Introducing the Ibanez Bass Workshop SRMS805 Multi-Scale Bass Guitar - Brown Topaz Burst, the perfect instrument for the seasoned musician who demands superior comfort, tonal versatility, and exceptional playability. Handcrafted with precision and attention to detail, the SRMS805 combines a stunning array of tonewoods, cutting-edge hardware, and innovative electronics to deliver a truly exceptional bass-playing experience.
At the heart of the SRMS805 is a poplar-burl-topped walnut/mahogany body that produces a warm, earthy tone with a round bottom and bright top end. The five-piece jatoba/walnut neck is not only a tonal complement to the body but also provides excellent comfort and stability, allowing you to play for hours on end without any fatigue or discomfort.
The SRMS805's multi-scale fingerboard is an exciting new development in bass guitar design, offering optimal tension and playability across the entire fretboard. With a longer scale on the bass side of the instrument and a shorter scale on the treble side, the multi-scale frets deliver superior intonation and more consistent tension and attack from string to string. This results in a more open and natural tone that is free from the inconsistencies often found in traditional basses.
To further enhance the SRMS805's tonal versatility, Ibanez has fitted the bass with a pair of Bartolini BH2 dual-coil pickups. These pickups provide incredible depth and clarity, maintaining a superb balance between clarity and depth. The long-blade pole pieces offer hum-free single-coil-style character and consistency, while the active 3-band EQ delivers wide frequency-range adjustments on each band. Additionally, the 3-way midrange switch allows you to define your instrument's presence, giving you total control over your sound.
The SRMS805 also features a Mono-Rail VS bridge that ensures complete string isolation and maximum sustain per string. This innovative bridge design solves the issue of too much string cross-talk that many basses struggle with. By separating the bridge into five independent "mini bridges," the Mono-Rail VS maximizes vibration transfer without interference from the other strings. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference. This results in superior sustain and clarity, allowing you to hear every note with exceptional clarity and detail.
The Bass Workshop SRMS805 is finished with eye-catching black matte hardware, adding to its sleek and modern aesthetic. With its exceptional tonal versatility, superior comfort, and innovative design, the SRMS805 is the ultimate bass guitar for the discerning musician.
