Presenting the Ibanez SRAS7 Ashula Custom 7-String Fretted/Fretless Hybrid Bass.
The Ashula represents completely new ideas in bass design, combining a Fretless and Fretted bass in one. With its unique construction, both the fretted and fretless parts are on one neck, enabling solid tone, chord work, smooth playing, sensitive voicing, and so on.
For electronics, the fretted part of the Ashula features SRAS Super J pickups specially designed for this model. It provides a clear, bright and rich dynamic tone. The output for the fretless part is generated by AeroSilk Piezo system. It enhances an acoustic and wooden sound of similar to an upright bass.
The voicings are chosen via a custom 3-way pickup selector (Piezo/Mix/Magnetic) With various tonal possibilities provided by the three-way selection of pickup options magnetic, piezo or a mix of both, the SRAS7 will inspire your musical creativity and curiosity.
The detachable finger rest offers two options; placing your thumb near the fretboard outline or in an upper location.
The Mono-rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without string to string interference.
