for a great value.
The tonewoods chosen for Ibanez's SR300E electric bass guitar are the same you'll find on many high-end basses around the world. The body is carved from warm and midrange-focused mahogany. This is a great wood for ensuring plenty of low-end power with long sustain. The famous SR neck features a 5-piece construction made from maple and rosewood. The neck rings wonderfully while maintaining its structural integrity with no problems. These woods are definitely favorites at Music Experience, and we think you'll agree.
For 30 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. With its continued popularity, Ibanez is constantly endeavoring to answer the wider needs of a variety of players, at a variety of budgets. But no matter what the specs, the heart is the same-SR continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.

The B120's extra-wide string slots can accommodate even the heaviest of gauges. Walls and channels of the new bridge plate effectively "trap" the saddles, ensuring perfect directional uniformity.
The 3-band EQ works in conjunction with a coil tap switch for maximum control over a wide variety of professional bass tones. Tap Mode (single coil) creates a punchy, dynamic sound with superior articulation. Series Mode (humbucking) delivers a full, warm tone, and Power Tap Mode provides the best of both worlds-combining the clarity of the single coil with the fat bottom end of the humbucker.
Developed by Ibanez, the exposed pole pieces of the PowerSpan Dual Coil pickups produce a stronger signal, and increase the response of the higher frequencies without sacrificing low end. The result is a tone rich in harmonic detail and dynamic expression.
The Ibanez SR300E electric bass is packed with value and performance.
