The SR505EPB is a five string Soundgear series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in 2019. It was made in Indonesia as part of the standard line. It is a spot model which was sold exclusively by US retailers Guitar Center and Musician's Friend.

The SR505EPB features a poplar burl top on a double-cutaway okoume body bolted to a jatoba and walnut neck with a 24-fret jatoba fingerboard with abalone oval position markers. Components include a pair of Bartolini BH2 passive pickups with an Ibanez custom preamp with a bypassable three-band EQ, an Accu-cast bridge with 16.5 mm string spacing, a plastic nut and Ibanez tuning machines.

The SR505E is a similar model without the poplar burl top. The SR500EPB is a similar five string model. The SR505EZW is a similar model with a zebra wood top.

The SR505EPB was discontinued after 2020.
