Ibanez Bass Workshop SR705 Portamento 5-string fretless
£450

Recommended Posts

Ibanez SR705 5-string fretless in brown burst. Little used (2 rehearsals, light home recording use) and as new with no dings or scratches and still with original flatwound strings (and battery!). 3 octave neck, 2 humbuckers + bridge piezo (with individual string balance controls). Controls: Volume (neck), volume (bridge), volume piezo, 2-band EQ, piezo tone. Brilliant jazz bass which does a remarkable acoustic bass impersonation and is also capable of growling like crazy or producing full, classic fretless tones when required. Complete with as new condition Gator semi-hard case (as shown in photos).

 

£450.00. May consider swap for decent nearly new (Fender) MIM Jazz or used MIA Jazz.

The bass is finished off with a Bartolini 3 band preamp with switchable low/high mid for great control over fretless tones adding either more or less honk or more or less warmth and the superb Bartolini JJ pickups in the JB position for a really inspirational bass full of punchy tones with real depth, control and plenty of mwaaah!

      Lovely, lovely little fretless here, made by Vintage, however I cant find any model number info anywhere on the bass, if you know let me know  (mystery solved - its a V940)
      Active circuitry, fitted with some unknown black flatwounds, it plays incredibly well. Knobs are master vol, pick up select, and bass and treble active pots, giving this a fairly broad tonal palette.

      Condition wise, very very good, I cant find any dings on it. The main body wood is some sort of bubinga/wenge type, with an open grain, but not as deep as wenge so I don't think its that. Weight is 4.2kg according to my bathroom scales.
      In summary, a really nice bass. Only reason this is being let go is I have too many fretlii as it is. Collection much preferred, although I do get around the country a bit with my various works, so could possibly bring somewhere near to you.

      Beautiful Overwater fretless bass, custom made for the original owner around 2005.
      The bass has a stunning quilted maple top and a nice green/blue burst finish. The fretboard is made of ebony.  It's an active bass.
      Pics:
















      There are several cosmetic damages to be found around the bass; dents, scratches, missing paint chips; battle scars. The fretboard shows signs of use but is definitely in very good condition. All hardware and electronics function like they should. The bass plays very well and has plenty of the mwah you want from a decent fretless. 
      An original, high quality Overwater gigbag/softcase is included.
      Now €1.150
      I am located in the Netherlands, but happy to ship at buyers risk (insured, well packed)

      Serious lightweight fretless 5 string. Soap bar Bart Mk 1 pickups + piezo. Nice figuring on fretboard. Excellent condition with almost new Dunlop flatwound strings. £500 posted well packed in gig bag/box, prefer £470 collected or meet around the middle of East Anglia [no sale outside UK]. PM me if you want more info or pix.  
      (Stub fretlines mean playing 'unlined' is not nearly as tricky as you might think)
