With its maximized hollow space, the SRH500F breaks another boundary with its sleek, compact, comfortable lightweight body. Unlike other hollow body basses, the SRH500F features a spruce top with mahogany back and sides and the 55 mm-thick semi-hollow body delivers a rich acoustic tone.
Ibanez Bass Workshop SRH500F Fretless Bass Guitar Features
- Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides
- 55 mm-thick semi-hollow body
- Bound Rosewood fingerboard
- Fretless fingerboard layout
- AeroSilk Piezo system
The specially designed forearm contour on the body top offers playing comfort, and adds an elegant accent to its appearance. A bound rosewood fingerboard features black fret lines that balance competing goals for guiding positions and keep the fretboard from disturbing the atmosphere expected in a fretless layout. A contoured neck heel is applied to create a deep neck joint with unfettered access to upper frets. The custom bridge contains the magic of the AeroSilk Piezo system, which works with D'Addario ECB81 flat wound strings to provide that sense of air that characterizes the upright sound.
