If you crave new inspiration to spark your creative palette, the Ibanez Bass Workshop may have already built your next instrument. This new product group focuses on combining unusual concepts with the bass-building virtuosity on which Ibanez has built its reputation.

Development of the SR "Ashula" began with one simple question: Can we create both a fretted and fretless sound on one bass? The SRAS7 "Ashula" is the answer. With its unique construction, one neck contains both fretted and fretless elements, enabling solid tone, chord work, smooth playing and sensitive voicing. Why not go hybrid? The "Ashula" expands the possibilities of the bass guitar in ways you have never experienced.

Rigidly fixed with 5 bolts, the 7pc Maple/Walnut/Purpleheart neck is extremely stable and boasts tremendous string vibration transfer to the body as well as firm intonation. The gorgeous body top of SRAS7 consists of a beautiful Poplar Burl and Ash wood.The deeper cutaway design provides easier access to the upper frets. The detachable finger rest offers two options; placing your thumb near the fretboard outline or in an upper location. The fretted sound is generated by the clear and bright SRAS Super J pickups, specially designed for this model. The fretless sound is generated by the AeroSilk Piezo system, which delivers an acoustic and wooden sound, similar to an upright bass. With unlimited tonal possibilities provided by the three-way pickup selection, the SRAS7 will inspire your musical read more creativity and curiosity. The massively stable Mono-rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each string is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.

I own this bass and was very pleased from the start. Ibanez packs a lot of craftsmanship into an inexpensive package. Very easy neck to play on for a seven string and the separation between the fretted and fretless sides makes it easy to treat them like two different basses on one instrument. The bass and treble boost allow for extra tonal options, and the pickup selection helps reduce noise by muting one side or the other. I would buy this again if lost or stolen.
