Get the incredible, airy sound of an upright bass as well as fantastic electric bass tones you’ve come to expect from Ibanez, all in one remarkable instrument! The SR700 Portamento Fretless bass offers bassists the comfort of Ibanez’s legendary SR, combined with incredible electronics. Two sets of pickups: Bartolini MK1-5’s play the role of traditional electric bass pickups, while the Portamento’s Custom bridge contains the AeroSilk Piezo system that works with flat wound strings to provide true upright sound.
Ibanez crafts the SR700 with a 5-piece Maple/Bubinga thru-neck design which helps fortify the sense of an acoustic body for the player. An extended fingerboard give plenty of playroom on its Rosewood, to complete the Portamento’s overall upright acoustic sensibilities.
