Ibanez SRFF805 fanned fret 5 string. Excellent bass, really easy to play and nice and light - only selling as I’ve recently made a big purchase and need to thin the herd so no trades sorry ! Comes with a gig bag so collection preferred but will pack up well if you wish to pay the postage.
The Ibanez SRFF805’s body is crafted from incredibly lightweight ash wood, offering excellent comfort with the ability to play all night long without shoulder strain. The ash tonewood provides a sweet, airy twang, with plenty of resonance for singing chords and powerful punching notes. Its firm lows, pleasing highs, and slightly scooped midrange suits a range of playing styles, but favours the harsh strikes of metal players.
Neck & Fingerboard
The eye-catching body is coupled with a 5-piece jatoba/walnut neck, offering comfort and stability while protecting against warping or twisting over time. Unlike other Ibanez basses, the SRFF805 5 String Bass features a panga panga fingerboard, which is a more sustainable tonewood than the commonly used rosewood. Panga panga is very similar to wenge and rosewood in both looks and tone. This substitute tonewood adds warmth and resonance to the overall tone, and provides a smooth platform for the left hand.
Multi-Scale Function Provides Versatility
A unique feature of this Ibanez Bass Workshop instrument is its innovative fingerboard design, including angled frets for a versatile tone choice. The ergonomic construction coordinates with the player's hand angle, providing a quick and smooth playing function. This versatile fingerboard offers the playability of a 35.5" scale bass, along with the comfort, and punchy tone of a 34" scale.
The Ibanez SRFF805 is equipped with a set of Bartolini pickups, with its dual coil design delivering a wide frequency range with definition and superb accuracy. Both pickups offer an incredibly balanced string-to-string pickup response, delivering a warm, soundscape with a tight bottom end and a full midrange.
3-Band EQ With EQ Bypass Switch
One of the most unique features of this 5-string bass guitar is the 3-band EQ, featuring an EQ bypass switch to shape and craft the tone of your guitar with maximum control. With controls over treble, mid, and bass, the 3-band EQ lets you to mould every nuance of your sound to find the perfect tone for your playing. The bypass switch flicks between the original and affected tone, letting you experiment and create a range of tonal possibilities.
Mid-Frequency Select Switch
In addition to 3-band EQ, the SRFF805 also features a mid-frequency select switch, letting you instantly switch between 250Hz, 450Hz, and 700Hz, the heart of the mid zone, to create a more dynamic and ideal tone when needed.
