Ibanez SRH-500 Dragon Eye Burst £579
New For 2017, the Ibanez SRH500-DEF is finally available! The bass features a 55mm thickness semi-hollow body, constructed from a Spruce top and a Mahogany back. The bass has been designed to maximise the amount of hollow space which allows for greater depth and resonance and a warm, woody sound. The bass is finished in a matte ‘Dragon Eye Burst’ and is complimented by wooden details such as the truss rod cover and control knobs and black matte hardware, all of which give the SRH-500 an authentic semi-hollow feel and look.
Inheriting the compact body shape and playability from the ever popular SR series, the SRH500 provides an extremely comfortable playing experience. The specially designed elbow cut on the top meets the various demands of elbow positioning and an elegant appearance. The extended fretboard and the deep contour neck join allows unfettered access to the highest frets. The fingerboard extension also doubles up as a thumb rest for finger style playing techniques. The bass is strung with D’Addario ECB81 flat wound strings, which add to the warm tone and air of the instrument and give the SRH500 double bass characteristics. The Ibanez AeroSilk Piezo system completes the bass and provides a natural, acoustic tone and is a unique and distinctive addition to the world of semi-hollow electric bass guitars.
