"Great Fretless Bass"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I'm relatively new to bass guitar, but I've been around for years. Recently, I fell in love with a friend's Fender fretless bass, & I had to get one of my own. After searching around and considering finances, I decided on the Ibanez SR705. I've always liked Ibanez products, tonal versatility, and this bass doesn't disappoint. Actually, it's quite nice. It plays and feels extremely smooth, the tone is great, and the quality & build are excellent. I feel I will have a very long affair with this instrument. As a matter of fact, when I pick up my Ibanez SR705 fretted after playing the fretless, it makes me feel like I've gone from something natural and organic to mechanical and clunky, although the SR705 fretted is a very nice instrument. Nothing beats a smooth fretless, and this bass plays very well. I'm very happy with my purchase. As a matter of fact, I have my first cover band gig in two weeks and I plan on using this bass, as it plays, reacts, and sounds that freakin' good.
