Ibanez SRFF805 Fanned Fret 5-String Bass Guitar
Ibanez is proud to introduce the first-ever production model fanned-fret basses: the five-string SRFF805BKS and the six-string SRFF806BKS. Introduced in 1989, the fanned fret system is a revolutionary concept designed to create a better sounding, better playing bass. Previously, fanned fret instruments were available only to those who could afford the high-priced boutique instruments from private luthiers. Now, as part of their Premium Instrument line, Ibanez makes this unique, high-quality instrument available to the working musician.
Built at the Ibanez Premium Production Facility, the SRFF805 and 806 each consists of an Ash body attached to a 5pc Jatoba/Bubinga SR neck with a Rosewood fretboard, Medium frets and Acrylic custom fanned inlays. The innovative Mono-Rail V Bridge system was decided as the perfect match for a fan-fret instrument, allowing for independent positioning of each strings bridge piece to provide excellent intonation and superior vibration transference. Electronics include Bartolini® BH1 pickups, for a thick, punchy, full-range of tone, and a 3-band EQ w/ Bypass switch and Mid-Frequency switch for complete sonic control.
The goal of the fanned-fret system is to even the tension of each string. Equalized tension helps to create a more “alive,? open tone. On the SRFF805/806, the scale length is 34? on the highest pitch string side, expanding to 35.5 at the low B. The slant of the fanned-frets ergonomically coordinate with the way a players hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action. The result is better tone, expanded harmonic complexity and improved playability across all five strings.
