Ibanez SRAS7 Hybrid Fretted/Fretless Bass
Here we have a very odd duck from Ibanez; a SRAS7 Hybrid Fretted/Fretless bass in Dragon-Eye Burst finish. This bass is a 7-string, but don’t be fooled, it isn’t an extended range bass, 3 strings (EAD) stretched over a Purpleheart fretless fingerboard and 4 strings (EADG) are over a fretted Jatoba board. This gives daring players the option of classic bass tones and then at the flip of a switch, access to smooth and sweet fretless tones as well. The bass has a pair of Ibanez Super J passive pickups for the fretted strings and three piezo saddles for the fretless neck, and a switch that toggles between the two with an option for both as well. The controls also include treble, bass, balance, and volume for the J pickups, and volume and tone for the piezos. More than just a gimmick, this bass has a great feel to it, and the sounds are the same high quality we’ve come to expect from Ibanez basses. Another, perhaps unintended sound possible with this bass comes from playing the the opposite string set to the setting you have active, making for some fun, distant delay sounds and sympathetic vibrations. This bass is an extremely versatile and fun instrument in near-mint condition and ready to ship with its original hardshell case.
