Ibanez SR Bass Workshop Fretless 5-string Electric Bass – Brown Topaz Burst Low Gloss

5-string Fretless Electric Bass with Maple Top, Okoume Body, Maple/Walnut Neck, Panga Panga Fingerboard, and 2 Split-coil Pickups – Brown Topaz Burst Low Gloss

Acoustic-like Tones from a Fretless Electric

Ring in a new low-end era with this stellar Ibanez. We suggest the SR Bass Workshop Fretless electric bass for anyone looking to make a foray into fretless instruments. This bass’s lightweight and delightfully resonant okoume body fares excellently when paired with its fretless fingerboard. Meanwhile, its maple top adds a slight treble sheen to the sound. The bass’s two Nordstrand Big Break pickups offer a sound ranging from massive power to cleaned-up single-coil. A hidden gem of the SR Bass Workshop is the AeroSilk under-saddle pickup system, which adds an acoustic quality to the overall sound. Ease of playability is unquestionable, thanks to a 5-piece maple/walnut neck and bound panga panga fingerboard that wrap it all together.

Unfettered electric bass performance

We’ve never met an Ibanez bass we didn’t like, and the same holds true for the SR Bass Workshop Fretless! This bass holds down a 31-fret range, giving you a full 2-and-a-half octaves to strut your low-end stuff. Its resonant okoume body is actually half semi-hollow, combining with the AeroSilk under-saddle piezo pickups to give you more of a natural, acoustic bass experience with all the modern convenience of a slimmed-down electric. The exotic maple top wood shines through its gorgeous finish, giving this bass a stunning natural appearance. A bolt-on 5-piece maple/walnut neck feels comfortable for quick jazzy runs, and the bound panga panga fingerboard is excellent for funky soloing. Lastly, luminescent side dot inlays assist your fingers to fret markers on dark stages.

Revel in versatile pickups

As a bassist, why settle for puny sound? Luckily you’ll never have to when you pick up the Ibanez SR Bass Workshop Fretless! Interred in its body are a pair of Nordstrand Big Break pickups, dialing up massive sound with plenty of power, character, and grit. Nordstrand achieved this impressive sound by cramming a split-coil into a soapbar-style pickup, so its no surprise when you find the characteristics of full-bodied sound and the clarity of a single-coil pickup beneath one roof. But the SR Bass Workshop Fretless doesn’t stop there. It also features an AeroSilk under-saddle piezo designed for natural acoustic bass tone that further enhances the sonic enjoyment of this bass guitar. Bassists love the added benefit of noiseless operation for cleaner tone plus a 2-band EQ — you will too.
