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

Unlike other hollow body basses, the SRH boasts a unique concept: the integration of the authentic feel expected in a hollow body and the key features that distinguish SRH as a contemporary bass. With its sleek, compact, comfortable, lightweight body, the SRH breaks another boundary to open up your playing.

With its maximized hollow space, Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, the 55 mm-thick semi-hollow body delivers a rich acoustic tone. The specially designed forearm contour on the body top offers playing comfort and adds an elegant accent to its appearance. A panga panga fretboard with offset position markers, caps a 5pc Jatoba/Walnut neck with a contoured neck heel that creates a deep neck joint with unfettered access to the upper frets. The custom bridge contains the magic of the AeroSilk Piezo system, which works with D'Addario ECB81 flat wound strings to provide that sense of "air" that characterizes upright sound.

For the price, this bass is great. I have it strung up with La Bella Balanced flats and it sounds amazing. The piezo pickup is way more flexible than I would have thought. It's extremely light and comfortable to play for hours. One thing to keep in mind is that the fretlines are nearly invisible in bad lighting. The dots are lined up with the lines which helps a lot for fretless newbie such as myself. I only have a couple complaints. The setup it came with was really bad. The setup it had out of the box was really bad. Also, there were a few rough spots on the neck that I had to smooth out with some steel wool. Next, it does neck dive which I expected for a 5 string semi-hollow. I'll put some Hipshot ultralights on it eventually. Overall, I really love the bass. For the price it's really hard to find a better option.
