Ibanez announces 4 and 5-String fretless versions of their SR370 and SR375 basses.
According to Ibanez, “The maple body, in terms of tonal character, made it the perfect candidate for a fretless version.”
The SR 370F and 370F offer features such as an arched-top body and a 5-piece maple and rosewood neck.
According to Ibanez, “5-string” and “fretless” is a rare combination—especially at the modest end of the market. The company says that “Building really comfortable, playable 5-string basses has earned us strong word-of-mouth. Every bassmaker seems to be building 5-strings now, but what players are finding is that some of them are a lot of work to play. We led the way with our 5-string basses and Ibanez players now expect any of our 4-string offerings to also have a 5-string counterpart.”
