    Product Description

    To the newcomer, the multiscale concept may appear a bit unusual, but the biggest surprise may be how comfortable players become within a minute or two of playing the instrument. The different fret-to-bridge distances enhance tonality, creating a better sounding bass. Previously, these instruments were only available from boutique bass builders, but now Ibanez is proud to introduce the SRFF805: multiscale bass at an affordable price.

    The goal of the multiscale system is to give the better tension of each string. The tension helps to create a more alive, open tone. On the SRFF805, the scale length is 34” on the G-string side, expanding to 35.5 at the low B.

    Although the multiscale neck can appear intimidating and unnatural, nothing could be further from the truth. When looking down at the neck from the player’s perspective, the exagerated fret layout seems to almost disappear and actually feels quite normal. The slant of the frets ergonomically coordinate with the way a players hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.

    The SRFF805 is a quality instrument designed for the experienced, seasoned musician. Its ash body is attached to a 5-piece Jatoba/Bubinga SRFF5 neck with a rosewood fretboard, medium frets and custom inlays. The Mono-Rail V Bridge is the perfect match for a multiscale instrument, allowing for independent positioning of each strings mini-bridge section to providing excellent intonation and superior string vibration transference. Electronics include Bartolini BH1-5 pickups, for a full range warm punchy tone, and a 3-band EQ w/ Bypass switch and Mid-Frequency switch for complete sonic control.

    I just got this Friday, so my experience is limited. But, the web picture does NOT do the coloring of the woodgrain justice. It ia a beautiful piece! THEN, there's the playing, Oh MY!! This is my first multiscale bass, and is sounds simply incredible. I play weekly in our praise band at church, and the tone that this put out was crisp, clear, and warm. The offset fret scale is super easy to play and makes the sounds that much clearer. The controls are easy to use and understand, yet it is highly customizable. LOVE this bass! Looking forward to many years with it.

    Fantastic Bass
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have always loved the added range of playing a 5 string, but always loathed the typical tubbiness of the low B. Recording direct into a DAW reveals the change in volume and attack that occurs on any standard 5 string bass. This fanned fret masterpiece fixes this issue. The string to string balance is evident not only in the sound but in the feel as well. Hands down this is the happiest I've been with a 5 string bass. I've owned several 5's from Ibanez, Music Man, Yamaha, Dean and Fender. The SRFF805 bests them all in feel and tone. It took all of 10 seconds to dial in my perfect tone through my Amp. For a 4 string, my main bass is a Music Man Classic Stingray. A super quality bass. This will more than likely replace that bass, because of how smooth it plays and sounds. I am surprised to even have this thought, let alone type it in a review... So, I am more than pleased with this Bass and consider it a lifer. I highly recommend it.

    Mind blown by the tone
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have never been I big fan of Ibanez basses but I ordered this bass from AMS because I wanted to try out an affordable fanned fret bass. It was a gamble because I never buy an instrument without playing one but this has been a winner! The fanned fret took me absolutely no time to adapt. Even at flat setting this bass sings beautifully. The low B is the best of any of my 5 string basses. I have owned Lakland, Warwick, Rickenbacker, Ernie Ball Musicman, Spector and others. This bass will be competing for rotation in my songs with my other two favorite basses (Rickenbacker 4001 and Music Man Stringray 5 classic). This bass has a very nice low-mid growl. Very happy with the electronics and pickups too. I will keep this bass stock. I measured the low B scale at 35 3/4"(nut to last contact on saddle) My only wish is that Ibanez would have went to a 36-34 scale.
