The SR13005B is a Soundgear series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2016. It was made in Indonesia as part of the mid-tier Premium line. It was a spot model which never appeared in a catalog; it may have been produced exclusively for US retailer Sweetwater.

The SR1305B features an ash and walnut top on a double-cutaway mahogany body bolted to a titanium reinforced wenge and bubinga Atlas neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and abalone oval position markers. Components include a pair of Nordstrand Big Single passive pickups with an Ibanez custom preamp with a three-band EQ, a Mono-rail bridge with 16.5mm string spacing, a GraphTech Black TUSQ nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

The SR1300B is a similar four string model. The SR1305 is a nearly identical model with gold hardware. The SR1705B is a similar model with a walnut and flamed maple top.

The SR1305B was discontinued after 2017.
