Ibanez's SRAS7 is by far one of the most original basses anyone at Music Experience has encountered, and it's one of the coolest we've gotten to play. Coming straight from the concept kitchen of tone that is Ibanez's Bass Workshop, this monster hybrid fretted/fretless bass features seven strings and all the tones you could ask for. The first three strings are fretless and cover the lower register, which is covered again by the SRAS7's top four strings, so you can effortlessly switch playing styles without getting lost on the fingerboard. To make the most of this unique design, Ibanez went with custom Super J Ashula pickups and loaded it with roundwound and flatwound strings. And with its poplar burl top, this is one bizarre bass you'll want to take home.
For 30 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.
A 7-piece SRAS neck, which features a slim grip shape made of Maple, Walnut and Purpleheart, contributes to the neck's extreme rigidity and increases sustain.
With its unique construction, both the fretted and fretless parts are on one neck, enabling solid tone, chord work, smooth playing, sensitive voicing, and so on.
Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
The fretted part is generated by SRAS Super J pickups specially designed for this model. It provides a clear, bright and rich dynamic tone.
The fretless part is generated by AeroSilk Piezo system. It enhances an acoustic and wooden sound of similar to an upright bass.
With various tonal possibilities provided by the three-way selection of pickup options magnetic, piezo or a mix of both, the SRAS7 will inspire your musical creativity and curiosity.
The detachable finger rest offers two options; placing your thumb near the fretboard outline or in an upper location.
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.
