The Ibanez SRF705 Portamento 5-String Fretless Bass provides quality and construction that gives off a top shelf vibe. The SRF5 neck features a 5pc Maple/Bubinga neck-thru construction for increased sustain and superior tone.  The neck is carved into the SR’s signature "Slim & Fast" profile to give you great playability. The SRF705 Portamento features an extended Rosewood fingerboard (the equivalent of 30 frets) for playing in upper registers usually only accessible on an upright. The body features mahogany wings to accompany the thru-body maple neck, providing maximum resonance and tone.

The Bartolini MK1 pickups provide players a powerful and aggressive tone. The Ibanez SRF705 Portamento Fretless Bass features an onboard 2-band EQ, allowing you unlimited possibilities in tone-shaping.  The Custom bridge is created specifically for the optimum performance of the AeroSilk Piezo pickup system. Unique plastic saddles were designed to work in concert with the piezo pickups and enhance the acoustic "stand-up" quality of the sound. Each pickup has its own volume control. On the back of the SR Portamento are recessed controls assigned to each individual string to control the volume of the Ibanez-exclusive AeroSilk Piezo pickup. Perfect string balance and response can be achieved by adjusting the volume to accommodate different string gauges. Case not included.

Dissappointing, overrated.


I've tried both the 4 and 6 string version. Both had issues with the fingerboard being very uneven, greatly compromising the action. The pots needed cleaning. And the piezo adjusters broke on the 4 string model, which was an expensive repair. As a professional bassist who's played a ton of instruments, I've seen more playable instruments out of Squiers.

What a tone


Went to my local Sam Ash store who btw is a way better store than GC. I was looking for this model in a four string but nobody had one. I went to see this five string anyway. Over the years I tried to fall in love with a five string and well really never could. When I tried this one out first thing was the neck as Ibanez is known for was the thinnest neck I've ever seen on a five string bass. I love an unlined fretless and this was the best price point I saw for an unlined bass. The woods used in this baby are something else. The Bartolini pick ups are warm and with lots of overtones. I thought the Piezo pick up was going to be a lot less effective than what it is. In reality it really can be dialed in for great extra tones. Any way bottom line is that at this price you are really getting a boutique bass at a reasonable price. Don't hesitate in buying this bass.
