Overview

To the newcomer, the Multi-scale 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: Multi-scale bass at an affordable price.

The goal of the Multi-scale system is to give the better tension of 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 Multi-scale neck can appear intimidating and unnatural, nothing could be further from the truth. When looking down at the neck from the players perspective, the exaggerated fret layout seems to almost disappear and actually feels quite normal. The slant of the Multi-scale-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 5pc 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 w/ Bypass switch and Mid-Frequency switch for complete sonic control.

      Comments about Ibanez SRFF805 Fanned Fret 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

      This bass sounds very good (much better than the online videos) the active/Passive switch was a nice touch. It is not cheaply made at all fit and finish were very good. The neck was smooth and fast . The Jack can be a pain to get unplugged but I never had any Issue plugging it in. The Preamp is very responsive and tone can go from Vintage Motownish to brite modern depending on if you have it in active or passive.
      I found it very comfortable overall to play and a much more natural position than most normal Basses I have played.

        Comments about Ibanez SRFF805 Fanned Fret 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

        I purchased the bass as a backup five string. I was interested in the fanned frets and Bartolini pickups. The bass sounds okay and is fun to play, but it is still cheaply made. The input jack has a terrible recessed design which is hard to plug in.

        Bass for a lifetime

        Comments about Ibanez SRFF805 Fanned Fret 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

        This is a phenomenal bass guitar. This is bass number four for me, but I'll never want another. The tone, clarity and playability of this bass are unmatched. I love the sustained low notes on the longer B and E strings. Adapting to fan-fretting from traditional bass: no problem at all. No dull spots or bad tones through any of the EQ settings. Easy to play and sounds great in any venue!
