To the newcomer, the fanned-fret 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 SRFF806: fanned-fret bass at an affordable price.
The goal of the fanned-fret system is to give the better tension of each string. The tension helps to create a more “alive”, open tone. On the SRFF806, the scale length is 33.6” at the first string, expanding to 35.5 at the low B.
Although the fanned fret neck can appear intimidating and unnatural, nothing could be further from the truth. When looking down at the neck from the players perspective, the exagerated fret layout seems to almost disappear and actually feels quite normal. 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 SRFF806 is a quality instrument designed for the experienced, seasoned musician. Its Ash body is attached to a 5pc Jatoba/Bubinga SRFF6 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. Case not included.
