IBANEZ SRFF805 BKS Fanned Fret 5 string bass, body-ash, neck-jatoba/bubinga, HH Bartolini, black
For 25 years the SR has given bass players a modern alternative. With its continued popularity, Ibanez is constantly endeavoring to answer the wider needs of a variety of players, at a variety of budgets. But no matter what the specs, the heart is the same-SR continues to excite with its smooth, fast neck, lightweight body, and perfectly matched electronics.
Equalized tension helps to create a more "alive", open tone. But the design also improves player comfort. The slant of the fanned frets ergonomically coordinates with the way a player's hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.
Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band eq w/Eq bypass switch & Mid frequency switch
Precision tonal control, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypasses activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
Mono-rail V bridge
The Mono-rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
5pc Jatoba/Bubinga neck
Two of the most rigid and musical hardwoods set against one another to provide a thin neck with reliable long-term harmony.
Bartolini® BH1 Pickups
Balancing clarity with warmth is the hallmark of the Bartolini® BH1 pickup. Coils with lower resonant frequency provide tighter bottom end and a fuller midrange. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.
