An ultra-versatile bass with classic Ibanez bass tone plus uncompromising upright bass tone! Now you can leave your cherished upright at home and still get that classic sound at the gig. The SR705 Portamento Fretless 5-string combines great comfort with electronics that deliver a very near-to-upright sonic experience. 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 true upright sound.
The 5-piece Maple/Bubinga thru-neck design helps fortify the sense of an acoustic ‘body’ for the player, and an extended fingerboard gives plenty of playroom on its Rosewood, to complete the Portamento’s overall upright acoustic sensibilities. Want an incredible bass that can tackle virtually any style? Look no further than the Ibanez SRF705!
