Hybrid Bass For The Modern Player

In 2010 the “Ashula” was an innovative limited bass released by Ibanez, combining a fretted and fretless into one hybrid model. Now, Ibanez has upgraded this original model with the new second generation SRAS7 7 String bass. Unlike the previous version, the SRAS7 now features three strings on the fretless section, enhancing octave playing and offering more versatility for the modern player.

Comfortable Body Shape

The Ibanez SRAS7 is elegantly crafted with an ash body, along with a stunning poplar burl top. Finished in an eye-catching Dragon Eye Burst, this bass guitar will give any performance the wow factor. As well as visual aesthetics, the SRAS7 offers comfortable contours and a single cutaway design, allowing full access of the whole fingerboard with ease.

Unique Neck

The SRAS7 features a seven-piece maple, purpleheart and rosewood neck, fixed with five bolts. As well as providing a mixture of tonewoods, this combination of different woods offers stability and also transmits excellent string vibration to the body, for precise intonation. The double-fingerboard adds to the SRAS7's distinctive appearance and features a rosewood section with frets, and a purpleheart section with a fretless option. With this unique set up, chords can be played across both sections of the fingerboard, with a smooth and seamless transition between the two sections for a versatile sound that will stand out on any stage. Different radius's are applied to each section with 950mmR (fretted) and 0mmR (fretless). These two radius's allow for easy chord playing on the fretted parts and smooth soloing on the fretless parts. In addition, a detachable finger rest is also included and offers two options; placing your thumb near the fingerboard outline or in an upper location.

Electronics

The fretted part is equipped with SRAS Super J pickups, which are specially designed for this hybrid model. With these pickups players can achieve a clear, bright and rich dynamic tone. The fretless part is equipped by an Aerosilk Piezo system, providing an acoustic and wooden sound, similar to that of an upright bass. With various tonal possibilities provided by the three-way selection of pickup including magnetic, piezo or a mix of both, the SRAS7 will inspire any player's musical creativity and curiosity.

Mono-Rail V Bridge

In addition to these hybrid capabilities, the Ibanez SRAS7 7 String Fretted & Fretless Bass Guitar features a Mono-rail V bridge. This innovative design offers a wide intonation adjustment range, and each independent saddle provides a maximum string vibration transfer without any interference.

About Ibanez

Over the past 30 years, Ibanez have always been at the forefront of developing the right tools for Electric Guitar and Bass players, pushing the boundaries of music. For decades, Ibanez designers and luthiers have been the embodiment of this ideology, pushing their skills to the edge of imagination, consistently creating some of the most versatile and unique instruments ever. Although Ibanez guitars and basses have been made since 1908, it wasn't until the late 1980’s that they began to form an identity for themselves when artists such as Steve Vai and Frank Zappa began using their instruments. Now with a huge artist clientele across the globe Ibanez are a leading manufacturer of electric guitars and basses and a first choice for many dedicated musicians.
