The SR300E is a Soundgear series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez for 2016. It is made in Indonesia as part of the standard line. It replaced the SR300.

The SR300E features a double-cutaway mahogany body bolted to a maple and rosewood neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez PowerSpan passive pickups with an Ibanez custom preamp with a Power Tap switch and a three-band EQ, an Accu-cast bridge with 19mm string spacing, a plastic nut and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2018 the maple and rosewood neck was replaced with maple and walnut and the rosewood fingerboard was replaced with jatoba. For 2019 the mahogany body was replaced with nyatoh.

The SR305E is a similar five string model. The SR300EL is a left-handed version. The SR300EB is a similar model with black hardware.
