Question about Ibanez SR Series SR305 5String Electric Bass Guitar

Open Question

My Ibanez SR 305 bass bridge is broken

There is a slight crack inside the bridge where the head of the string gets locked, so due to this the whole bridge has to be replaced. Is there an alternative solution or if not where can it be purchased?

SOURCE: When I lower the bridge of my ibanez grg170dxbkn

if its your truss rod this is how u adjust it. remove the 3 screws on the plastic piece directly behind the nut bridge. rotate the allen head a qtr of a turn to the right NO MORE THAN A QTR TURN!!!!. let set for preferably 48 hrs (24 would be ok if no more adjusting is required) to allow the neck time to adjust. repeat if necessary.... any more than a qtr turn could cause the neck to twist or crack. have patience after each turn and let it set!!!

Replace it with the same size as the original and the original type. The 100 sounds right for the E. Make sure it is the SAME type string as there are non magnetic for some guitars and if you have magnetic pickups the bronze types won't work. There are also round wound, flat wound and some are flattened on one side. You need to make sure the replacement is exact type. Take sample of old to show store clerk.

I have an IBANEZ AEG10E with an Ibanez SST Fishman pickup. The problem is the lower three strings are not as loud as the Higher three strings when connected to an amp or mixer.


Assuming you have the bass eq turned up, the problem will be in the pickup rather than the preamp . It's easiest to just replace it.

High action even though neck is straight. I have also messed with the bridge saddles and not much has changed except it gives fret buzz when i lower the saddles just a little bit. Is high action a common...


Sounds like you need to get it intonated. Take it to your local guitar shop tell them your problem and where you'd like your strings to sit or that straight neck of yours won't be like that for long.

Ibanez intonation problem


Hi there. Use guitar tuner. Pluck string in open position. Tune. Now pluck same string at 12th fret. If tuner says flat, adjust bridge for that string towards neck. Towards bridge if sharp. Repeat procedure until in tune at open and 12th fret. Go to next string and repeat procedure.
Thanks

When I lower the bridge of my ibanez grg170dxbkn to the required action of the strings(2mm bass)(1.5mm treble) my strings on the treble side produce a buzzing sound mostly on the 12 fret...do i need to...


I can understand it a bit of a daunting task setting up these guitars (I have bought at least 5 like this) But yes it might be the truss rod ... Without looking at the guitar myself its hard to say ... If you tighten the truss rod remember how much you turned the allen wrench because if it doesnt work your going to need to reset it and start again ... Remember to turn it the right way! and if all else fails ... If your near me (Bournemouth, South of the UK) then you can always pop on over to mine and I can take a look at it.

Failing that just take it to your nearest guitar repair shop and a setup should cost you about £30 if your in the UK.
