    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    What will I do with my $1700.00 Jaco Jazz now?

    finally got it today! The Piezo/Aero bridge pickup is SO nice by itself, and subtly adding the Bartolinis instantly offers tonal options that I don't see exhausting anytime in the near or distant future. Fast neck, and a fretless growl that is monstrous! .Amazing tonal options for the price. This will be a hard one to put down. Thanks Sweetwater and Ibanez.
