To the newcomer, the multi-scale 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  SRMS805: multi-scale bass at an affordable price.

The goal of the multi-scale system is to give the better tension of each string. The tension helps to create a more “alive”, open tone. On the SRMS805, the scale length is 34” on the G-string side, expanding to 35.5 at the low B.
Although the multi-scale 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 multi-scales ergonomically coordinate with the way a players hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.

The SRMS805 is a quality instrument designed for the experienced, seasoned musician. Its Poplar burl / Mahogany body is attached to a 5pc Jatoba/Walnut SRMS5 neck with a Panga panga fretboard, Medium frets and custom multi-scale inlays. The Mono-Rail VS 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.

The five string I've been waiting for...


I've wanted a 5 string since the 80's but every one of them never seemed to have a solid B string. They never seemed to be taut enough and notes would rattle and even worse.. not sound musical. But with the longer scale on the B, the tension is nice and stable. The fan frets didn't take any time to get used to from regular fretting. It was quite a natural feel and a joy to play. And what a beauty! The brown topaz burst on both the body and head stock just gives the whole bass a unique look. And it sounds as good as it looks - passive and active eq modes with 3 mid frequency boosts lets you get a older school sound and still have a more modern bass tone when you need it. All in all, it is one of the best basses I've had the pleasure to play and own
