Precision-made bass with great tonewoods

Ibanez makes some very fine instruments, and the unique SRF700 is no exception. The SRF700's neck-through design offers increased sustain and enhanced tone thanks to a 5-piece maple/bubinga neck. Ibanez chose mahogany body wings for exceptional low-end impact and rich sustain. The extended rosewood fretless fingerboard sports a 30-fret length that lets you play in upper registers usually reserved for upright basses. The Ibanez SRF700 fretless bass is a bass player's dream come true. Any musician at Sweetwater will agree, the Ibanez SRF700 is a versatile and great-playing fretless bass guitar.

Powerful upright tones via piezo pickup system

Fretless bass players are always looking for unique and smooth tones. Ibanez's SRF700 fretless bass gives you new tonal options not typically found on basses in this price range. It starts off with a pair of Bartolini MK1 and an active 2-band preamp, but the SRF700 doesn't stop there. The Ibanez-exclusive AeroSilk Piezo pickup system gives you the killer upright bass tones that you've been looking for. Not just another piezo system, the AeroSilk system was custom built using plastic saddles at the bridge to enhance the "acoustic" bass tone. You can adjust each piezo pickup's volume for perfect string balance. Add this to the extended fingerboard and you have tones and notes usually reserved for upright bass players on your electric bass. The Ibanez SRF700 electric bass was designed for the fretless bass player who's looking for more.

Great tone from USA Bartolini pickups

Get ready for serious low end. The Ibanez SRF700 features two Bartolini MK1 humbucking pickups with ceramic magnets. To make the most out of the pickups - and to help you dial in the right bass tone - the SRF700 is also loaded with a powerful 2-band equalization system. You've get complete control over your bass and treble. When you combine this with the AeroSilk Piezo pickup system, you get a bass that can nail any tone in any genre of music.

SRF700 has it all

This bass has quickly jumped up to one of my all time favorites. If you you are looking for a light weight versatile fretless bass this is it.
5/5

Lovely and Smooth

I promised myself that one day I would pick up a fretless bass guitar. I got to play with this at the local music store and decided that this one is it. Months later I'm still discovering all the cool little nuances I can tweak out of it. The piezo pickup is a very nice add and lets you get some very expansive tones. The fret board is smooth as butter and glides beautifully.
5/5

Terrific axe.

There are real advantages to designing a fretless bass guitar over simply converting an existing model to fretless and marketing it as such. The lined fingerboards are generally just the same boards pulled off the assembly line before the frets are installed and filled with some plastic sheet that tends to rise and fall as the wood expands and contracts, so there's seldom a completely smooth fingerboard. The nut is usually just the same nut used on the fretted version, so it's always way too high. Often there's a single action truss rod that's nearly impossible to get a flat fingerboard. Ibanez has avoided all these pitfalls, and produced a very nice instrument at a very nice price, with some advanced features such as a piezo system and a 30 note fingerboard. It's an axe that a beginning fretless player can afford, but a professional wouldn't hesitate to use. The only con for me is the battery box. It might have been nice to have the newer drop in type. Big deal. The option of ordering an ebony board would be nice, but the rosewood fingerboard is beautiful.

Great, Versatile Fretless

The range of sound available is a little overwhelming but honestly, it's all shades of good. Preamp is dead quiet and the piezo system is wonderful. Really, really great sounding. Bass plays a lot like he SR700 series IMO.Intonation is a little easier to hit vs other basses I've owned. Honestly this is the first fretless I've owned that I could see using as a main player.

Score!!!!

Wow, and she's a beauty as well. I ordered the SRF700 from Sweetwater with Brian Rick's assistance and have been extremely pleased with my purchase. I had been looking for a really good fretless that was in the right price range and had the features I wanted. I wanted the SRF705 at the time but that wasn't available. That's OK because I'm just getting to learn the 5 string. At 7.5 lbs, Bartolini's, 30 fret neck length, she plays so easily and the tone options give her a heavenly voice. I've given her the nickname of "Ida". Now I'm saving my money for the SRF705. Sweetwater's follow up on my purchase has been great. I have never had personalized service like that from GC or MF. All future purchases are going to be from Sweetwater. Thank you Sweetwater!!!
