Ibanez SRFF805 Fan Fret Bass, 5-String

To the newcomer, the fanned-fret concept may appear a bit unusual, but the biggest surprise may be how comfortable players become within a minute or two of playing the instrument. The different fret-to-bridge distances enhance tonality, creating a better-sounding bass. Previously, these instruments were only available from boutique bass builders, but now Ibanez is proud to introduce the SRFF805: a fanned-fret bass at an affordable price.

zZounds Bass Specialist Martin demos the Ibanez SRFF806 and SRFF805 in this video:


The goal of the fanned-fret system is to deliver the preferred tension on each string. The tension helps to create a more "alive", open tone. On the SRFF805, the scale length is 34" on the G-string side, expanding to 35.5 at the low B.

Although the fanned-fret neck can appear intimidating and unnatural, nothing could be further from the truth. When looking down at the neck from the player's perspective, the exaggerated fret layout seems to almost disappear and actually feels quite normal. The slant of the fanned frets ergonomically coordinate with the way a players hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.

The SRFF805 is a quality instrument designed for the experienced, seasoned musician. Its Ash body is attached to a 5-piece jatoba/bubinga SRFF5 neck with a rosewood fretboard, medium frets and custom fanned inlays. The Mono-Rail V Bridge is the perfect match for a fan-fret instrument, allowing for independent positioning of each strings "mini-bridge" section to providing excellent intonation and superior string vibration transference. Electronics include Bartolini BH1-5 pickups, for a full range warm punchy tone, and a 3-band EQ with bypass switch and mid-frequency switch for complete sonic control.

zZounds Expert Review
Ibanez's SRFF805 has great features like a beautiful ash body, super tight Bartolini pickups and a Mono-Rail V bridge, but its diagonal fanned frets are truly eye-catching. At first glance, it looked a bit intimidating, but after plugging in and playing, I was floored by the comfort of the neck and how natural the fanned frets felt. The Bartolini pickups have an ultra-clear sound. The added intonation accuracy of fanned frets really popped out in the upper register. Even chords and double stops above the twelfth fret rang beautifully in tune, clear as a bell.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "One word...AMAZING!!"
Overall: This is by far one of the best I've played. For the first time I can honestly say I have TOTAL tonal control straight from this bass. The bridge along with the fan frets makes this bass sing! Beautiful sustain and the B string is very clear. I'm a female bass players with smaller hands. There was a slight learning curve to the board but nothing that I wasn't able to work out within the first day of playing. If you are thinking about buying the bass, stop thinking, and do it!! You will not regret it. There were a few minor marks on the fret board that was barley noticeable and nothing that interfered with the sound or my playing. I emailed zZounds about the issue and within the hour they responded with a solution. Awesome buy, awesome customer service.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Upgrade!"
Overall: The Ibanez SRFF805 Fan Fret Bass, 5-String is very well built, with great balance, feel, and tone! The ergonomic fan-fret design is perfectly natural with no learning curve at all! The only negative I have, is that I feel the electronics are a bit much. I engage the EQ bypass switch, because there is really no need to have an EQ on the instrument itself, since I am already mixing the signal through the EQ on my amp head. A bit of overkill, IMO. Other than that, I love it!
