2020 Ibanez Soundgear SR300E Active Electric Bass Guitar

Hoo, boy -- specs for price on these basses are crazy. It's got a 5-piece neck, metallic-grey finish, twin humbuckers, and a suite of active controls that let you dial-in just about every bass tone you can imagine. This bass is in here via consignment because its owner just did not take-up the instrument. It's thus basically as-new and comes with some nice goodies, too. I just gave it a quick setup to bring it in line as a player.

Anyhow, the controls...? There's a master volume knob, master "blend" (pickups) knob, and three-way switch to start. The first two are obvious but the mini-switch gives one "normal" series wiring or the option to coil-tap the pickups in two variations for cleaner, brighter sounds more like a standard Jazz Bass setup.

The other controls are a bank of three knobs -- bass boost/cut, mid boost/cut, or treble boost/cut. All of the knobs on the bass have "center" indents, too, to keep you aware of where "flat" EQ is.

Add to that a recessed, pocketed jack slot in the "Strat" position, an elongated jazz-fusion body style, a quick neck (also with Jazz Bass handling), and comfortable weight... and you've got quite the package here.
